Deactivated Winchester M1892 Rifle SN. 3155 -
Deactivated Rossi Winchester M1892 .45 Colt Calibre Rifle, with 24 inch octagonal barrel. In very good, original deactivated condition. Latest EU Spec, so moving lever action, hammer, and trigger, but non firing action. The Winchester carbines and rifles are without doubt one of the most recognisable guns in the world and have been in constant production since 1873 until this day. They were redesigned in 1894 to have much stronger actions, to handle the new smokeless powder cartridges. They have been made in hundreds of calibres and variations of barrel length and furniture that you would need a whole book to list them all. The action was refined by John Moses Browning and still works well enough that there will probably be lever actions still rolling off the production lines in another hundred years’ time. An absolute classic. All deactivated weapons sold by D and B Militaria are deactivated in the United Kingdom and hold London or Birmingham proof marks and a certificate stating that the weapon has been deactivated correctly.
