Default Model 1892 Winchester 32WCF, Question(PIC)

I have a Model 1892 Winchester that's in ok condition, but the gun is pretty old.

It says "Model 1892 Winchester, PAT Oct 14th 1884" on the tang of the rifle.

It has a 23 1/2inch barrel. And the gun is still in good firing order

And I was curious as to how much this rifle is worth? and any other info on the gun would be awesome!

I've included a pic



Thanks!

As far as worth check the auction sites to see what there going for in similar condition as yours.
As far as other information I would do a Google or Bing search.

There are some things done best in person- they usually involve food, beer, and pretty women, but will include evaluating a gun in that group.

There are major variations in the Winchester 92- for example, one of my references increases the value by 100% if it has a factory pistol grip stock.

This really deserves a look-seek by someone experienced in old Winchesters. Gun Traders Guide lists the standard Model 1892 at $1,500 for a GOOD, $2,100 for an EXCELLENT.

Thank you! I appreciate the replys.

I'm going to try and find someone that specializes in antique rifles to appraise it.

Edit: Also, do you recommend any specific auction sites?

Probably the 3 largest auction sites are gunbroker.com. auctionarms.com, and gunsamerica.com On the first 2 (you may need to register with them, not a big deal, search CLOSED AUCTION PAST 90 DAYS). See what sold, how much, what condition. Pay attention to the sold, not the "asked but had no takers". These are not that common, so doubt that you will see several hundred of them like you would a Ruger 10-22.

Hello Caleb

Your post about your Model 1892 is quite old so this is a long shot I know. I can help you with your rifle. I am a Winchester collector with 22 1892's and I am conducting a research survey on the rifle. If you will send me the full SN and detail photos of all the stamped writing on the rifle I will be able to give you a detailed description of how the gun fits in with the changes made during production. I might even be able to tell you the day it was made.

You can take the rifle to a gun show or a local used gun dealer. Ask them politely to tell you what they think it is worth but tell them first that you do not wish to sell it. Gunshow is the best bet. Many will be happy to help you and explain why this or that helps or hurts the value. I've done that many times at shows for people. Small things on the old Winchesters can make huge differences in the price.

I would suggest that you try to send a private message if the account is still active. Click on CalebRM in the avatar and then click on private message. He will get an email alert. I doubt that he is hanging around the forum as he is only showing 3 posts.
