Model 1892 Repeating Rifle

This new Winchester model was the same basic design as the Model 1886 and incorporated most of the special features of its action, including the double locking system.

Some of the mechanism was simplified and the component parts were scaled down in size to handle the smaller calibers. This popular rifle was first listed in the July 1892 catalog, and factory records show the first rifle delivered to warehouse on May 3, 1892.

The Model 1892, like its predecessor the 1873, was immensely popular for many years in Australia and the Far East. In South America, the shorter barreled rifles and carbines in the 44-40 Winchester caliber far exceeded all other models in use.

The Model 1892 was the second Winchester to pass the 1,000,000 mark. The millionth Model 92 rifle was engraved and presented to the then-US Secretary of War, Patrick Hurley, on December 17, 1932. A Model 92 carbine was carried by Admiral Robert Peary on his trips to the North Pole.

Our Winchester Model 1892 stocks are intended ONLY for early original firearms, manufactured through 1932 (rifle models) and 1941 (carbine models). They are not correct for recently manufactured reproduced or re-introduced models. Despite rumors and claims to the contrary, these later models are not exact reproductions of early original Winchesters.

Winchester 1892 Rifle Forearm

 

These rifles were furnished with either round or octagonal barrels, in both small and large calibers. Please select the proper barrel type and caliber. 

Takedown forearms: Takedown forearms are the same as standard rifle forearms with the exception of a slightly enlarged magazine tube hole at the rear. This is to allow clearance for the sleeve of the takedown assembly. Standard and takedown rifle forearms are identical in all other respects, including length.

We manufacture only standard rifle forearms, however, a standard rifle forearm may be customer-modified to accept the sleeve of the takedown assembly by increasing the hole diameter using a Dremel-type of rotary tool, or even a very sharp, small knife blade. Very little increase in hole diameter is needed and is not visible once the forearm is installed.
