stinger-mark-06.jpgImage Enlarger06-st.jpgImage EnlargerThe STINGER marked winchesters are not uncommon in Australia but  in 45yrs of collecting this is the first 1906, i have ever seen or heard about.

Came into my  LGS, from a deceased estate this week.

73s and 92s and the odd 94 do pop up quiet often, but this little pump is a real gem.

For those of you that dont know about the Aust, marked winchesters, The Stinger was for the Brisbane store of Perry Bros

Nice find Tony, I have seen one other very rough 1906 also STINGER marked. The odd 1885 pop up STINGER marked too. 

This is my little 04 single shot .22 STINGER. Cost me the price of the permit last year.

Nice! I love having Winchesters with history, especially Australian history!

For those of you who are wondering, it was Winchester that marked (stamped) the barrels with the subject markings.

In my survey of the Single Shot model (M1885), I have thus far documented (1,006) rifles that were marked with “THE STINGER” and shipped to the Perry Brothers Ltd. in Australia.  The majority were made for the 32 W.C.F. and 44 W.C.F. cartridges.

I do have it listed in my research survey.  It is the 1st of 44 low-wall rifles that I have documented thus far that were shipped to Order # 48497 on June 2nd, 1906.  I suspect that I will eventually find (6) more rifles on that same order.

Them Aussie possums ain’t to be messed with!  But why, being home to so many unique critters found no where else in the world, did this company choose a common generic wasp as their logo?  Rather than, for ex., a Tasmanian Devil, or the world’s most deadly snake, the Taipan?

Good question,  then again, why did F. LASSETTER in Sydney choose THE DAISY RIFLE to be marked on their Winchesters. Ill see what i can find out. For those interrested photos of the Perry Bros and Lassetter store.PERRY-BROS-1906.jpgImage EnlargerLassetter2.jpgImage Enlarger

Tony,

Based on my research, F. Lassetter & Co. requested several different barrel markings as follows;

“THE DAISY RIFLE”

“THE DAISY SINGLE SHOT RIFLE”

“THE DAISY”

“THE BABY”

“THE NEW DAISY RIFLE”

Currently I have (840) confirmed “DAISY” marked Single Shot rifles & carbines documented in my research survey.  I am hoping to someday find examples of each of the various marking types.

Bert i have seen and owned most of the marked daisy’s. but what I can tell you is NONE of the low wall carbines sent to lassetter were ever marked BABY. but they  all letter BABY in the archive letters. They just never got marked which is a shame.

Tony,

Very interesting!  I had always (mistakenly) assumed that Winchester did mark them with “THE BABY”.  The ledger record entries for at least 3-dozen Lightweight Carbines most certainly imply that they were stamped with that marking.

Do you have pictures of the other Daisy marking types I mentioned?
