Re: Restoration of a tired old Winchester 1892

Nice job. I have an 1892 of about that date - not sure because it was hunted so hard that the last two serial number numerals are worn off. A previous owner converted it to .357 mag with 20 inch Douglas barrel and Bishop stocks so it make a good mate for my .357 revolver. https://www.jpgbox.com/jpg/...

Another plus, is that when driving around the ranch, the gun is free to draw - moreso than if carried strong side. This is true for right handed shooters.
