Winchester Model 1892  - US CARTRIDGE CO. TEST RIFLE - 44 W.C.F. (1906)   Guns > Rifles > Winchester Rifles - Modern Lever > Other Lever > Pre-64

We are offering a VERY RARE Winchester Model 1892 chambered in 44 W.C.F. This particular rifle appears to have been a test fire gun at the U.S. Cartridge Company and is marked on the left side of the receiver “U.S.C.Co. #394-1.-9.-08.” Serial number dates this gun to a 1906 manufacture date.

24” Octagon barrel is quite attractive, retaining most of its original bluing. Bore is clean and bright with some light scattered freckling. Some loss to muzzle; scattered wear. Barrel has been drilled and tapped four times, being filled using filler screws. Adjustable rear buckhorn sight, Front blade with flip-up bigger white dot. Full magazine tube.

Receiver is very good, having the USC CO marking on left side. There are some light surface marks, minimal blue loss. Some patina to extremities. Case hardened hammer, lever turning a plum brown. Furniture is still attractive. Shoulder stock shows some wear; a couple closed cracks on bottom edge near crescent butt plate; stock remains strong. Fore-end shows some handling marks. Overall a nice set of wood.
