c1918 Antique WINCHESTER Model 1892 Lever Action .25-20 SADDLE RING CARBINE
Iconic Wild West Cowboy Repeating Rifle!
Here we present an antique Winchester 1892 Lever Action Rifle in .25-20 WCF, made in 1892 in New Haven, Connecticut. Another fantastic design from the mind of John Moses Browning, the 1892 was made to replace the venerable and iconic 1873 and featured its pistol caliber chamberings. The result was a trim and light rifle that was an immediate hit and stayed in production from1892 through 1938 and produced upwards to 1,000,000 rifles. Carbines such as this one continued production through 1941. The Model 1892 was first chambered in .44-40 cartridges, and in 1895 the .25-20 emerged. 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.
The overall condition is very good. Original finish/patina. Robust, smooth action. Reflective bore with strong rifling. The stock is solid. “AE” is hand carved into the left side of the forearm. Here is a nice antique Winchester in a great caliber!
