I don’t think I’ve posted this one before.  It’s an example of what I would purchase over 30 years ago when my wages were much more dire.  Honest and antique, but lacking in condition.  I still like it as I haven’t parted with it.3F8A4E83-A67F-4796-BC50-0DFA3E27924A.jpegImage Enlarger26F1B1B4-CD0B-4C05-A349-F12FF7C97C61.jpegImage Enlarger020C73E1-8B74-4BEB-8029-6EF9024F084F.jpegImage Enlarger60AF4A53-04BA-4509-8148-012997F769D0.jpegImage Enlarger

Well, how can you take 12 photographs all at once, nothing differs in my photographic technique, and it accepts those 4 and rejects the other 8 as it says the file size is too large?????????

lan – this has been discussed on the Forum before – the max size is 3MB. You will have to crop/reduce the size of the photos which are not accepted. As far as I know, you can only reduce them on the device which originally took the photo.

I’ll try and figure that out.  Any idea what determines file size when all I do is snap a photograph and change none of the variables as I lack that ability to do so?

I think it is too much background – that is why you have to crop it down/reduce the size. I have had the same thing happen – take 6 photos and 4 will go thru and 2 will not – you just need to reduce the ones which will not go and, I have only been able to do so if I use the same device originally used.

A forum post has a max file size it will take.  That means the total of all pictures together can not exceed that number.  If they do you have to separate them into several posts or reduce the file size of each one.  Cropping will do this too.

If you use an I phone to take the pictures you can email them to your computer or I pad.  When doing this it will ask which file size you want. I believe it gives you 3 choices?   I always send the largest file I can.  Almost every computer or I pad comes with some sort of Picture Editor that will save the picture at a lesser file size.  In my case I do a file save as and select the size.  Now you end up with 2 pictures.  The original and the resized one.  The one you resize can’t have the exact same name so I add a letter to the end of the file name.

I got them sized to the proper size and have since posted all photographs to this thread.  Let’s see if I can recall how to do this NEXT time.

Well, I thought that way about 1992 when I bought it.  I’m guessing I paid $500 or $750 for it then.  No regrets and I hold onto it still, although, today, I gravitate towards Winchester rifles with condition or features.

Although that’s a conundrum these days.  At least this is an HONEST rifle.  As one will quickly learn on this forum, that with condition and/or dripping with features isn’t always what it seems.

I like the rifle as well.  A big part of this is, the rifle is, what it seems.  No doubt.  That means plenty – especially these days.

Amen!  That’s a major reason why I don’t buy too many Winchesters anymore, and, when I do, they are from a reliable source.  Too much tomfoolery otherwise…

Back in the early 1990s, when I bought this rifle, this was much less prevalent.

Tom,

Thank you for stating this.  Sometimes I think of Burt and how he doesn’t mess around with junk, and think I should get rid of it.  But then I realize how little I have into it and it was bought in a time when the fleecers weren’t so blatant and common, and so I keep it.

If it was offered to me today, I wouldn’t buy it, as I like condition more than “volume”, but, then again, I don’t buy even condition now, unless it’s from a collection like Burt’s, where the history is known.

That’s where the Winchester 1892 featured in the February 2023 calendar came from—a known collection.

I think everyone should collect what they like but I also think you will be best served by buying guns that are original and correct – if it isn’t right, let somebody else have it. If for no other reason, someday most will want to part with their beloved Winchesters and guns that are right always have and always will have a market. When I decided to sell the vast majority of my guns they were easy to sell and I know they went to good homes, many went to WACA members. I kept one of each model made in the 19th century and I am content to stick with that. If I make it another couple of years I will be 75 and may part with some or all of the rest of them at that time – that is something each of us probably needs to think about. Personally, I did not not want my wife to have to deal with 60 old Winchester levers. And, compared to guys like Big larry and Henry Mero, I had a small collection. I too like the old 86 which lan used to start this thread and I would never consider it junk because as others have noted it is a righteous gun. lan is right about the increase in guns which have been messed with but they have always been around. Those who follow this Forum are fortunate to have so many knowledgeable and seasoned experts who are willing to evaluate and comment on guns which time after time keeps collectors from buying a bad gun. We all know there are lots of these bad guns going into collections on a regular basis, from both auctions and from many of the big dealers.

Burt to all that you said I say Here Here. There are to many people out there that are only looking for the $$$$. Couple of them belong to this affiliation in fact, and would pick your pocket clean. I am glad I joined this group and am happy for all the input when asked, I think all of us are. I do feel lucky as I have stated before, as my son has a genuine interest in the field of collecting firearms. I will give him all I have to allow this small collection to build. Hell, if I’m dead and gone and he sells, well you get the picture. But until then I will keep looking and asking questions of people smarter than I.
