1912 WINCHESTER Model 1892 Lever Action .44-40 WCF C&R Repeating CARBINE
Pre-WORLD WAR I Era Iconic Lever Action Made in 1912
Here we present a C&R Winchester Model 1892 Lever Action Saddle Ring Carbine, chambered in .44-40 WCF, made in 1912 in New Haven, Connecticut. Another fantastic design from the mind of John Moses Browning, the 1892 was made to replace the venerable and iconic Model 1873 and featured its pistol caliber chamberings. The result was a trim and light rifle that was an immediate hit and stayed in production for almost 50 years. Many gun owners favored Winchester rifles for their ability to fire the same ammunition as their pistols, meaning that a cowboy, trapper or stagecoach defender could take along his trusty rifle and pistol sidearm with only one supply of ammo!
The Model 1892, like many other Winchester rifles, made a name for themselves in many notable Hollywood productions. She served as the firearm of choice to “The Rifleman” with actor Chuck Connors and was held in high regard by characters as portrayed by western star John Wayne. Winchester actually developed a 100th Anniversary John Wayne Commemorative Model 1892 Carbine as a collectible piece to the public.
This rifle features a 20-inch round barrel chambered in .44 WCF, which would have made in a great companion to a revolver in the same caliber. “JOE BAZAN” is hand carved into the right buttstock. A later Marbles rear sight has been installed.
The overall condition is good. The action is strong. Bright bore throughout with nice rifling. The stock shows quite a bit of wear and remains solid. A very well-loved Winchester carbine in the classic .44-40.
