Hello,

New member and I have concerns about the serial on a recently purchased 1892. The layout and font do not look like what I’m used to seeing. I haven’t tried to “reveal” anymore of it yet, but I do plan to try.

 

Is there a standard layout, font style, and font size used for early 1892 rifles?

Your not going to find a number stamp set commercially made that matches what Winchester used since they made all the stamps themselves. Their engravers made them in house. Guys that do restorations have to have the stamps made using the a good quality example that matches the era of the gun they need it for.

Hello Corey,

The style of font, size, and to a small extent, the exact location all changed during the production history of the Model 1892 rifles.  Your SN 95406 is correct for it number range.  You can compare it to SN 95409 that I have an image of in my survey files.

Thanks for all of the replies.

I’m trying to make this into a working example and I don’t want the s/n to lost in the mix.
