Turnbull Finished Winchester 1892 Deluxe Engraved Takedown, Includes Custom Case – SALE PENDING
UPDATE: This listing now includes a Turnbull hand-made case, a $425 value.
There’s no hiding that the history of Winchester lever guns captured our hearts and minds long ago. Because of that affinity, and due to popular demand, Turnbull Restoration has launched a new addition to the Turnbull Finished family: the Turnbull Winchester 1892 Deluxe Takedown, featuring world-famous Turnbull metal and wood finishing touches. And this unique example is adorned with the exquisite work of our in-house engraver Tom McArdle.
Starting with a factory-new Winchester Model 1892 in our own special configuration, we charcoal blue the receiver, forend cap and small parts with our period-correct methods. We apply our signature bone charcoal color case hardening process to the lever, hammer and butt plate. The loading gate and screws have been nitre blued, imparting a brilliant appeal. In addition, we refinish the 24″ full octagon barrel and full-length magazine tube in classic-era rust blue. And last but not least, we refinish the grade 5/6 American walnut stocks in a hand-rubbed oil finish to match Winchester’s classic red shading.
Rounding out the 92’s John Browning reversion is our tang safety conversion process, taking this example back to a half-cock safety as it was originally designed over a century ago. And, by popular request, we are now lightening the lever gun’s mainspring which relieves the stiff cycling and heavy trigger pull of the factory setup. The result: a factory-new Model 1892 that looks AND runs like an original.

“Unsurprisingly for a rifle which has been around the better part of 130 years, many versions of the Winchester ’92 are available, including replicas by other makers but none quite match up to the Turnbull Restoration Company version.”
