The Model 1892 (or The 92 as most of us call it) was Winchesters follow-up to the amazing Model 1886. The 86 was designed for large huntingmilitary calibers of the 1800s like 45-70. Soon after its 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 dont despair companies (like Marbles) 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.
