Description:

This is a very fine Winchester Model 1892 Rifle in desirable .25-20 WCF caliber. The included factory letter confirms the octagon barrel in .25-20 caliber and plain trigger. The letter also states the rifle was received in the warehouse on October 14, 1903, and shipped on October 15, 1903. The rifle is fitted with a combination Beach front sight, an elevation adjustable rear sight, and a folding tang peep sight. The top barrel flat has the standard two-line Winchester legend ahead of the rear sight and "25-20 WCF" at the breech. Mounted on a plain walnut forearm and straight grip stock. The stock is fitted with a crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retaining 95% plus original blue finish with brown patina on the balance. 70% original niter blue remains on the loading gate. The hammer and lever retain 60% plus original case colors. The buttplate has a smooth brown-gray patina with a couple small patches of pitting. The wood is very fine with some minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
