I was wondering what the value of my model 92 is it has not been touched no buffing in working condition no sereal #.
If there is no serial number on the rifle it is because the bottom of the receiver has been buffed, sanded, of ground down to remove the number. The photos are quite poor and it would be much better if you could redo them outdoors in brighter light. If you can include images of the different stamped writings on the barrel and upper tang I can narrow down when it was manufactured.
If you will do that I will be glad to look them over and help.
I took some more pics but I took them on my cell phone you cant really see it in the pics on tne barrel it says manufactured by the winchester repeting arms co new haven conn u s a. And the sereal # hasnt been buffed its been stamped off and on the chamber it says 44wcf it has a R on the bottom left of the resever on the tang it says winchester model 1892 pat oct 14 1884
The stippled pattern over stamped on the serial number was done when the rifle was at some time returned to Winchester for repair and the SN was unreadable at that time. It should look similar to the image I have attached.
Does the hammer have the little dip in the pattern at the top edges like the photo below? Are there dashes before and after the lines of print on the barrel? Is there a period after 1884 on the bottom line of the tang stamp? Answers to these question will help me narrow down the possible time it was made.
The condition of the rifle is far below what collectors are looking for. As a shooter class gun it would be in the $500 range at best.
Ya there is a dip in the pattern there is lines before and after tne print on the
barrel and no there is not a date after 1884 below the print on the tang strip
Sorry there is not a dip in the pattern
Is there a period after 1884 on the bottom line of the tang stamp? Are the dashes on the barrel address straight lines or possible "Y" shaped?
There is not a period after 1884 on the bottom line of the tang strip and the lines are straight there is no y shape on the barrel
It is most likely that your rifle was manufactured some time between late 1900 and early 1902. This is the time period when the characteristics of the hammer, barrel address style and upper tang stamp all match those found on your rifle.
Thanks can you look at my remington 1858 new army revolver ?
Post the Revolver in the Remington forum but I know nothing about them. Somebody will pick it up.
