Triumph, your Colt Lightning 50 Express looks a lot like a Lightning 40-60 listed on gunbroker. Is there a mistake on one site or the other? Is it the same gun?

These 2 1892 Winchester were original .44wcf from 1908 and 1910 (Serial nr. 4xx xxx and 5xx xxx)
They were imported to Argentina.

In Argentina they modified them for Police and Jail to .45 ACP
I don't know when this happened, I heard before 1925.
Then they came to the UK in the 70's, then to Germany.

This is the one from 1908
Ser. no 461 974

Both carbines are heavily used, but shot well.
They are a little bit tricky when reloading, you have to reload fast.

Last pic show the original stamp .44wcf, the 2nd pic the modified bullet ramp, the 3rd pic the .45 stamp from the departments nitro shot.

From the dealer I bought the first one, I heard they modified about 500 of them to .45ACP.

But there are no informations available in the internet.
Perhaps the experts here can say a little bit more about these rare models.

I found a unfired 2001 Winchester 9422 to go with my 2010 USFA 12\22. They both shoot like a dream! Also threw in my Ruger single six for the photo's.
