I am looking at a 1892 Winchester Trapper with a 14″ barrel in 32 Winchester Center Fire.  I am awaiting the confirmation of configuration from the Cody Museum. My question is the crown at the muzzle.  By the serial numbers, this rifle appears to date to 1916.  Were the barrels of the muzzles in the 1892’s, specifically in a 14″ trapper crowned?

I believe that Winchester crowned all Carbine barrels regardless of the length.

There are no factory records that will enable one to determine configuration of a M1892 made in 1916. Polishing Room Records indicating the date your gun was serialized do exist

All carbine muzzles were crowned, no matter what caliber or barrel length.

Hello,

I have been in Africa for a few weeks and have just returned to Michigan for a few more weeks.  If you will send me a series of images of the rifle I will be happy to advise.  My email is [email protected]
