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?

I have been at this for just over 6 years now and just crossed over the 15,000 rifle mark in my database!  Thansk to everyone who has contributed and helped me.  I appreciate all the support and info.  Not sure that I will make another 15,000 rifles but I see no reason to stop now.  Now to distill it all.

Thanks

Michael

Great work Michael! 

I fully understand and appreciate the effort it takes to conduct such a survey.  As you know, I have been working on the Model 1894 survey since late 2005. I currently have (22,727) Model 1894/94s documented in the survey, and that does not include the (598) Model 55 rifles and (3,091) Model 64 rifles (all in the same serialization sequence), for a total of (26,416) guns.  I have been distilling the statistical data automatically as I enter each new S/N. If you need any tips on that aspect of the survey, please get in touch.

A question I have for you, is are you including the Model 53 and Model 65 in with your Model 92 (late production) statistics?  I would really like to discuss this with you (phone call) when it is convenient to do so.  I currently have (640) Model 65 rifles in the survey, and Kirk & I have (260) Model 53 rifles in a separate survey that were all serialized in the Model 92 S/N range. That brings the total to (900) documented “non” Model 92 serial numbers.

This may be a new one for the survey.  Barrel changed, extra holes in the receiver and appears the magazine tube was shortened.  I hope this helps.

I did see that one Kevin.  The gun is a mess.  Sanded wood.  Extra holes in the right?! side of the receiver.  N/O Bbl and a cut down magazine!  WOW!

Of the 15,000+ Model 92 rifles in your survey how many ‘rod in butt’ guns have you recorded?

Thanks, Ted
