W1526 WINCHESTER 1892 44 SRC
Item # W1526
Well sort of, at least that is what it started it's life as. There has been some changes done to it through the years. Bbl is 22". It is now marked "Model 92". The 92 looks a bit suspicious like it may be covering up a 53. Another oddity is the forearm which looks like a 64 forearm. The receiver has been re-blued. If I haven't lost you yet please keep reading. There is a bright side to all this. One being a "put your sunglasses on" brilliant bright bore! More good news, as stated, it has been nicely re-blued making the receiver look very nice. Wood looks nice and fits nice. No cracks or losses. Absolute smooth tight crisp action. This would be a great gun to take out and have fun shooting!

W465 WINCHESTER 1892 44 CALIBER SRC
Item # W465
The good news is that it is a 44 cal SRC. This gun has been used. Someone knew they had a good rifle and they used it a lot! The whole gun is a brown color with oxidation throughout. No one has tried to clean it and it has an honest "done that" look. Right down to the fact that it has a split at the bore. I don't know if it had been used to shoot Carp or what? Split is right at the bore coming down to the bbl band. Action is sluggish but all parts appear to be present. Wood has the normal crack off the forearm. Buttstock is off a rifle since it is a crescent buttplate. It does fit well to the frame and both tangs. This would be a great gun to hang over the fireplace! Comes with some sort of letter of history from Mexico.

Item # W1596 -26-153
Cal 25-20. Special order carbine with a button mag. Nice blue on the bbl. Receiver is almost totally a grey color. 800k serial range. Action works good. Bore needs a good cleaning and should clean up to be good. Stock is shy at the upper and lower tangs and also quite shy at the butt plate. A coat of something has been added. Overall wood cond is good with no cracks. Standard carbine ladder sight. You don't see a lot of carbines in 25-20.

W89 WINCHESTER 92 OCT RIFLE
Item # W89 -26-178
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. Based on the upper tang stamp style this rifle was most likely manufactured some place in the serial number range between 475000 and 502000 which corresponds to 1909 production. There are the occasional guns in 1910 with that tang but not common.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.

W1650 WINCHESTER MODEL 1892 SRC
Item # W1650-26-185
38 WCF. Standard carbine configuration with full length mag tube and carbine sights. A good looking gun with quite a bit of finish remaining. Nice bbl blue with just light wear in spots. Receiver still has quite a bit of blue. This is getting close to the 700k range when they did have some flaking. Exhibited somewhat, mostly on the left side. The rest is good blue. Good fitting wood in VG cond with no cracks. Bore is also good with light scattered pitting. Case colors remain on hammer and lever. The lever especially has some nice colors. A good looking Winchester!
