On the back of the stock another No. 3650 with No. 94 positioned below it. The "94" believed to be for the Model '94, so 94's and 92's are interchangeable.

No chips or slivers of wood to indicate abuse. An extremely rare straight gripped deluxe. Screw heads half of them are boogered up. Fine to very fine overall, an extremely rare '92 with rosewood stock.

It was received back to the warehouse eight times between May 11th, 1897 and December 7th, 1901; probably for a salesman's sample as factory records indicate all billing is to be to Ex. Show case sample account. Bore is excellent with sharp rifling. Rifle cycles correctly, mechanics are fine. From the Ray Bentley Collection.
