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!
Modern $ 1,775.
W441 WINCHESTER 1892 SHORT RIFLE
Item # W441
At least it is now. It likely started out life as a 24" round bbl. It is now a 20" round bbl in cal 38 WCF. Magazine has been modified to about a 2/3 length. Bbl is blue/brown aged patina. Also an aged medium brown frame. Somewhat early gun being in the 220k serial range. Bore has scattered pitting but overall good condition. Action is nice. Buttstock is in better condition than one would expect. Fit is relatively good to both upper and lower tang. Coat of oil was rubbed on years ago. The forearm is nice except for a chip missing on the right hand side towards the forearm cap. This gun has a few warts but is still a good solid gun and well worth the price.
Modern $ 895.
W432 HIGH CONDITION WINCHESTER 92
Item # W432
This is a very late take down 92 being almost 1M serial number. Looks like it was bought and then rarely used. Bbl retains 98%+ remains. Mag tube also. The take down ring an aged blue which is normally the first area to change color on these. Finish is also aged on the forearm cap and crescent buttplate. That is the nature of the beast on these late 92's. This is the late version of bluing that had the tendency of flaking. There is flaking at the front of the frame and also flaking on the bottom tang. Top of the bolt also exhibits some flaking. The rest of the finish is all there. Cal 32 WCF with a pristine bore. Exceptional Winchester 92!
Modern $ 4,750.
W330 ANTIQUE 1892 WINCHESTER RIFLE
Item # W330
Nice early gun at just over 20k serial number. Oct bbl, full mag, crescent buttplate and cal 38 WCF. A good eye appealing gun with a nice vintage look. Bbl is blue towards the muzzle end and a more brown color towards the frame. Don't quite know if someone has put a little bit of finish on it. No sanding or anything has been done but color is just a bit different. Mag tube has no dents and has an aged color to it as does the frame. There is about 25% blue on the frame with the rest being a silver mostly at the carry point. Nice fitting wood with all 4 corners good. The forearm does not have the often seen crack. On the bottom of the stock behind the lower frame is a brass circle that looks like it may have had a letter on it at one time. Don't quite understand what that was? All in all this is a very nice Winchester 92. Antique 92's and 94's are seen for sale less and less. Here is your chance to own one at a reasonable price. Comes with a copy of a Winchester Letter.
Antique $ 2,275.

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.
Antique $ 1,395.
W203 INTERESTING 1892 WINCHESTER RIFLE
Item # W203
.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!
Antique $ 3,250.

8484 WINCHESTER MODEL 92 DELUXE SHORT RIFLE IN 44 CALIBER SMOOTH BORE
Item # 8484-26-168
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.
Modern $ 18,500 .

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.
