Hmmmm, that seems odd. Wonder how many duplicates they have? They have always been very reputable in this area, and by no means am I saying they are not, just seems weird. Might have to start paying more attention to see if there are any  shenanigans  Going on……

3FE6607E-E45B-437D-BB1B-7FE6F443D6FE.jpegImage EnlargerI have a 92 src in 44wcf sn 788697 that was part of a purchase in 1915 for Argentinian police ? Re imported I believe I’m the 80’s by century.  It had been arsenal refinished unfortunately (very well done though- almost looks new) it thankfully wasn’t over buffed, markings are still good.  Ive seen these from time to time in varying condition.  The sling swivels appear to have been added in Argentina not by Winchester. 

It is obviously the one on the right. No need to salivate over the yellow boys they are reproductions 🙁

Hello Mike,

Thanks for the info on your rifle.  It is a new one for my survey.  I have found quite a few identical SRC’s that have been in Argentina.  I am sending an email with a request for more images of the stamped writing on the gun.

Hello Mike,

Are you absolutely certain that the serial number is in the 700 thousand series?  The upper tang stamp and the position of the barrel address on top of the barrel, and most likely the caliber stamp also, would be far more consistent for a gun made 300,000 rifles earlier.

Thats the number thats on it.. the barrel could be explained by Winchester using whatever parts are left in the parts bin but I wondered about the upper tang myself.  The # does correspond with the time Ive read most of these rifles were purchased but who knows

Mike that is very interesting indeed.  I doubt it was a case of old parts being used since one would assume that there would be more than just a single receiver lying in a parts bin for more than 8 years or so and if there were in fact a bin of #2 stamped receivers the entire bin would have been put into production and used up.  It makes little sense, to me, that a single receiver would be grabbed and used on its own.  I have seen several other rifles with tang stamps that are significantly out of order and will look into this in my data in more detail.

Thanks again.

Michael

Michael.

My new 1892 trapper has a 15-inch barrel in 44-40 caliber with a gum wood stock and is serial 597488.  I would love to post a photo but I cannot figure out how to do it.  I followed the instructions from this website but I do not have the button to manage any attachments, etc. and the photo/image button in the posting area does nothing.  

Best, John
