Is Winchester 92 same as 1892?

Hate to sound dumb, but, just got a Winchester 92 saddle ring carbine 25-20 and when I use the Winchester serial number chart is takes me to 1892 model ? The rifle is stamped Model #92.

Yes it is the same. And a Model 94 is the same as an 1894. Welcome to the forum.

Winchester 92 saddle ring carbine

Thank you so much Dennis for the warm welcome and the info on the rifle. I was getting frustrated everytime I would put the info into the Winchester site and it would come back 1892. From the serial number, this Model 92 was manufactured in 1925. I got the rifle from my father-in-law last night who has had it in his closet for the last 65 years at least. He got it from his mother, who he believes was the original owner. My father in law never shot the rifle in all those years. The rifle is in excellent shape and has a carved stock on it. If I can figure out how to load pictures, I will post them. This is a 25-20 caliber rifle and was in a rifle sleeve all those years.

OK, posting pictures? Do I need to link them through Photobucket or how does it work? I am terrible with computers.

A big welcome from the north woods of Wisconsin. Lots of lever gun love, here, especially those great old classics.

The 25-20 is an interesting caliber. There is ammo available but before I put rounds thru it I'd have a gunsmith check it out. Sounds like a family heirloom, enjoy it.

Welcome to the forum from NH and glad you decided to join us.

That is a sweet looking lever action. Looks like it has been sitting quietly more than being carried.

That's very nice. 92 years old, doesn't look a day over a well cared for ten.

Thanks on the look of the rifle. It has a carved stock and I was wondering if that was a special order from Winchester or was it an after market product. What does the carved stock do to the value of the rifle?

If you can prove it was done by Winchester - and that may be difficult, will most likely need the help of an expert collector - it greatly increases the value of the gun. If you can prove it was done by a famous carver - also difficult to prove - it will increase value. Otherwise, it may or may not affect value, depending on the quality of the work. Much will depend on a potential buyer. Looks lovely. Certainly wouldn't bother me.
