W1206 WINCHESTER 1892 RIFLE

Item # W1206-24-149

W1206  WINCHESTER 1892 RIFLE 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. 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. An interesting rifle!

This gun retains a heavy dark patina. Some rounding to the corners and shows a fair amount of use. Looks as though it was used for hunting daily. It still is not a bad representative of a short rifle.

Item # W558-24-278

W558 WINCHESTER MODEL 53 25-20 cal. The model 53 is a very popular gun. We have a hard time keeping them on the shelf. This one has most blue remaining. Thinning in some spots.
