Congrats, looks pretty solid to me. Seems rifles see quite a bit of hard use in your country, this one looks pretty good, congrats!

The Model 1892 TD’s are my favorite take downs.  I’m guessing by what I can see of the magazine that it is a large caliber.

Curious as to why the 32-20 was the most commonly ordered in Australia when the 44-40 was by far the most popular caliber here in the U S of A.

Proberly, we dont have the wild game you have in the US. Buffalo, up in the Northern Terrorty, top end of Australia, is about it, and who would live up there infestered with Crocks.

typical winchesters , 73s , 92s, most half mags in 32

Hello Tony,

It is interesting that the caliber stamp is not visible on the top flat of the barrel?  Maybe just the angle.  Can I please get a detail photo of the tang stamp and the barrel address stamp?

Thanks

Michael

Thanks much Tony.  All the stamp styles and locations are correct for the serial number range of the rifle.

Tony and other members, I thought firearms are severely restricted or almost banned in Australia.  Yet I have seen threads such as this relating to acquisitions such as this Model 1892.  I’m curious because I’m a Californian…I think you guys can infer what that means.

Also, I like that rifle’s looks.

Bruce, only semi auto rifles are near impossible to own.and with the correct paper work, pistols are ok also.

But with pistols, impossible to carry as a side arm or even rec, shooting. contained only to pistol clubs and collecting.

I always wondered why The Winchester Book has “Daisy” included in the pages showing roll marks and such. Thought there might be a relationship with the air rifle, but couldn’t ever find any evidence. Now I know. Like we say , you learn something every day on this forum. thanks

Vince,

The “Daisy” and “Stinger” marked rifles both were importers/retailers of Winchesters into Australia.  You will occasionally find rifles with either mark on the barrel in various positions or locations.

And just to add, Daisy, was the mark of F.LASSITER Sydney

and Stinger was the mark of PERRY BRO’S Brisbane,

the marks were not only contained to lever guns, some 85’s and 22 bolt rifle suck as the 04, can be found stamped.
