I've got a 3yr old one in .45 colt. Let me know if that will help you. Is yours in pieces?

Thanks from IRON WORKER

Really need original 38 or 44 receiver as I need machining detail .I've got an stripped beater action that is 32 WCF and will be converting to 38 WCF.

I know mag tube opening specs but I want to also check for aditional cuts they made on inside. I know there is a detent slot /hole on left for carrier.
I think maybe loading port entry may have additional inside cuts..

Thanks from Sgt Nambu

I'm interested in seeing them as I'd like to compare classic to new.

My 92 is a first year production that was originally a 44-40 rifle, at some point it was rebarreled to .44 magnum and made into a carbine. I shoot .44 Specials out of it. I will get it out this weekend and take some pictures.

Thanks from IRON WORKER and Douglas Haig

Thanks for the pics, I can't quite make out the detail I need.I need good close up of detent hole /slot under left cartridge guide.And the inside loading port detail.May need strong light to see good.

Unfortunatly no , 25-20 is same as 32-20 receiver which is what I have.
I can see a little better since looking at them on my lap top but still need more.

Based on the pics 30 cal provided ,looks like the angled entry may be a little larger than my 32 cal.I figured it might be . They also machined either a slot or hole for the carrier detent to snap into when lever is fully open ,limits carrier travel. Only way to see it is when action is open but not all the way so carrier stays down.

I know the same diameter follower and mag tube used on the 1894 were used on 1892 38 and 44 so I will measure a 94 action for that spec.
If possible an outside picture of the loading port open so I can see cross section at fron of cutout that way I can compare to mine.

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but I want to buy my dad a Winchester '92 in a modern pistol caliber. Should I look for a reproduction or the real thing? He's not a collector. Just want to get him a good cowboy lever gun that isn't super heavy and doesn't kick like a mule.

So maybe stuff a pen in and shoot the picture down the axis of the pen?
