From the early to mid 1920's carbine production made up the majority of Model 92 production as opposed to the early decades of Production where sporting rifles were more popular.  This may account for why you are seeing more late 44 WCF SRC's compared to the earlier, especially pre 1898 examples. 

This appears to be, in my opinion, the most logical explanation.

While not as nice as the special order antique M1892, and that is certainly a very rare and beautiful rifle, I have, in my collection, a fairly scarce, M1892 circa 1911, in 44 WCF , in takedown style. Rifle is probably 90% with some receiver flaking. Minty bore too. Lots of color left in this old gal.  Big Larry

Big Larry,

That's a real beauty as well.  It looks to have very nice wood, and lots of blue.

It is a very nice rifle. Bought it at a Reno Gun Show from a Forum member.   Thanks, Big Larry
