Michael,

I may have sent this info previously but just in case... Model 1892, serial # 529775, 38 WCF,  24" octagon barrel, full tube.  Nice shooter. I'm not certain on the front and rear sight make/model and will send follow up post with photos.

Mac,

The front sight is original the rear sight is definitely not.   Could you put up pics of the barrel address, caliber stamp, and upper tang please.  And thanks so much for adding the rifle!!!

Hello Bill,

Thanks so much for the information.  Does it have a short slide handle?  Any chance that the magazine end is collared as in the attached photo?  The muzzle face "should be" perfectly flat vs rounded.

Michael,

Here are the requested pix of 1892 serial # 529775.  I hope they are clear enough.  Any recommendation for correct rear sight/elevator and source?

Thanks

Mac,

Thanks for the additional images.  I would start looking on eBay for the rear sight.  It should be as in the attached photos.  It does not need to be in perfect condition since the barrel bluingIMG_1176.JPGImage EnlargerRS.JPGImage Enlarger is worn.

Hello Jason,

Yes I did receive your two emails and the photos and you should have a reply from me by now.  I had partial info on the sporting rifle but the SCR was a new entry for my data.  Thanks so much for the effort.  Let me know if you have any further questions and  I will be happy to answer them.  IF I can.

All the best

Michael

Here is my 1912 Model 1892 SRC in 38WCF, s/n 654688. I know the stock carving kills collector value, but it is well done and probably as old as the gun itself. I don't mind it myself. I've always liked the 92s, and this was cheaper than a Rossi. The only thing odd is it looks like someone painted the barrel bands after the bluing wore off. It flakes easily and I'll probably remove it at some point.

J B-

I like the carbine, I even like the carving. Looks like the barrel has been replaced. Have you had an opportunity to shoot it?

Thanks. I did buy a box of ammo at the show and have put only 10 rounds through because it's too cold for me to do much more here in the northeast and I just got this in December. It seemed to shoot fine. I have reloading components already as the ammo is scarce here and no one will ship to my state. I'm so looking forward to spring!

Thanks JB.  Your rifle was manufactured during 1912 and except for the carving and painted barrel bands is all original.  The carver did a pretty nice job.  Certainly better than most home grown examples I have seen.

At a gun show in San Antonio.  I see a Model 1892 15” trapper in .38 with full nickel.  SN 52780.  Standard carbine sights but the rear ladder carbine was replaced.  Cody letter dated Nov 2019 shows received 12/23/1895 and shipped 12/24/1895.  Confirms 38 caliber, 15” and full nickel.  I will post photos once I get off my mobile device.  The face of the muzzle has issues in that the sides are really thin and somewhat distorted while the top and bottom are noticeably thicker.  I’m not a nickel expert but it just doesn’t look like what I’d expect but, again, will defer to the judgment once I can post photos.  Stock was sanded and cleaned.  Asking price is $3,500.  Greg

Did you check the serial # ?  It appears that all of the nickel is gone.

Yes, I looked at the SN on the trapper.  It was shallow and faded yet the markings elsewhere were so much more crisp.  I guess some of that is explained by carry wear but overall the carbine just didn't look right. Also forgot to mention that the seller told me it came with a tang sight, which he removed and then installed the rear sight (which is how I knew it was a replacement).  Greg

Sorry, I looked at your post again and I realized you had given us the serial # but no picture showing it.  I like to make sure a gun with these features is really the one in the letter.  Can you find nickel in any of the well protected areas?  Usually there will be some somewhere.

Are you seeking information on any Winchester 1892 / 92 riffles folks such as myself own?

Thanks,
