For the most part, carbines have round barrel, different sights, forend with barrel band, and the flatter buttstock.
 
rifles are octagonal, dovetailed front sight, forend has nose cap, and crescent buttstock.

That is repro '92's.  Uberti '73 and '66 would be the same.  Some original guns had round barrels on rifles.

Most fellers I know would call a 20' rifle configuration lever gun a "short Rifle" (crescent buttplate + nosecap + dovetailed magazine hanger but carbine length barrel)
Where the carbine version (usually) has the flatter buttplate+forend band+front barrel band
Winchester in their day being almost a custom shop you proly coulda ordered almost any combination of the above that you felt inclined to.
 
(we have 2 uberti carbines that are 19inch)

I have a stainless M92 in 45colt,  Is it NWOCS legal?

The Rossi R92 in .45 Colt is what I shoot in NCOWS. Mine is not stainless, but why would that make any difference?

I HAVE been told that a lever action rifle chambered in .45 Colt did not exist in the time frame we are reenacting. The revolver, yes, but the not the rifle.

Still, no one has told me I can't, and there are several other members in our posse that shoot .45 Colt rifles, so I will continue.
