Would a 1908 model 92 have a nickel steel barrel?

Doyle,

If it is a 1908 production gun, it is a Model “1892”. 

A Nickel Steel barrel was provided when somebody special ordered a Model 1892 specifically made for Winchester’s High Velocity (WHV) cartridge.  They are relatively rare.

Hello Doyle,

Can you send me some photos of the rifle, the serial number, and details of the stamped writing on the gun?  I should be able to tell you if the barrel is original or not.  As Bert mentioned they are relatively rare on the Model 1892 rifles.  [email protected]

Maybe this will help.  Here are a couple of pictures of the “Nickel Steel” stamps on my 1892 25/20’s.  Round barrel serial #400784.  Octagon Barrel serial  #623492.  You may notice the different rear sight dovetail locations.  The round barrel take-down is a 22″ short rifle and has the shorter fore end wood.   RDB
