Looking at a 1919 vintage Model 92 9027XX 38WCF Rifle with 20 inch octagon barrel, and a mag tube about 17 or 18 inches long with a flat plug. No tube hanger. Beveled front sight. Rear sight buckhorn type bevel appears to at the 5 inch point. Rifle has the crescent butt pad and I presume is meant to be a short rifle. Wood looks original. Fore end does not look shorter than normal. Since I’ve never seen this tube configuration thought I’d see whether anybody has an opinion if this is a legitimate rifle and not a cut down. Thanks in advance.

It didn’t look like the picture made it, so here it is 7C66F594-EF6E-4FF5-AD5D-B7FF73C18D6C.jpegImage Enlarger

The barrel and magazine tube have likely been cut.  The correct magazine tube end cap for a shorter than standard magazine length (aside from a button magazine) should look like the one below.  There should be a slot cut on the underside of the barrel for the tab on the end cap to engage the barrel.  The barrel diameter at the muzzle should fall within 0.719″ to 0.757″.   From the receiver to the center of the rear sight dovetail should be 4″.

Seller claims it’s legit, but I had doubts. So thanks for the info.

I agree Chris. Cut down barrel and tube from his description and photo.

Hello,

No doubt about the rifle having been altered.  Can I get the full serial number so that I can add the gun into my survey?

Thanks

Michael

I’d say we know the main reason we know this rifle is for sale.
