Anyone else have one like this? Or is it a "Frankenchester"?

I found this little 92 at my second POMONA SHOW in Nov of 94.  I am still not sure if I have a jewel or redone-refurbished piece.  I am sure, that it is sttill one of my favorites.  Your opinions will be welcome.  Serial #763779 which dates the receiver to 1914 and the barrel has a ’31 date. Thanks,  RDB

Maybe it was rebarreled at the factory (no mail-order brl mark), but that doesn’t make it a transfreak.

Rodger,

Due to the lack of factory records, almost anything is possible.  That stated, most potential buyers will simply look at it as a rebarreled Model 1892.

Thanks for your input.  I thought that might be the case.  Not a big deal.  I forgot to mention that, the forend wood, on the ridge, where it fits into and against the receiver, is stamped “EX. LT.”.  It is so lightly stamped that I was unable to get it photographed.  The rifle could pass as a Model 53 solid frame with a rifle butt.  I may classify it as a “One of a kind”!  Laugh RDB
