Senior Member Member # 5995 Join Date Apr 2009 Location Northern NJ Posts 488 Liked 1357 times Looking to sell an original Winchester ’92 in 44-40, 24”barrel manufactured in second month of production in 1892! It has a very early and perhaps unique S/N 1917. The rifle has great wood and except for a minor ding on the barrel and the re-stamping of the caliber to 44-40 (not sure when or why this was done but the gun is a 44-40). Great old Winchester for your collection or shooting - beautiful bore – these actions were very strong! Asking $1595 plus shipping, thank you for looking. JK
My good fortune is your good fortune. I just got my Henry Repeating Arms H011 "Classic 1860 Henry" to do a Cowboy Chronicle article on, so I don't need my very early Navy Arms 1860 Henry .44-40. This 1860 Henry was made in the US by Val Forget Jr. of Navy Arms around 1976, before Uberti started making 1860 Henry in 1979. Though figures are not exact, less than 3,000 were made by Navy Arms, with only about 500-1,000 (depending on the source you read) being the 24" standard model in .44-40. The rest were 22" Carbine models, a few in .44 Rimfire, and various presentation models. This is a great shooter and great collector piece. It is the second, American made Henry (the first being the originals made by New Haven Arms, and the third being the current Henry Repeating Arms Classic). Condition is 99% +, as it was unfired when I got it. I have used it at about 6 or 7 matches, so a few minor dings on stock and small marks on brass. It is dead nuts on at 25 yards. Stock is beautiful American Black Walnut with oil finish. Dimensions of this Navy Arms is closer to the original than the Uberti made ones. Top of barrel Marked "Henry's Patent Oct 16, 1860, manufactured by Navy Arms Co. Ridgefield N.J." Serial number A262, marked .44-40. Pictures accurately show condition, but stock is actually darker brown that the digital photos show. It has an advantage over the Uberti 1860 that black powder shooters will appreciate. Rather than the Uberti's both side plates having to be driven out to disassemble, the Navy Arms Henry uses an 1866 style single side plate screw to disassemble, MUCH easier to clean after shooting black powder than an Uberti. PRICE $895.00 plus $50 shipping and insurance to your FFL. USPS postal money order or p@y p@l friends and family ONLY
I am seeking to purchase a Winchester 1892 model carbine with a large loop lever. So far I've only found it available in 45 colt and 44-40. I am interested in the 16" barrel, but can only find it NIB in 20". My question: 44-40 vs 45 colt. Which performs better in factory loads (regardless of cost or availability), and why? Note: I will NOT be reloading, and I don't mind searching for rounds then stocking up. I prefer factory ammo, and I don't care which is less expensive or less available...just which performs better. Intended use: I am interested in using the rifle for indoor/outdoor range shooting, possibly hunting, and hopefully SASS in the future once I get my kit together. Again, I'm not going to reload, ever. I prefer to purchase manufactured ammo. I am also aware of LeverEvolution ammo, which looks intriguing.
Offered for sale are: a pair of Taylor & Company (Uberti made) Cattleman single action revolvers. Caliber 44-40, 5 1/2" barrels. Consecutive serial numbers. These guns are essentially new and have been shot in practice only three times. Asking $800 for the pair (will not consider splitting them up). I hate to part with these guns but have instead decided to gear up in caliber 357 Magnum, like my wife. I also have a set of Redding 44-40 die available. Asking price does not include shipping and FFL costs on buyer's end. I can only ship to an FFL and you must confirm that they will accept shipment from a non-FFL source.
