I’ve seen your post on the GB forum, and I thought I could just post there since I’m a listed guy on GB…..but the forum is a different thing.  Anyway, this summer I picked up a 1892 in 32WCF. The S\N indicates it was built in 1911. (I don’t think it had seen a cleaning since 1912!!)  I cleaned it all up ….which took a few days and found it to be a great little shooter with 115gr lead and RL7 powder.

 

Anyway, here’s a few pic’s for your survey. The barrel is 34″. I don’t know if the front site is factory or not.  I do have the rear site and I know it’s factory…..but I removed it since installing a tang peep sight. 

 

Some previous owner had drilled and tapped the barrel right above the 32WCF on the barrel. I just used some mild steel threaded and loctite to install a plug. The plug can be removed, but I didn’t want to spend the $$$ on a gunsmith repair. The action is buttery smooth and locks up tight. I just wish it could talk and tell stories that are 108 years old!!

 

If you want
eed additional information……just post.

 

Dave

Hello Dave,

I need the full serial number so that I can add the rifle into my survey.  Is the barrel really 34 inches or that a typo instead of 24?

Thanks 

Michael

Michael, 

The barrel is actually 24″ as you stated. Fat fingers will do that. The S\N is 615,202. 

 

I hope this helps.

Thanks so much Dave,

I doubt that the front sight is original to the gun based on all of the indentations around it’s base.  Most likely those occurred when the original sight was removed and this one installed and adjusted.  Based on the SN the rifle was manufactured during 1911.

I guess I should add my 92’s to your list also. I have one with a stainless 1/2 oct barrel. Also sold a 61 back in July that was about 95%. I didn’t know about this site then. I have one more 61 in the safe. Also what looks like an unfired 65 in 32-20

Good morning Old Logger,

I would love to add the 1892’s and the Model 61 in the surveys I am conducting.  Can you please send me photos of them or post them here?

Thanks so much on the information on your rifle.  It is a new one for the survey.  The serial number corresponds to production from 1919.  Could I ask for you to send me photos of the stamped writing on the barrel and the upper tang to my email at [email protected]

Happy New Year

Michael

Michael,

I did not see your request for photos prior to leaving the location of the rifle.  I will get photos the next time I visit.

Thank you for the information on year of manufacture.

Thanks Erin,

Yours in a large group of 462 takedown rifles in either 38 or 44 WCF which were made.  This was the first large group of takedowns for the Model 1892.  There are a handful of earlier guns made with that option.  I own SN 16566 which is an OB deluxe grade and engraved.  Does the barrel address on yours match the photo?
