Hi,

have come across a Winchester 92 serial number 741420. I was told it was issued in the First World War for use by the Merchant Navy. Overall the rifle looks good and appears NOT to have been refinished. Screws have sharp heads / slots, bore good, crack starting to form in stock.

Correction Title say 94 should be 92

Searching the internet it appears to be made in 1913 and show all the markings from https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/30032039 the UK imperial War Museum. IT has the N on the receiver and PW caliber 44 W.C.F. 

The owner told me it was used in WW1 and the above search seem to support this. 

Do you think it is genuine WW1 issue.

Value $$ ?

If it is a 44 W.C.F., it cannot be a Model 94.  Instead, it would be a Model 1892.  Model 1892 serial number 741420 was manufactured in December 1913.  Your pictures show a DCP marked Model 1892 SRC, which were used in WW I.

No problem.  You might find this topic interesting – https://winchestercollector.org/forum/winchester-research-survey-discussion/dcp-marked-model-1892-carbines/

I recommend reaching out to Alan, as he has been researching these particular Model 1892 Carbines for quite some time now.

I have added 741420 to my DCP survey, thank you.

 

Its quite an early serial number within the DCP marked range being from 730XXX to 792XXX.

Thanks Tony, I have this one on my data base already. Not sure where I got it from as the data base is completely anonymous.

Where is the DCP Mark stamped. ?

I’m looking at 774428 and it has a mark on the left of the barrel between 44WCF and the receiver.

just wondered if it was a British issue gun

Bert I’ve seen pictures of the gun and it looks like it’s been buffed so much that I can see the Winchester proof marks.

it’s not coming home with me !
