W89 WINCHESTER 92 OCT RIFLE

Item # W89

W89  WINCHESTER 92 OCT RIFLE Cal is a custom gunsmith stamping "38". I checked the round and 38-40 does fit. This gun has been re-finished. The blue would only be called fair. It was way overbuffed. Bbl address is very faint. They even buffed out the serial number and reapplied number 1. The wood is relatively good but the finish does not match. The buttstock has a filled hole on the bottom. Forearm is a nice piece of wood. Orig rear sight missing the elevator. The front sight is a strange modified thing. Action is good. Bore is fair to good.

W203 INTERESTING 1892 WINCHESTER RIFLE

Item # W203

W203  INTERESTING 1892 WINCHESTER  RIFLE .38WCF Cal. Oct bbl, full mag and crescent butt. Receiver is a grey/brown patina with hints of blue in protected areas. The bbl has aged to a blue/brown color. Butt stock fits nice. It has a repaired chip in the upper corner and the orig piece was used. Nice and solid and fits good. The rest of the stock is in good cond. Good fit to upper and lower tang. Forearm wood is very nice and good fitting. Action is good. Bore is a bit rough and could use a good cleaning. This is a very interesting gun because it has "WRACO" stamp over where the serial number had been. Winchester would not do business with companies like Sears & Roebuck and others that would cut the retail price of their guns. Those companies would have to get the Winchesters they sold from other dealers or jobbers that would remove the serial number so Winchester could not trace it back to them as the source. When one of those guns with the serial number removed was returned to Winchester for repair, it would have the "WRACO" marking put on it, making them quite a rare specimen. An interesting rifle!

Item # 8484-25-173

8484 WINCHESTER MODEL 92 DELUXE SHORT RIFLE IN 44 CALIBER SMOOTH BORE Orig 20 full oct bbl, full length magazine, orig sights, exc bore. Orig deluxe checkered fancy straight stock wood is in exc cond with metal shotgun style butt plate and correct short style forearm. Overall gun retains nearly all of the orig blue, shows very little signs of use. I believe this is one of the guns that was made up for the MGM movie company in the 30's; it has all the configurations of that grouping of firearms. They have appeared in a number of variations-almost all were 20" short rifles. This one has probably some of the most unique features I've seen and I think it is the most desirable. Very attractive. An asset to any serious Winchester collection.
