New Winchester (Miroku) M92
« on: October 16, 2020, 03:19:59 PM »
Been looking for a '92 short rifle in .357 mag..  Can't seem to find one anywhere.  Lots of online retailers list them in the $850 range but they're all "out of stock".  Is this a COVID thing or are they just that popular?

I can't see how places stay in business, when they never have anything in stock  ???

To your question .... you need only read
https://www.brookings.edu/blog/up-front/2020/07/13/three-million-more-guns-the-spring-2020-spike-in-firearm-sales/

 The Spring 2020 143% spike in firearm sales have continued.
   
Firearms, Ammo & components are in short supply due to both Covid19  & civil unrest driving sales, and a greatly reduced manufacturing labor force.

So...Yes to your two part question .... Covid19  AND short supply

I understand the spike in "assault weapon" (whatever that is) sales 'cause Beto O'Rourke is coming to get them but a Winchester '92.......

Please don't anybody tell Beto that the Henry was the original assault rifle!

They show up on gunbroker every week or so, but be prepared to pay a huge premium.
I saw one a couple weeks back go for $1750.
No, that's not a typo.   :o

Have been looking several years for a carbine 20 inch carbine by Miroku.  Went in to Cabelas in Glendale, AZ and asked if they could order a rifle, the answer is no, not since taken over buy basspro.  He asked what is was looking for, told him 1892 20 inch carbine in 44 mag.  He got on the computer and the entire Bass Pro Cabelas network had 1 in springfield missouri.  He gave me the sku and the phone number of the springfield store.  Got it for not much more than MSRP after veterans discount, well under the $1700 mentioned earlier on a Gun Broker gun. The carbine should have shipped today, anticipate it be here Wednesday or so.

I currently have a Rossi 20 inch carbine which is perfect with the 12 3/4 LOP.  I also have a Hartford 24 inch octo rifle which has a 13 1/2 LOP which requires concerted effort to get lever all the way open while butt is still in the shoulder (an actual extension of the fingers to move the lever all the way.  This is not real conducive for fast times in SASS matches.  This is sad as the rifle (bought from Nate Kiowa Jones) is so slick and smooth.  Hope the Miroku is as smooth.
