It appears that 1892’s commonly bear their model markings as the first line on the top tang and crosswise just behind the hammer.  I’ve seen one with the model marking on both tang and barrel.  I have a 24″ octagonal barreled rifle in 25-20 from the middle of first year production which has no model mark at all.  Is this common or unusual?  Did this happen only in early production?

Hello Richard,

I have looked at just over 17,000 Model 1892/92 rifles while working on a survey of the model.  ALL first year guns should be stamped with a “Type 1” tang stamp as shown.

Individual rifles with the model designation on both the tang and the barrel can be found in the SN 935000 to 965000 range.  Rifles with the small “MOD 1892” stamp transverse to the tang are in the SN 476000 to 500000 range.

What is the serial number of your rifle?  The first 25-20 WCF caliber Model 1892 was not produced until 1895 in the SN 40000 range.  So something does not match up for your rifle.  You can send me images at [email protected]    Iwill be happy to take a look and try to sort things out  for you.

Michael
