Anybody here remember seeing a Winchester with a Brazilian logo or stamp burned into the side of the stock? If memory serves me right I think it was Rosetti or Rosati. I had one years ago, that I wound up trading, and a friend asked about it, and I’m trying to remember, the name of it. I do remember reading about another one from a couple of Winchester guys who dealt in some nice collectables, and later I found out that one of the two Gentleman passed, and now I can’t remember the other ones name either. It sucks getting old! Thanks.

Hello Tony,

The rifles you are referring to were actually used in Argentina not Brazil.  Both are countries in the South American continent but Spanish is spoken in Argentina and Portuguese is the language of Brazil. 

In my survey of the Model 1892 rifles I have found 9 examples with this marking.  These are all 44 WCF SRC’s and 8 of the 9 are in the SN range 320500 to 358075 corresponding to 1905 and 1906 production.  One additional rifle is SN 894689 from 1920.  The 8 rifles in the 1905 and 1906 range are only marked on the receivers as shown in the attached photos.  The 1920 production gun is only marked on the wooden butt stock as shown.  I have not done any in depth research into the provenance of the marking.

Tony,

If you come up with any details on one of these rifles please do pass it along to me so I can add it into the survey.
