    Well I finally pulled the trigger over at CDNN and dropped $1500 on a special Winchester 1892 in .44 Mag.

    It had everything I have been looking for over a long time. A 24" barrel would have been nice, but a 20" barrel has it's advantages.

    There are three left at the CDNN website, If you like these lever actions then now is the time to buy.

    If you need ammo, Target sports has a killer deal on American Eagle .44 Magnum ammo in 1000 round case lots. With free shipping and manufacturers rebate it is about 0.52 cents per round.

    Nice pickup!! Beautiful wood and the color case hardening looks sharp!

    I’ve got great grandpas 1892 in .32wcf and a few others from grandpa and dad.

    The only lever action I’ve added to the legacy hoard is a Rossi puma carbine in .357 that I had slicked up. It’s nice to not have to worry about scuffing or dinging it.

    Guess you got tired of the rat race going on with the ones in White.

    Very nice indeed. Congrats.

    Mine is up at Turnbull, and should be going into the works sometime late February, early March.

    This is the part of the problem, Rifles like this only come around once every twenty years. Usually the will cost you a first born son. Colt does this with their SA revolvers, but now there is Standard Mfg. http://www.stdgun.com/sa-revolver-1/ They are pricey, but I have heard that they are just as good or better than US Arms.

    The rat race went uptown and prices doubled from $1325 to $2700!

    There are still three available at $1500 which is a sweet deal!

    Nice one!
    The '92 is a "mini '86". One of JMB's best designs.

    Will do. Considering what I am having done, it wasn't too bad cost wise. The largest part of the cost will be the receiver. Having the tang safety removed, having the hold filled, converting the hammer and firing pin to traditional half notch from the rebounding hammer setup it currently has, then having it finished in Carbona Charcoal Blue, I really cannot complain with the quote.

    As I am starting with a brand new rifle, other than basic prep work with no restoration work, it keeps the costs down.

    That is a fine looking rifle in a good caliber; add that one to my short list too.

    I know how you feel about the lack of $, But things came together at the last minute. I had a Kimber 8400 in 30-06 on consignment for TWO years and it finally sold. The LGS said he could have sold it at a higher price many times if it had been another caliber. Going to put my NIB 1892 Winchester .44 Magnum on consignment.

    @MrWhipple I picked up my 1892 Winchester/Navy arms today and it is stunning!

    I would post pictures, but I still haven't found a work around for the uploads from a Samsung phone to Microsoft which is really frustrating!

    The 20" octagon barrel and magazine tube are a deep glossy blue/black. The frame, trigger, trigger guard, hammer, lever and crescent butt plate are color case hardened and lean towards striped metallic blue with high lights of yellow and red. The wood is very nice and finished with a gloss lacquer(?). The checkering is gorgeous and feels a little sharp to the touch.

    The action is smooth and I assume that it will become even smoother with use. I guesstimate the trigger pull at a crisp six pounds with no creep or take up.

    Compared to a new/old stock 1892 short rifle? Everything is one to two steps above.

    At $1500 it is definitely a great buy. The Navy arms 1892's have an MSRP of $2300 and prices ranging from $2016-$2045.

    I hope I don't have to push you around anymore! Can we be friends? :grin:
