Nineteenth-century rifles have returned to the Winchester line for 2014. The 1873 reproduction that appeared in .357 Magnum last year is now available with a case-colored receiver and a crescent butt in two additional chamberings: .44-40 and .45 Colt. The rifle is true to form, with a 20-inch barrel and a full-length magazine. The 1892 Large Loop Carbine arrives in the same chamberings plus .44 Magnum. It’s also a straight-grip carbine with a muzzle-length tube, but of the later (and stronger) Browning sliding-block design. Counting the Model 65 variant, more than 1,034,000 original Model 1892s were built before the rifle was dropped from Winchester catalogs in 1941. For more information, visit winchesterguns.com.
