Okay, so it’s an 1892 SRC with pistol grip.  What caliber?

Better yet, please post the letter?

Nice, very nice. Can’t say I’ve seen another and I really like the chambering and PG. Appears to be an honest, extremely well-cared-for carbine. IMHO it don’t have to be fancy to be special. Congrats!

Thanks Mike, I really love the odd stuff. It appears all original, no sanded stock or touched up blue. And give the fact it has the smooth pistol grip it was a no brainer. Had to pass on an 86 for it but what the heck. some times you have to become diversed!

A very nice find! You can buy a pistol grip 86 anytime You want one. A pistol grip 92 carbine doesn’t show up very often. Congratulations!

That’s a great carbine. Like others have said, you don’t see them with a smooth pistol grip very often, and I really like the early letter. Nice find.

Nice rifle for sure.  I think it was one of the better offerings at Amoskeag.  Could I please get detailed images of the upper tang, barrel address, and caliber stamp to enter into my survey?    [email protected]

Thanks

True story regarding how scarce it is to find a carbine with a PG, especially a 92. I got too hung up on checkered guns and didn’t pay enough attention to that fact – ended up selling this little jewel way too cheap when I downsized. It was a 38 WCF and both the capped pistol grip and rifle butt lettered. Just something about the plain wood and the PG which is really appealing to me. Live and learn!

Thats really very nice find. One of the best thing about this that it has the smooth pistol grip & no brainer.
