Thought I would post this because you don't see this very often in 1892's. From what I can tell the 1892 rifle in the gunbroker listing below has a carbine receiver that was installed at the factory with the holes plugged for the saddle ring stud. From what I can see the wear and blue color from the stud plugs/receiver show that it left the factory that way.

I owned an 1892 some time back (SN 842,765) that was 44-40, button mag, 1/2 oct bbl, and lacked proof marks on the barrel and receiver. The receiver on the rifle was drilled for the carbine saddle ring stud but was filled in by Winchester before it was blued and left the factory. The only way you could tell it was a carbine receiver was by the two visible stud holes shown on the inside of the receiver.

Anyway, thought it was something you just don't see everyday.

Chris,

I am visiting my parents in central Michigan and the owner of the gun lives about an hour south of my mom and dad. I had lunch with the owner of this rifle just a few days ago and looked at the gun in the restaurant parking lot! Nobody bothered us!!

The gun looks a bit better than the photos portray it. Too bad about the chip out of the stock too. I have found a few others and noted them in my survey.

Michael,

That's really interesting, I guess there aren't many 92's that go by that you haven't seen first Laugh . I have always found these interesting for some reason but have only seen the saddle ring stud holes plugged like that on the earlier models (with the exception of the 1886), rarely on 92's. On the 94's they usually have just a screw where the stud goes. One of the more interesting takedowns I came across in my survey left the factory as a standard carbine, was sent back and made into a semi-deluxe takedown rifle with 20" 1/2 oct bbl with half magazine.
