Michael,

I have a '92 that you might not have in your survey. It is a standard sporting rifle with the following information.

Serial # 624406 - 1911, I think.

24" octagon barrel

crescent butt plate on a straight stock

25-20 WCF caliber

caliber markings are on the left side of the barrel

Winchester proof marks in line on the top of both the barrel and receiver

Type 3 barrel address & Type 3 upper tang stamp

The hammer does not have the widows peak. It is checkered with the double line at the bottom.

It has no special order features and as far as I know it is all original but it's serial number does not fall in the available warehouse record range at Cody so I cannot be sure. I do enjoy shooting it.

I hope this helps with your survey,

Have a great day,

Glenn

    

Good morning Glenn,

Thanks for taking the time to include this information for the survey.  I had some information for that rifle from when I saw it listed on Gunbroker back in 2012 out of Rockford, Illinois.  Is that where you got it from?  The serial number corresponds to production from 1911.

Michael,

Yes, I traded for it with a local dealer here in Rockford. I did not think it was that long ago. Oh well time flies when your having fun. It is a great little shooter with a very fine bore.

Hello Scott,

Thanks for the information on your SRC.  A couple of questions for you.  Does the top line of the tang stamp show the Model as 1892 or just 92?  Yo ulist the butt plate as a "crescent" style.  Is it a standard carbine butt plate?

Thanks 

Michael

Hi Michael, it has the model 1892 stamped on the tang.  It also has the carbine buttstock not crescent.

Can you ID the rear sight?
