Hey y’all-

Got an odd one here; the rifle is a Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine mnf in 1909. The barrel is marked "The New Daisy Carbine".

Evidently Winchester barrel stamped an unknown number of these and shipped them to The Lassiter & Lassiter Company in Australia sometime in the early 1900’s.

That is all I know or can find. Any additional info would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Steven

Hello Steven,

Winchester was marking and shipping Model 1892’s with the New Daisy wording almost from the beginning of production. Sporting Rifles were stamped "THE NEW DAISY RIFLE."

There were also Model 1892’s with "The Stinger" stamp complete with a hornet sent to Australia.

Could I please get some photos of the rifle, the stamped writing on it, the full SN and the DAISY stamp so I can enter it into a research survey I am working on?

I appreciate the help
Michael

Thanks- I had heard about the ‘Stinger’ w/ the Hornet.

What, if any additional value, (monetary / collectable), would these barrel stamps add to the rifles?

PM me an e-mail address & I’ll shoot you some pics-

Here is My 1885 32 WCF Low Wall, living in Brisbane this rifle is special to me,"THE STINGER" is the merchant mark for Perry Brothers an old retail company from Brisbane Queensland Australia an importer of Winchester rifles I have kept it as original as I could, it had been abused and neglected but i wanted to bring her back to life. I had it relined back to 32-20 and the stock was only sanded in the grip as it had some rough crosshatches applied on the grip area,I also gave it a light coat of true oil but refrained from rebluing it,she now shoots 1/2 groups at 50 meters

I believe that the correct name of the importer for the "DAISY" marked Winchesters was "F. Lasseter & Co., George St. Sydney Australia".

Thus far, I have surveyed 500+ Model 1885 rifles that were "DAISY" marked and exported to F. Lasseter & Co., and nearly the same number of the "THE STINGER" marked rifles that were exported to the Perry Bros. in Brisbane, Australia.

Export to both of those Australian companies began in the late 1880s, and lasted at least up to WW I.

The latest Stinger marked Model 1892’s I have are one in 1914 and one in 1919. The latest Daisy marked gun is 1913.
