The takedown version of the famous Winchester 1892 lever action rifle was last manufactured in 1932. For the first time in 77 years Winchester are producing a limited run of the rifle.
The deluxe rifles feature high grade walnut stocks and octagonal barrel. The 20″ version is chambered in .44-40 and .45 Long Colt and has a MSRP of $1874.95. The 24″ version is chambered in .44-40, .38-40, .32-20 and .45 Long Colt and has a MSRP of $1899.95.
For each caliber offered, 500 rifles will be made in the 20″ version and 250 in the 24″ version.
Winchester should seriously consider mass producing a modern takedown version in .30-30 and some of the fancy new Marlin cartridges such as the .308 Marlin Express. I think it would sell very well.
