This is my four digit serial number 92 Winchester. It has a 24” barrel and is in .38 W.C.F.. It has been in the family for 70+ years but was kept in a gun cabinet and never shot till I inherited it. I reload for it with light loads and have shot it several times. It functions flawlessly and is accurate.

Nice rifle Jim.  Could you please post a detail image of the barrel address stamp found in front of the rear sight?

Thanks

Michael

Michael,
Here ya go. I included two of the address stamp since the lighting and cellphone images are not ideal. Please share what knowledge is gained by the address stamp. Thanks.

My guess is that he is referring to the pistol in the background of the images.

Thanks so much for the additional images.  When the 1892 was introduced the barrel address stamp found on the round barreled sporting rifle and the carbine barrels used the same die, with the “crows foot” dashes as was then currently being used on the round barrels fitted onto Model 1886 rifles.  This style was only used until approximately SN 10200 on the 1892’s.  Since round barrel sporting rifles and carbines make up a smaller percentage of the total production this is not a common address style.

I was replying to TXGunNut who mentioned the “Cute 19”. It was in the background when I photographed the barrel stamping. For those who enjoy handguns it is a Smith and Wesson Model 19-3 Combat Magnun nickel plated .357 magnum snubbie from 1975.

Yes, a very popular Smith & Wesson revolver 40 years ago. Not very practical but that didn’t seem to matter.

The “crows foot” barrel marking was also used on all of the early production Single Shot rifles with round barrels.
