This is a refinished Tigre carbine made in Spain between 1923 and 1937. It is a copy of the Winchester Model 1892 in .44-40. This gun has both metal and stocks refinished, but it is mechanically fine with a like-new bore. All parts are original to the gun, as there are assembly numbers on many parts. The butt stock has a "1" stamped on the left side near the butt plate. It shoots very well, and would make an ideal Cowboy Action rifle with its 22" barrel and good sights, priced considerably below what a Winchester saddle ring carbine would cost. It has a 27xxx serial number. The following is the result of a little research: "...The first models were produced by Garate y Anitua in 1915, but production was presumably interrupted by the war. The company began to market the first Tigre rifles in 1923. El Tigre rifles were chambered for the Winchester .44 WCF or .44-40 cartridge (known in Spain as the .44 largo) and had a 22 inch round barrel. The stock was of Spanish walnut with a 12 3/4" Length of Pull and a carbine butt plate with a trap fitted for storage of a jointed cleaning rod in the butt. A drift-adjusted blade front site was fitted in a 3/8” dove tail. A military tangent leaf rear sight was fitted in a larger than 3/8” dove tail, similar to those on the Mauser 1893 rifle and sighted to 1000 meters. The Tigre was made for both Civilian and Police use, but apart from its emergency use during the Spanish Civil War it was never issued as a military weapon. Over one million were eventually produced for private sale, forest rangers, and for police, prison or private security guards who needed a compact but long-ranged weapon for use in confined spaces (e.g. the Railway division of the Guardia Civil). Many were also exported to Latin American police agencies or prisons. The Tigre was replaced in service starting in the 1940s. Large numbers were exported as surplus to the U.S. in the 1950s and 1960s..."

We will consider trade for U.S. gold and silver coins at spot value, and will take VISA or MasterCard for an additional 4% fee. Or, you can just make an offer!
