Gear Review: Winchester 1892 Large Loop Carbine

Model-1892-Large-Loop-Carbine-loDid you dream of the Winchester 1892 large loop carbine when you were a kid, watching those old west movies?

Winchester Repeating Arms is helping make those dreams come true with the introduction of the 1892 Large Loop Carbine back in to their rifle line for 2012.  The new rifle looks just like the original 1892 with a 20-inch button-rifled barrel and overall length of 37 ½ inches.   It features a Grade 1 walnut stock with a rich, satin finish.  The steel contoured carbine strap buttplate is quick to shoulder and protects the buttstock from damage.

The new 1892 also features a Marble Arms front sight with brass bead and an adjustable rear sight.   The full length magazine holds 10 cartridges and the rifle is available in 4 calibers: 357 Mag., 44 Rem Mag., 44-40 Winchester and 45 Colt.   Each rifle comes with an eye-catching saddle ring.

However, the most distinguished feature of the rifle is the Large Loop Lever with radiused edges.   The lever makes it easy to cycle the rife, even with gloves on.   The 1892 will be produced in limited quantities so interested buyers need to contact their Winchester Repeating Arms dealer soon.

Suggested Retail, $1,259.99.
