    Gun Show Find, 92 Winchester

    Well, this was my first time at the Prescott Valley Crossroads of the West Gun Show. This is a fairly new promoter for a regional gun show that has been running for several years.

    I took several guns as trade material with me and swapped off the National Ordanance Garand Tanker modified to utilize M-14 Magazines for a 92 Winchester Rifle with octagon barrel chambered for .32 WCF (32-20). It has been reblued and the stock refinished. The rifling is strong with some discoloration. All-in-all, this classic rifle promises to be a good shooter in a caliber that I'm particularly fond of.....

    * EDIT * Clarification: Crossroads of the West is far from a new gun show promoter......they have been promoting gun shows in several states for a number of years. However, the Prescott Valley show is a newer venue for this promoter.

    I think lever guns are cool. That, and pump action are what I grew up shoot. Dad never owned a bolt action rifle until I was grown up and out of the house. As a result, I find bolt actions awkward to operate and have never owned one. Here in NW PA in the heart of the Allegheny National Forest the woods are fairly thick and a 100 yard or more shot at a deer is uncommon so my Marlin 30-30 is really all the rifle I need. Congratulations on finding a Winchester in your favorite caliber

    Jonesy, speaking of your 30-30 Marlin and my appreciation of .32WCF. here's my 94C Marlin in 32-20 (shown with a Uberti in the same caliber).....Name:  UbertiMarlin32-20_01.JPG

    Congrats Bill on another 32-20 in a Legendary Rifle. Congrats as that seems like a successful show.

    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.

    That's a nice one Bill. Mine is a half round, half octagon with the crescent butt. Not much finish but a dandy shooter. Come to think of it, I have 6 guns chambered for the 32-20 Winchester: the 92 Win, a Stevens 44 single shot, three S&W hand ejectors and a Italian made Colt SA clone. The latter, a Uberti, is the only one with nearly 100% finish.

    I say "nearly" because I had to file down the front sight because it shot way too high. I think the height was set for 45 Colt.
