… and began my love to the Lever Action Winchester rifles.

Now, I´m the lucky ownwer of at least one original rifle of all the LA models, 1866,1873, 1876, 1866, 1892, 1894 and 1895.

Today I´ll like to show you my last adquisition, a model 92 engraved. In next posts, I´ll show you my other rifles.

…or put on any model, with a few exceptions.   The 62 adjustable tang sight is an exception as the catalog notes for Model 1873.

I have seen Model 1876 rifles with the set screw front sight.  Those sights are most likely not original to those rifles.  But as TR said, if it looks as if it belongs

…rifle has an extra length barrel.  Most (but not all) of these had a set trigger. 

I think "special order" is a collector term.

Here is an 1876 that has similar features to yours.

SN 37364

Type: Rifle

Caliber: 45/60

Barrel Type: 1/2 Octagon

Barrel Length: 30 inches

This sold at the Redding auction on saturday.  Pretty nice condition. This must be the early type for the 1876 and 1886 guns? It isn't marked 1892. Winchester – Brass Mirror Bore Light – Good Marking | Firearms & Military Artifacts  Firearms  | Online

…it as well. At $20000.00 that would translate into app $36,000.00 Canadian after all the expenses and $ exchange. I did get lot 302 , the 1876 case colored rifle and lot 449, a poor cond '94 deluxe that I'll likely part out. I also got a pretty nice '94 deluxe over at Milestone Auctions lot

…the early ones as it's not marked with the "Model 1892" date.  One can presume that when they were introduced in 1887 they would fit the 1866, 1873, 1876, and 1886.  My guess is that it would not fit the Hotchkiss.  Not sure about the Single Shot but as you can look through the breech out the barrel

Thats what makes sense to me.  You kind of get the picture that with the introduction of the 1876, they werent just flying off the warehouse shelves.  That would possibly explain the presence/absence of lids" as others have pointed out up to or

…is probably a summary count of rifles with sling swivels in the Houze book on 1876's.   Bob, regarding the sling swivels, while they are not mentioned in the ledger for 63827, they appear to be original on this late deluxe rifle

…between May and July of 1878.  He gives numbers in the 700 range for the 10 lids to be fitted, I assume these are serial numbers?  If so, these are 1876 made guns that sat in the warehouse until fitted in 1878.  There is of course no mention when these 10 guns left the warehouse  This gets more

According to ledger records the first 5 1876 rifles to have lids added were guns 1682-1686, based on the serial sequence. But the ledger page shows clearly that they left in the year 1879. I…

…in the 1870s maintained by Superintendent V.A. King that use the following terms interchanged throughout them. Model 1866, Model 1873, Model 1876, Model "73, "Model 66", Model "76, Mod 73 & 66, Mod 76, and simply "66, "73, "76.

So who knows exactly what Winchester Management was thinking
