    Another old Winchester

    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 ?

    It looks like it is still useable to me. Here is my old 1892 with SN 31.

    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.

    Thanks...

    Wow, serial number 31. I've not seen an earlier model 1892. Pretty interesting configuration carbine with the half magazine (button mag). Did you ever get a letter on it? I'd be anxious to see if that is how it left Winchester.

    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.

    Wall Hanger

    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.
