I am looking at an 1892 Src in 44-40 ser# 381372. What do you guys think it’s worth? I would like to make an informed descision, I am new to Winchester collecting and would appreciate a experienced opinion. Also I am unable to handle it just have a few pictures to go by. 

Thanks,
Dennis

The photographs you provided suggest that this carbine has been reblued and the wood refinished which then means it has limited value.

Purchased a reblued and refinished Winchester is a poor way to start Winchester collecting.  If you were looking for a shooter, that’s a different matter.  But, you mentioned collecting.  It looks like the tag on the carbine is three-thousand, four-hundred and something?  If so, it is horrifically overpriced.

The forearm barrel band screw is put in on the wrong side. It should be on the left side, not the right.

Maybe it’s pesos.

Shop Gun Broker & Guns International, even though every gun you see there will also be overpriced.

I sure hope it’s three hundred forty something.

Even I would endorse purchasing that carbine at that price – even $349 would be ok.  And as Clarence suggests, it would be even better were it pesos.  345 pesos!  Yes.

Thanks guys that’s exactly the kind of feed back I was looking for. I failed to mention I am from Canada and it’s priced in Canadian dollars. It is on consignment and they are taking offers. Thanks again for the help.

What DuckBlind has done is as unusual as it is smart–he asked for an opinion BEFORE he bought it!  Time & again on this forum & others, such questions are asked AFTER the bad deal has already been made, the victim of that bad deal evidently seeking validation that he “did good”…when he did not.  Why seek an opinion when it’s too late to do anything about it?

Rare that a consignment gun isn’t overpriced.  The owner usually asks top retail price, then the dealer adds his own cut on top of that.
