Is it possible that Winchester made the 1892 in stainless steel? If so how many were made in which model and caliber? Thanks for the info.

    OK now about the stainless steel 1892 Winchester rifle. The one in question has a threaded muzzle in 9/16 thread. It is threaded for a Maxim silencer. It may be a replacement barrel as it has a stamping on top with a P inside a circle. Another oval has an upside down T with a W over it. What do you know about this particular weapon? There are winchester stampings on the barrel. It is marked stainless steel on the barrel. There are black spots, like pitting on the barrel. It is in 32 WCF. The barrel length is proper for the rifle. What can you tell me??

    I recently purchased an 1892 Winchester SRC that has no visable serial number. There is no evidence that the number was removed. The caliber is 25-20. The barrel is 20" and the magazine is 10"
    Can anyone tell me what I have and the approximate value.
    Thanks Joe in Texas

    I have an 1892 winchester 44-40. It has a 20 inch barrel and the button or short magazine. My question is why was the short magazine made and is it common. Thanks

    I have a 1892 round barrel 25 20. At some time in it's life it had sling installed. It has one of those heavy duty drill in ones with the screw threads and would make a really ugly repair to fill it in. It has the bottom sling but the top is gone. I would guess they had some king of magazine mount for the front one. Any of you guys know what it might have had and maybe I can find one.

    I have a Winchester model 1892 carbine in 38-40 cal. The serial No. indicates that it was made in 1894. Since I figure that this was a black powder era would this gun be safe to shoot with modern ammo.? The rifle seems to be in pretty good shape. I know it should be checked by a smith ect. I guess my question is would it be safe to shoot it with modern ammo if it passed that test.

    The Red Book of Winchester values, 3rd edition, by Larry Shennum, and Bert Hartman. Look up the profile of Bert H, and e-mail him...he will help you out. This is the very best, and most accurate.

    Here is a link to his profile...

    Hello ithaca4me,

    If there is more you would like to know about your Model 1892 I will be glad to help. I own more than 3 dozen of these rifles and I am conducting a research survey on the model. You might want to take a look at this link which is a "Sticky" at the top of the Ask The Experts page. http://forums.GunBroker.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=606355

    I would like to add your rifle into my work if I could. What caliber is it? Is it a sporting rifle or saddle ring carbine?

    Mod1892 I do not mind if you look through my previous posts pictures of it are under berth don't mind all the little fuzziness I had just wiped it down. I will need to get one of Bert's books I guess. The only reason I was checking the manufacture date was I seen a nice colt saa bisley that is chambered in 32-20 and was made in 1910 but I guess I will have to look for one made in 1911.

    Maybe the sellers info was just a little off, might be worth checking out.

    ithaca4me,

    Thanks. I found the old thread about your rifle. I agree with your question in it about the stock being refinished. I would say yes, but would need a detail photo of each side of the upper tang and a side view of the top of the butt plate.

    here are some more pics I did have my gunsmith take it apart and clean it because it was just filthy and I am not sure if he got it back together as tight as factory but I had no idea how to take one apart to clean I know he changed the forend cap screws (not happy) so I would like to find some originals.
