I just acquired: Model 92 saddle ring carbine, Serial #987357, 44 W.C.F.,  Button magazine

The barrel markings have "-MODEL 92- WINCHESTER" on the right side under the sight.  The "44 W.C.F." just in front of the receiver on the left side.  The "MANUFACTURED BY" roll mark on the barrel left side in front of the sight. 

The tang has the type 6 stamp with out the dashes.

Came from a ranch south of San Francisco.  Far from a mint gun, but the bore is pristine.  Used and cared for, but probably spent time in a leather scabbard.

Hello Roger,

The serial number indicates a 1929 production date, but it might have a "28" marked barrel on it.  The upper tang marking is the Type-7.  Interestingly, serial number 987341 is identical to 987357, and may indicate a batch of them were made.

Hello Bert,

I had a crazy busy summer and was out of the loop for long periods of time so I missed this post.  I have seen several of the "right side marked Model barrels."  They are all 44 WCF SRC's and are in a range of more than 12,000 SN's!  So the batch idea is hard to make sense of.  The Model designation had to be stamped on the right since the guns were made with older barrels which already had the Type 3 barrel address and caliber stamp on the left side.  There was no Model designation in the Type 7 tang stamp so the right side was the place to mark the gun.

Thanks 

Michael

Looking through my spread sheet I have 14 Model 92's that are marked with the Model designation on the right side of the barrel.  SN's range from 975875 to 998559 (late 1028 to mid 1930).  All are button mag 44 WCF SRC's with the exception of two 15 inch full mag SRC's.
