Action: Lever - Caliber: 45 Colt - Capacity: 10 - Material: Steel - Finish: Brushed Polish - Stock: Black Walnut - Sights: Brass Bead / Semi-Buckhorn - Twist: 1:26 - Barrel Length: 20 - Overall Length: 37.5 - Weight: 6 lb - It is considered by many as the smoothest most compact handiest and most beautiful lever action ever offered by Winchester. The Model 1892 (or The 92 as most of us call it) was Winchester's follow-up to the amazing Model 1886. The 86 was designed for large hunting/military calibers of the 1800s like 45-70. Soon after it's development the call went out for a new (but more compact) lever rifle suitable for pistol calibers. Soon John Moses Browning produced the Model 1892 prototype for Winchester -- and the rest is history. This Model 92 Short Rifle is in a classic round barrel configuration in two excellent calibers -- the 357 is suitable for hunting and Cowboy Action duties while the 44 Rem. Mag. makes its mark as a great caliber for hunting in brushy conditions with fast moving game. Attention to detail is something you will notice like the one-piece steel crescent buttplate just like the originals and a Marbles gold bead front sight that adds a dose of traditional class. This rifle features a convenient rear tang safety -- but don't despair companies (like Marble's) offers one made to fit should you desire to add a tang sight later. Not many firearm models today can boast of having had over one million produced. The Winchester Model 1892 very similar in construction to the Winchester Model 1886 is one of these famous lever-action rifles. It is much like a compact or carbine model of the famous 1886 and has the same dual vertical locking system for impressive strength. Many of its components have been scaled down and simplified to handle the smaller calibers and here is where this nostalgic rifle shines. It is famous for its light weight low recoil and responsive easy handling. It displays a genius of design that makes it a modern-day treasure. The Winchester Model 1892 features a beautifully finished walnut stock blued barrel and receiver finely fit with precision and pride. From year to year Winchester Repeating Arms introduces new models and versions of the Model 1892. Your dealer may have both the current model of the year and other previous year models in his or her inventory. An internet search is a key tool when locating these special rifles which are commonly made in very limited manufacturing runs.
