W1015 INTERESTING DELUXE WINCHESTER 1892 SHORT RIFLE

Item # W1015

W1015  INTERESTING DELUXE WINCHESTER 1892 SHORT RIFLE Cal 25-20.Takedown configuration with 20" bbl, short takedown forearm, folding tang rear sight and pistol grip checkered deluxe wood. Correct eyes for Winchester sling. Scarce double set trigger. A truly unique gun. This is one of two that are known in this configuration. Both are Deluxe short rifles with the gold border inlays around the receiver and monogram. I first encountered this gun about 45 years ago at the Downtown Denver Show. At that time it was owned by McCroskie of the Denver State Bank. He stated that there were 2 of these guns given to brothers. Both had the monograms engraved, both short rifles and both had the gold borders. At that time he said he was planning on acquiring the 2nd one but I don't believe he did since it has not surfaced. This one is pictured in "The Art of the Gun Volume IV" pg. 32 by Robert M. Lee and R.L. Wilson. Gun was also in John Wood's collection for a number of years. All original gun in Excellent condition with about 98% bright glossy blue. Very light handling mars.

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!
