Mike - is there just one chambering you are set on, or are you open to various chamberings?  Steve-

I’m just enjoying the view these days, Steve. Next few months will be a bit of a fiscal strain so I’m studying the market and playing with the toys I already have. To answer your question I would prefer 38WCF or 32WCF but I won’t rule out the others if the situation is right. At the moment I’d rather take a few to the range than bring another one home. It’s a lot of fun taking these old treasures out for a day at the range and I have a couple of projects I’m pretty excited about.

Hello RickC,

I have a bunch of Model 1892's in all different calibers.  I tend to try to buy a bit unique configurations, followed by condition and the caliber choice is last on my list.  Size does not count.  It all comes down to your personal preference, check book size, and intended usage.  Don't collect by other persons desires.  I would always say buy what YOU want.  When you do get around to getting serious I am happy to answer any questions and help in any way.  Do to before you pull out the checkbook!  I hate passing out bad news.

And David I am working on that book!

Glad to read you are working on the book!


That's an impressive collection of Model 1892's, the cabinets look to be custom made for Winchesters!


All the best
