I have but one, but I love it.  It's a well worn but very clean rifle from 1894, in 44 WCF.  The barrel is octagonal and 24".   Action:  Smooth as silk.

I deleted the photobucket images:  don't know how to add new pictures from my files...any help?

I added this from Imgur but only got a URL addy...how do I get the image to appear here?

That's my favorite!  Putting one together just like it.  I got mine as a very badly done conversion to .44 Special.  Will be back to .44 W.C.F. as soon as I can get a barrel.

Have a 24 inch round barrel that is one of my top two favorite 1892's. Similar too this but not quite as good exterior. It came to me with so much rust and debris that the action would not open. Performed total strip down and cleaning and it now works as designed . Bore was hopeless so I had Hoyt rebore from 38-40 to 44-40 and the accuracy is excellent. I would post picture but can get picture into additional option area but not post from there. By the way my round barrel was made in 1892. The guy I got it from said his grandfather had used it for wolf/ coyote control in west Kansas.

Attaching picture problem
« Reply #5 on: March 10, 2017, 11:17:43 AM »
Have photos on my iPad that I can get to appear in the attach options area of posting to this site but it will not actually appear in the post when I preview it. Also have not been successful with Photoshop as I can not get the URL to appear. Any suggestions?

Always wanted to try building a model 92 take down. Bought a stainless Rossi for a few $$ and had at it.



Replaced the round barrel with octagon....Just because I love the 8 sided barrels

I used to have an 1892 EMF Hartford Carbine in .44-40. I sold it to get an 1873 Winchester.

It had some of the nicest looking wood on the stock and forearm. I believe it was some type of a Brazilian hardwood. I stripped the factory finish off and re-oiled it.

Wish I'd never sold it as my Grandson now shoots with me.

I hacked up a useable but neglected 25-20 SRC - converted to 38-40 rifle - 26inch "Sprinter" barrel, I got it chambered and profiled - did everything else myself .

Did you have any trouble with the small frame 1892 feeding and clambering the 38-40?

Not trouble - but ya gotta alter every dang thing inside thats to do with feeding - and they are a sophisticated piece of machinery!
1)enlarge porthole for magazine tube and fit new follower, complete new magazine assembly - tube - spring - follower - end cap - forend nose cap - hanger - forward barrel band
2) hog out the frame in front of the loading gate to clear the bigger shell
3) alter the lifter - and refit it to the frame on the left side (there a couple little detents there on a 38/44 that are part of the left side cartridge guide on the smaller ones)
4) alter the cartridge guides to feed the bigger shell
5) I made a new magazine cutoff nose for the left side guide
6) alter the bolt face and ejector button
7) alter the extractor claw (I used one off an early model 94 that I had - it fit straight in!)
I had a functioning 44-40 to copy off - could not have done it without - and you need to be happy to strip and reassemble a 92 at least 60 times - maybe more - it was a job that makes no economic sense at all - but neither does blasting hundreds of rounds at steel plates every weekend - i enjoyed the trip and I like the result ...

Nope - frame size is same - 44/40 was the first version - so the small (25/20, 32/20, 218 bee) cartridge versions later were an adaption of the original design - only difference in frame size is / was normal manufacturing tolerances and minor changes from batch to batch - my conversion gun is a full thread shorter fit at the barrel shank / shoulder than some others (44/40s) we have seen.

The amount of work you did to get a small cartridge version upped to a 44-40 was awesome. I was not smart enough to go the route you went. I also wanted a 44-40 back when they had been soaked up for cas shooting as was their price.  I was lucky enough to make much easier conversions but think you must have gained a very detailed expertise from the route you took that I did not. I tip my hat to you!

I went 38/40 - I had a real good one many years ago - almost mint bore and internals - sold it before I knew any better (we do dumb stuff sometimes!) same work for a 38/40 or 44/40 conversion tho - I have a decent lathe and a mill drill - some tooling - I created something a little different from what we normally see - and I like what I did - very satisfying - I knew 92's pretty good before I started  (ha ! I thought I did) learnt a lot doin this .
So how did you do your easier conversions ? what did you do and to what ? I am interested in that . Maybe I took the long road home here .

Ok Thats what I thought. I guess I interpreted something wrong. Thanks. I have an older presafety Rossi in 44-40 that has been trouble free for 20+ years. Pictured above somewhere.
