Winchester model 1892, #332590, SRC in the desirable .44 WCF. mfg. 1906, 20 inch barrel sent to Carlos Rosetti, Buenos Aires Argentina @ 526 Rivadavia est; 1857 through 1930’s and closed in the early 1960’s. We’ve seen these in the past and there interesting in the fact that there still around and in decent condition. The Bore is very good on it. Some discoloration on the front muzzle in front of the sight and some pitting was cleaned up before I received it years ago. Some nice case colors on the lever and in the protected areas as usual. I can’t help but like the “HALO” mark from the Saddle Ring.

Nice carbine! I also love that butterfly effect of the saddle ring that has been on there for a long time.

Hello Anttonio,

That is definitely one of the nice Rasetti marked carbines I have seen.  With the exception of the corrosion at the muzzle.  I have found 9 additional rifles with the same marking on the receiver.  All of them are in the 321676 to 339696 from 1905 and 1906 time frame.  Can you please post an additional image of htte barrel address stamp found in front of the rear sight?  Where is this rifle located?  Still in Argentina?

Is a portion of your post missing to the right of the images?

Michael, For some reason that pic didn’t go through originally, I apologize. I own this rifle currently. The last one I saw was on Trapadera’s old web sight that sold at that time a little over $3000.00 if I remember correctly. It’s a shame the front of the muzzle has that pitting on it as it’s worse on the left front side of the muzzle. The Bore is extremely nice on it. I mainly posted it for your survey as I’m trying to update some Winchesters, in my Collection, or possession for others to help with the surveys and also share to try to add to this great forum for all the invested time and work that goes into the survey’s that many of you are conducting. We all benefit from it and learn so much.Smile

Thanks,

Anthony

Anthony,

The Tapaderas rifle was SN  335231 but I do not have any saved images of the rifle or its final sales price.  It is interesting to me that there appears to be a very limited time period in which the rifle were ordered by the store for resale.

Michael,

Jim Grueter,(not sure of spelling), moved to Winchester, Idaho if I’m not mistaken and I’m wondering if he is ever on here? He’s the gentleman everyone would buy his N-35 Stain that was very close to Winchester’s original Finish. Those two gent’s at Trapadera’s we’re fun to deal with and talk to. Been awhile as my old memory is fading. Wish I had more info. and or pics.

Jim Grueter and Steve Bly.  Sadly, Steve passed away more than 10-years ago, and Jim went into full retirement mode about 3-years ago.  Jim has been located in Winchester ID for a long time now.  I last spoke with him in the Spring of 2022.

I remember Tapaderas Winchesters, and both Jim and Steve from Cody shows. I discovered them fairly late in the game, but thought they were a good source of decent Winchesters, and honest to deal with.  I bought a decent 1892 SRC in 44WCF from Steve at perhaps his last Cody show (still have it, and a CFM letter). I recall that he was ill, and I heard of his passing not long afterward.  I continued to check the website on occasion until it disappeared.  Hope Jim is enjoying his retirement.

Bert and Nevada Paul,

Thanks for resurrecting this old memory as I am starting to remember their names and them a little better. Good people all the way around.

I agree as I’m hoping Jim is enjoying his retirement.Smile

Thanks Guy’s,

Anthony

Sad news, I know the name of their company and feel sure I probably ran into them before I realized I was a Winchester collector. I know they were a class act and will be missed.

Every Winchester collector that needs a screw was effected by Jim’s retirement.
