  • Re-Barreling

    Hi, I am thinking of getting an old Winchester 1892, as most of the affordable example have worn barrels, I got to thinking a new barrel might be the order, but which of the 4 original calibers would be the easiest/cheapest to get Re barreled?

    The 25-20, 32-2-, 38-40 or the 44-40 (I would prefer on of the last two, but authenticity is more important, in terms of cartridge, I don't want to re-barrel to say a .357)

    most importantly does anyone know of a Gunsmith in preferably in SA who might do this sort of work?

      If you want to keep the appearance and markings on the old girl have it relined with a new rifled sleeve. I have a 44 Special, 43/20 ans 38/40 that have had the treatment and all shoot as well as a new one!
      Hold still varmint, whilst I plugs ya!
