According to the research done by John Hawk in 2003, the earliest carbine is #10537.  It was a 15″ gun in .44 caliber.  Date in warehouse,   4/6/93.

Ahh I see. Well done Tony, a bloody rare trapper. Last one I saw marked ‘The Stinger’ had been touched up on the barrel/mag with cold blue and went through Rollys for a fair bit more than that!

I do not have any of the Model 1892 statistics… Michael (2bit) is your man.  I am working on putting together a breakdown of all the known Single Shots that were exported to Australia.

$1395!  

I suppose that around $2150 in Australian dollars but still.

Does Australia have the same special rules as the U.S. does on a 15 inch barreled carbine?

Similar it varies from state to state, some you can have down to 12″ others has to be 16”, in my state can be held as a collector only.

and it was the other way round US $900

Tony R. 

Numbers go far beyond your #77768.  According to John’s research, if I counted correctly,  there are 143 Stingers.   The last one on his list is #368776.  All appear to be .44 caliber with 15″ barrels.   There is one exception with a 14″ barrel.  There is also one “Daisy” listed.

Thats great information, Daisy trappers are scarce, but the stingers not as much. more Perry bros Winchesters in all models are found compared to Daisy’s.

thanks for the info, as a side note,  15” low wall Carbines,, which will letter Baby in the records if shipped to Lassetter Sydney, have never been  found with the mark. Ponys have been noted in the records also , but none is yet to surface

Interestingly, the total number of Single Shots I have verified thus far that were shipped to F. Lassetter & Co. is quite substantial (842), and it was not that much smaller in number than those shipped to the Perry Brothers Ltd (1,007).  Then there were those Winchesters that were exported to Jame Rosier, and those to the Hahnsdorf Rifle club.
