W1526 WINCHESTER 1892 44 SRC
Item # W1526 -27-168
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!

W289 FACTORY ENGRAVED WINCHESTER 1892 SHORT RIFLE
Item # W289
This rifle has a host of features including the Factory Engraving, 20" oct bbl, take down and to top it off 44 cal! The bbl is mostly a grey with some blue in protected areas. Receiver has had a lot of wear and the orig engraving is faint in areas. This is the style 10 engraving with the deer on the left side. The deer is barely visible but the engraving still does show up. Extra figure wood that was sanded and oiled at some time. The extra figure really stands out. Crescent buttplate. The forearm is in about the same condition and has the typical crack in the upper corner and a slight piece missing from the left hand side. Good bore. A very unique special order Winchester with the Letter to prove it! .

This gun was lavishly done with contemporary engraving and gold inlays. All is complemented by beautiful deluxe wood. Cal 32 WCF which has been re-stamped on the bbl as has "Winchester" on the upper tang. This gun was custom built, custom re-furbished and has quite a bit of eye appeal!

W89 WINCHESTER 92 OCT RIFLE
Item # W89 -27-190
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.
Antique $ 1,395.
