Thanks Trap ...!
My grandfather bought it new. My dad (born in 1929), always remembered him having it.

That would have been a fairly expensive purchase back then. I show it selling for $58 in 1922. About that time, my grandfather use to plow fields from sunup to sundown for $1 a day!
Couple of historical facts, it served in WWI with the French, and used to kill Bonnie and Clyde.

My '92 Winchester .44-40 has a lot of special features. Someone got me a free "record check" (not a factory letter). The frame serial number says the gun was made in 1904, but it actually left the factory in 1911. Seems they sat on the pistol grip frame until a special order eventually happened then they pulled the frame out of the bin seven years later. Here's the Cody record check and the gun. All original.

Wyatt, what I find unusual, and have never seen before, it was made in 1904, but wasn't received in the warehouse until 1911??? Where the hell was it for for 7 years?
Completed guns went straight to the warehouse for shipping, or after, waited a few months until sold, or to fill a shipment order. 7 freakin years to test fire and work out some bugs? Employee 5 finger discount until he got caught? That has to have a good story behind it.
Michael will want to catalog that one for his 1892 survey.

The Winchester collector who let me use one of his "record checks" speculated that the pistol grip frame was made in 1904 and they probably just kept these stashed until a special order came in and then they would grab one. Are pistol gripped '92s so uncommon that a frame could sit there for seven years? Maybe they overlooked it all that time in inventory. I read that in the 30s I think, boxed brand new Volcanic rifles were found stashed away and Winchester sold them to employees at the front gate for fifty cents each. I think I know which book that's in.
BTW, another guy looked up the old cattle brand put on each side of the stock of this rifle and it's from a ranch that was three hours away from where I'm sitting now. Interesting that in the age of high velocity .30-30, 30-40, .30-06, etc. lever action Winchesters of the time someone really wanted a specific special ordered .44-40.

Default Brand new Volcanic rifles in the box for 25 cents each!

This is from an old book called "Civil War Guns" by Edwards. Winchester found old unsold NIB Volcanic rifles in the warehouse somewhere in the 20s or 30s and sold them to employees for a quarter a piece. Not only pre Winchester, but pre Henry and with a S&W connection.

Well, since someone brought up a model 88, here's another one. I wonder if I posted it long ago in this thread. It's a pre 64 in .284 Winchester that was my dad's favorite gun. I think it's from 1963 because it's pre 64 and I believe the .284 came out in '63. A cartridge ahead of it's time. How many of these in this caliber you think were pre 64? Serial # 1435XXA. Thanks for looking this stuff up for us. I have a 10 round extended aftermarket magazine for it, too.

This was the sad day I brought it home.
The only bad part of inheriting a gun, is you lose something far more valuable in the trade.
That's a 1963, the lowest production pre-64 year of 9,020. The last one made in 1963 was ser# 148858. The .284 Winchester was introduced in the Models 88 and 100 for '63

Followed you home because it went out for a walk and got lost. I can come and get it, and bring it back home.
All that fancy trimming, and no special order sights?

Sorry Dave, she is staying with me. The only way it is coming out of my safe is if it involves an original Henry!

I am ordering a Cody letter this week. I had a friend from the WACA website do a search and it comes back as you see it. I do have a thick base long range venier sight that i might put on it.
