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

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

Thanks, Ted

  

Good morning Ted,

I am now up to 17,000 rifles and just 16 have been found with the rod in butt option.

Interesting information… The number of Model 1894 rifles I have surveyed that were equipped with a Trap Door butt plate is approximately the same at (20).

Hello, all.  Just found this thread a couple of minutes ago. Just wanted to make sure it was still active.  If so, I have a rifle to add to the list.  Thanks.

This would be a rifle and not a carbine.

Thanks.  Not really familiar with the terminology.

**EDIT**  Cannot edit the original post (but obviously could do this one).

Paul,

That is a sporting rifle configuration.  The octagon barrel rifles were the most common style produced.  Based on the SN it was manufactured during 1892.  Thanks for the data.  If you have problems with the images send them to my email at [email protected]

Let’s just say that my collection of hen’s teeth may be larger!  When  I get a few minutes I will do a search of my data and see what the actual number may be that I have seen.  There was one that just sold at Amoskeag this past weekend.  https://www.proxibid.com/Winchester-Special-Order-Model-1892-Saddle-Ring-Carbine/lotInformation/72598210

Of the 17,500 rifles I have seen there were only 8 pistol grip carbines and 2 of those were checkered.  These will definitely rate as rare.

Welcome,

As a guest you can not upload images to the forum.  But please send them to my email at [email protected]  Which of the two proof stamps is identical to your rifle?
