    Winchester Model 1892 Lever Action .44-40 Rifles

    RiflesLever ActionUsed£ 2,250

    This is a very good Winchester model 1892 in 44/40 calibre.

    The Winchester Model 1892 was a lever-action repeating rifle designed by John Browning as a smaller, lighter version of his large-frame Model 1886, and which replaced the Model 1873 as the company's lever-action for pistol-calibre rounds such as the .44-40
    When asked by Winchester to design an improved lever action to compete with a recent Marlin offering, John Browning said he would have the prototype completed in under a month or it would be free. Within 2 weeks, Browning had a functioning prototype of the 92. for the rifle vary and some are custom-chambered. The original rounds were the .32-20, .38-40, and .44-40 Winchester centrefire rounds, followed in 1895 by the new .25-20
    This particular rifle has a 26” barrel , good mechanics and excellent bore, ideal for the Cowboy shooter who would prefer a lighter rifle than a large frame Winchester.
    This rifle was recently proofed but given the venerable age of the rifle I elected to black powder proof which will be fine for Cowboy loads. The serial number reveals that the rifle was manufactured in 1894.
    The original finish has faded but to an even attractive tone and there is no pitting to the barrel either externally or internally. The stock is in very good condition with no major issues. A decent and historical rifle that covers practical shooting and an iconic investment.
    This is a Section 1 firearm and will require a Firearms Certificate to purchase. I will store at no charge for variations to be applied for.
    See this and other interesting rifles at the Northern Shooting Show Harrogate May 11th and 12th.
