In response to consumer demand, Turnbull Restoration has added two new limited release Winchester 1892 lever rifles in its deluxe takedown configuration, chambered in .44-40 Win. and .45 Colt.
Each rifle features a bone charcoal color case hardened receiver, hammer, lever, takedown collar, fore-end cap and butt plate. The octagonal barrel and full-length magazine tube are finished in Turnbull Restoration’s period-correct rust bluing. Small parts are charcoal blued.
The furniture on the classic lever rifles is all Grade 5/6 American Walnut, hand-rubbed with an oil finish to match the early Winchester red shading. The stock has a deluxe pistol grip and is factory-checkered at 20 lpi. Turnbull Restoration has also completed a tang safety conversion to take the rifle back to the half-cock safety as Browning designed it.
“Since we launched our Turnbull Finished family, we’ve worked closely with the great people at Winchester,” said CEO and founder Doug Turnbull. “These two lever-action offerings are more evidence of the solid working relationship we’re proud to share with Winchester. I can’t wait to see what we do next.”
Both the .44-40 Win. And .45 Colt calibers have a 24” fully octagonal barrel and a full-length magazine tube that holds 12 rounds. Both have an adjustable rear sight and fixed front sight. MSRP starts at $3,450.
