It looks like it is still useable to me. Here is my old 1892 with SN 31.
I got this 1892 Winchester SRC .44 cal. many years ago, serial number looks to be 52772, not sure about the last number 2, I know it's ugly and looks like it's been left out in the rain to many times.The action feels like new, the bore is well used, it looks like it has not been fired in the last hundred years, I just leave it on my computer desk top with another well used Colt SAA .45.
I guess that's all guns like this are good for any more. not a relic yet, but maybe a good wall hanger.
Any one else have any interesting old guns they use for wall hangers only ?
That is the lowest serial number I have seen on a 92 model, is that the configuration the gun came ? I'm not to up on Winchesters, the front looks diff. what model is it ?
That is a beauty! I would have it checked out, there might be a lot of life left in that beastie!

That old gal still has understated beauty Iboos...
And yea...that #31's magazine tube is missing.
I see it has been plugged at the end of the forearm.
...please fill us in on the details.

Iboos, great old Winchester. Looks like it earned it's keep.
Love those 92's! Here is one of mine, a very nice condition gun but with receiver blue all flaked off. Serial range is 596,xxx.
Nice looking ole Winchester, around 1911 ? looks like it still has a lot of blue on the rest of the gun, I'll bet it's still in working order, what cal. is it ?
Every time I see one of these SRC's I think of the Duke carrying one in his movies.
This sits proudly on our living room wall. I've had it for about 40 years and have fired it only a couple of times. It's quite a conversation starter. It's a Harrington & Richardson M1 from 1954.
