To help celebrate the 125th year of the Winchester Model 1892, Turnbull Restoration is offering this iconic firearm with its unique color case hardening finish. 

The 1892 rifle will be available in either .44 Mag. with a pistol grip or .45 Colt with a straight grip. Every rifle has a 20” octagonal barrel and factory checkered stocks. The wood has been Turnbull refinished in a hand rubbed oil that gives it Winchester's signature red shade. Each has the tang safety conversion installed to restore these new production rifles to the original 1892 specification.

"We are real sticklers for historical accuracy here at Turnbull," said CEO and Founder Doug Turnbull of the 1892. "So when we started, we knew we had to restore the safety to the original tang configuration to remain true to ourselves and this piece of firearm history. So we did."

The receiver, lever, hammer, buttplate and fore-end cap are finished in Turnbull's unique color case hardening using the traditional methods. All blued parts retain the Winchester original factory bluing.

MSRP: $2,500. For more information visit turnbullrestoration.com
