Sean,

Thanks for the link to the photos.  The email address is fine it was probably kicked back because the attachments were to large.

  1. Hi I have a Winchester 1892 44 WCF

Serial number is 771152.

There is no proof makings on it that I can see. 

However I live in the UK so I’m wondering how it got here or why they didn’t stamp it. 

 

Thanks for any help

Hello,

My first question would be is the gun a saddle ring carbine?  Your serial number is certainly within a group of DCP marked carbines which I have found.  The rifle may have just been a private purchase and not one of the group purchased by GB.  Can you please post several photos showing all of the markings on the gun.   Or send them to my email at 2bitrifles@gmail.com

Thanks

Michael

Yes it is a saddle ring carbine.

I will take some pictures when I get time and email them.

 

Thanks again.

This is the Dominion of Canada Proof mark you are looking for. Let us know how you get on.

 

Also if the carbine has any other military looking stampings such as the letters D.P. stamped any where.

here is my 1894 in .30wcf . serial number#743830.

the rear sight was cut off and the front sight blade replaced with a nickel. they could be replaced though and the rest of the gun is complete.

i was wondering if i sent for a Cody letter would it give me any more info then just the date the gun was made?

Hello,

The only information for your rifle would be the serial number application date.   There is no factory ledger information for your serial number range.

No, unfortunately it will not.  Based on the other DCP marked Model 1894 Carbines I have checked, yours was serialized in late February, 1915.

At least you know it was one of 5,000 Model 1994 SRC’s in .30WCF that were purchased by the British Admiralty in early 1915.

 

If you look at the first post on this survey and under the military Winchester topic on this forum, you will get a bit more information on why the British bought these carbines along with 20,000 Model 1892 SRC’s.

 

Most people will never know the history of the carbine they have if it was made after the cut-off for the records that Cody hold.

Hello Sean

 

Your carbine is in the latter half of the DCP marked carbine serial number range, I have. The next closest to your carbine I have noted is, 775005.

Thanks Butch. I have added this to the data base.

 

Your rifle serial number falls pretty much in the middle of the serial number range, so far observed.

Info for survey.

I have a DCP Winchester 92 Ser No. 760604 in 44WCF, it is a Royal Navy saddle ring carbine.

These were purchased for use by Navy boarding parties and shore patrols, not mine shooting,

I understand the Mod 94 30WCF may have been used for this, bit more range.

They also purchased a number of Colt Single Action Revolvers in .44/40 for the officers.

I have handled one that was Navy marked and was hanging on the wall of a Pub for 50 years!

At the time the 44WCF was an official Admiralty cartridge along with the .303 and .455.

I also have a .25/20 Mod 92 rifle, Ser No. 135850 round barrel, SG butt, Lyman Sight half mag,

with pre 1904 London Proof Marks.

Thank you for the information regarding your DCP Model 1892 SRC. Your serial number 760604 falls about mid-way in the range of serial numbers so far observed. The closest number I have to your carbine is 760856.

 

As you may know 20,000 Model 1892 SRC were purchased along with 5,000 .30WCF Model 1894 SRC’s.

 

The Colt single action in 44.40 you mention is of interest to me. When you say it was Navy marked are you able to tell me what this mark was exactly? The Royal Navy did end up with some odd ball handguns, including Colt Government Model pistols in .45ACP  – not .455 Auto – , .38 S&W revolvers, 9mm Long Browning Model 1903’s with shoulder stocks, Remington Model 51 semi autos, .32ACP H&R semi autos and so on. However, I have never seen a reference to Colt single action Army revolvers being issued.

 

Regards

Hi Alan, I dont own this carbine anymore, but based on my list of serial number winchesters I have keeped, I am fairly certain this one was  DCP marked.

WIN 92 44WCF. #775687

I got it from Ken Burton and sold it to Peter Thurley, about 20yrs ago. It was in really nice condition from Memory
