The Model 1892 was born from the incredible success
of the Model 1886 when it became obvious that a
smaller caliber version would be an extremely useful
addition. Like its predecessor, the Model 1892 features
dual, vertical locking lugs for impressive strength in a
more compact, even faster handling size.
The popularity of the Model 1892 is legendary.
Admiral Peary carried one on his quest for the North
Pole. It was a favorite of Annie Oakley, and the first
choice for the legendary actor John Wayne. Hundreds
of thousands of ranchers and hunters have chosen the
Model 1892 over the competition for over a century.

excuse for pointing your firearm’s muzzle in an
unsafe direction. See “Operation of the “Safety”
on page 14 for instructions on the operation of
this firearm’s “safety.”
You Are Responsible For
Firearm Safety
FAILURE TO FOLLOW ANY OF THE FOLLOWING
WARNINGS COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
As a firearm owner, you accept a set of demanding
responsibilities. How seriously you take these
responsibilities can be the difference between life
and death.
There is no excuse for careless or abusive handling of
any firearm. At all times handle this firearm and all
other firearms with intense respect for their power and
potential danger.
Please read and understand all of the cautions,
warnings, notices, proper handling procedures and
instructions outlined in this owner’s manual before
using your new firearm.
1 ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE OF YOUR FIREARM
POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION EVEN THOUGH
YOU ARE CERTAIN IT IS UNLOADED.
Never point any firearm at anything you do not
intend to shoot. Be extremely alert and aware of
all persons and property within the range of
your ammunition.
2 NEVER RELY TOTALLY ON YOUR FIREARM’S
MECHANICAL “SAFETY” DEVICE. LIKE ANY
MECHANICAL DEVICE, A “SAFETY” CAN
SOMETIMES FAIL; IT CAN BE JARRED OR
INADVERTENTLY MANIPULATED INTO AN
UNSAFE CONDITION.
The word “safety” describes a firearm’s trigger
block mechanism, sear block mechanism, hammer
block mechanism or firing pin block mechanism.
Mechanical “safeties” are designed to place your
firearm in a safer status, and no guarantee can be
made that the firearm will not fire even if the
“safety” is in the on safe position. Mechanical
“safeties” merely aid safe gun handling and are no
­2
Remember, safe gun handling does not stop with
your firearm’s mechanical “safety” devices, it starts
there. Always treat this firearm with the respect
due a loaded, ready-to-fire firearm.
Some firearms do not have a mechanical “safety.”
Many target firearms, lever-action firearms and
pistols do not have manual “safety” mechanisms.
Therefore it is critical to read and understand the
owner’s manual for every firearm which explains
the safe operation of the firearm.
While it is a good idea to test your firearm’s
mechanical “safety” periodically for proper
function, never test the “safety” while your firearm
is loaded or pointed in an unsafe direction.
3 WHENEVER YOU HANDLE ANY FIREARM, OR
HAND IT TO SOMEONE, ALWAYS OPEN THE
ACTION IMMEDIATELY AND VISUALLY CHECK
THE FIREARM’S CHAMBER TO MAKE CERTAIN
THAT THE FIREARM IS COMPLETELY UNLOADED.
Make certain the firearm does not inadvertently
contain any ammunition. Remember, merely
removing the magazine does not mean the
chamber is unloaded. Always keep the chamber
empty and the “safety” in the on safe position
unless shooting is imminent.
4 ALWAYS WEAR EAR AND EYE PROTECTION WHEN SHOOTING.
Unprotected, repeated exposure to gunfire can
cause hearing damage. Wear hearing protection
(shooting ear plugs or muffs) to guard against
such damage.
Wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes from
flying particles. Allow proper distance (eye relief)
between a scope and your eye when firing a scoped
pistol, rifle or shotgun. Do not use unorthodox
shooting methods that could cause the rearward
travel of the slide or bolt of a firearm to contact
­3
your eyes, face or hands. Always keep a safe
distance between the muzzle of your firearm and
any persons nearby, as muzzle blast, debris and
ejecting cartridges could inflict serious injury.
Always wear eye protection when disassembling
and cleaning any firearm to prevent the possibility
of springs, spring-tensioned parts, solvents or other
agents from contacting your eyes.
5 KEEP ALL FIREARMS UNLOADED DURING
TRANSPORT, EVEN WHEN STORED IN A HOLSTER,
GUN CASE, SCABBARD OR OTHER CONTAINER.
6 DROPPING OR JARRING A LOADED FIREARM CAN
CAUSE ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE.
This can occur even with the “safety” in the
on safe position. Be extremely careful while
hunting or during any shooting activity to avoid
dropping any firearm.
7 HUNTING FROM ELEVATED SURFACES SUCH AS
TREESTANDS IS DANGEROUS.
Doing so may increase the risk of mishandling a
firearm. The following rules should always be
observed by you and those you hunt with. Always
make certain that the stand being used is safe and
stable. Always make certain that your firearm is
unloaded when it is being taken up and down from
the stand. Always make certain that your firearm is
not dropped from the stand, or dropped while it is
being taken up or down from the stand. Remember,
a loaded firearm may discharge when dropped, even
with the “safety” in the on safe position.
8 STORE YOUR FIREARM AND AMMUNITION
SEPARATELY, WELL BEYOND THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
Take prudent safeguards to ensure your firearm does
not become available to untrained, inexperienced
or unwelcome hands. Store all firearms in secure,
locked cases or a gun safe. Keep your firearm
unloaded when not in use.
9 BEWARE OF BARREL OBSTRUCTIONS.
Mud, snow and an infinite variety of other objects
may inadvertently lodge in a barrel bore. It only
­4
takes a small obstruction to cause dangerously
increased pressures that can damage your firearm
and cause serious injury to yourself and others.
BEFORE CHECKING FOR A BARREL
OBSTRUCTION, BE CERTAIN YOUR FIREARM IS
COMPLETELY UNLOADED, THERE IS NOT A LIVE
CARTRIDGE IN THE CHAMBER AND THE
“SAFETY” IS IN THE ON SAFE POSITION.
After assuring yourself that the firearm is
completely unloaded, open the breech or action
and look through the barrel to be sure it is clear of
obstructions. If an obstruction is seen, no matter
how small it may be, clean the bore with a
cleaning rod and patch as described on page 36 of
this owner’s manual.
10 BE ALERT TO THE SIGNS OF AMMUNITION
MALFUNCTION. IF YOU DETECT AN OFF SOUND
OR LIGHT RECOIL WHEN A CARTRIDGE IS FIRED,
DO NOT LOAD ANOTHER CARTRIDGE INTO THE CHAMBER.
If your firearm fails to fire, keep the muzzle pointed
in a safe direction for a minimum of 30 seconds.
Carefully open the action and remove the
cartridge from the chamber. If the primer is
indented, the defective cartridge should be
disposed of in a way that cannot cause harm. If the
primer is not indented, your firearm should be
examined by a qualified gunsmith and the cause of
the malfunction corrected before further use.
Glance down the barrel to make sure that no
obstructions remain in the barrel. Completely
clear the barrel before loading and firing again.
Failure to follow these instructions can cause
extensive damage to your firearm and possible
serious injury to yourself and others.
11 NEVER INSERT A CARTRIDGE OF THE INCORRECT
CALIBER INTO ANY FIREARM.
The caliber of your firearm is marked on the
barrel. Store all cartridges of different calibers in
completely separate and well-marked containers.
Never store cartridges of mixed calibers in a
­5
common container or in your pockets. See page 18
for more information on the correct ammunition
for your firearm.
12 EXAMINE EVERY CARTRIDGE YOU PUT IN YOUR FIREARM.
We assume no responsibility for the use of unsafe
or improper firearm and ammunition
combinations or damage or injury caused by
damaged ammunition. It is your responsibility
to read and heed all warnings in this owner’s
manual and on ammunition boxes. See page 18
for more information on the correct ammunition
for your firearm.
13 USE ONLY SAAMI APPROVED AMMUNITION.
The barrel and action of this firearm have been
made with substantial safety margins beyond the
pressures developed by established American
commercial loads. Nevertheless, we can assume no
liability for incidents which occur through the use
of cartridges of nonstandard dimensions or which
develop pressures in excess of commercially
available ammunition which has been loaded in
accordance with standards established by the
Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’
Institute (SAAMI).
14 MAKE SURE OF ADEQUATE VENTILATION IN THE AREA THAT YOU DISCHARGE A FIREARM.
LEAD EXPOSURE CAN OCCUR FROM
DISCHARGING FIREARMS IN POORLY
VENTILATED AREAS, CLEANING FIREARMS OR HANDLING AMMUNITION.
Lead is a substance that has been known to cause
birth defects, reproductive harm and other serious
injury. Wash hands thoroughly after exposure to
ammunition or after cleaning a firearm.
15 DO NOT SNAP THE FIRING PIN ON AN EMPTY
CHAMBER; THE CHAMBER MAY NOT BE EMPTY! Treat every firearm with the respect due a loaded
firearm, even though you are certain the firearm
is unloaded.
­6
16 KEEP YOUR FINGERS AWAY FROM THE TRIGGER
WHILE LOADING AND UNLOADING UNTIL
SHOOTING IS IMMINENT.
17 BE SURE OF YOUR TARGET AND BACKSTOP,
PARTICULARLY DURING LOW LIGHT PERIODS. Know the range of your ammunition. Never shoot
at water or hard objects.
18 ALWAYS UNLOAD YOUR FIREARM’S CHAMBER
BEFORE CROSSING A FENCE, CLIMBING A TREE, JUMPING A DITCH OR NEGOTIATING OTHER OBSTACLES.
Never place your firearm on or against a fence,
tree, car or other similar object.
19 BE DEFENSIVE AND ON GUARD AGAINST UNSAFE
GUN HANDLING AROUND YOU AND OTHERS.
Don’t be timid when it comes to firearm safety.
If you observe other shooters violating any of
these safety precautions, politely suggest safer
handling practices.
20 BE CERTAIN YOUR FIREARM IS UNLOADED BEFORE CLEANING. Because so many firearm accidents occur when a
firearm is being cleaned, special and extreme care
should be taken to be sure your firearm is unloaded
before disassembly, cleaning and reassembly.
Keep ammunition away from the cleaning
location. Never test the mechanical function of
any firearm with live ammunition.
21 TEACH AND SUPERVISE FIREARMS SAFETY TO ALL MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY, ESPECIALLY TO CHILDREN AND NON-SHOOTERS.
Closely supervise newcomers to the shooting
sports. Encourage enrollment in hunting and
shooting safety courses.
22 NEVER DRINK ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OR TAKE ANY TYPE OF DRUGS BEFORE OR DURING SHOOTING.
Your vision, motor skills and judgment could be
dangerously impaired, making your gun handling
unsafe to you and to others.
­7
23 READ AND HEED ALL WARNINGS IN THIS
OWNER’S MANUAL, ON AMMUNITION BOXES AND WITH ALL ACCESSORIES THAT YOU INSTALL
ON YOUR FIREARM.
It is your responsibility to secure the most up-todate information on the safe handling procedures
of your Winchester firearm. We assume no liability
for incidents which occur when unsafe or improper
firearm accessories or ammunition combinations
are used.
24 PRACTICE PERIODIC MAINTENANCE, AVOID
UNAUTHORIZED SERVICING. Your firearm is a mechanical device which will
not last forever, and as such, is subject to wear
and requires periodic inspection, adjustment and
service. Winchester firearms should be serviced
by a Winchester Repeating Arms Authorized
Repair Center or by our Service Facility in
Arnold, Missouri. We assume no responsibility
for injuries suffered or caused by unauthorized
servicing, alterations or modifications of
Winchester firearms.
25 WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE ON
FIREARMS THAT HAVE BEEN ALTERED, ADDED
TO OR SUBSTANTIALLY CHANGED.
Removal of metal from the barrel, or modifications
of the firing mechanism and/or operating parts,
may lead to a refusal of service on such firearms.
We will charge you for parts and labor to return
the firearm to original specifications.
DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, ALTER
THE TRIGGER, “SAFETY” OR OTHER PARTS OF THE FIRING MECHANISM OF THIS OR ANY OTHER
FIREARM. FAILURE TO OBEY THIS WARNING MAY
RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS.
BE CAREFUL!

General Description and Operation
The Model 1892 rifle is one of the firearms that
changed the face of America during the late 1800s.
Conceived from the genius of John M. Browning, the
lever-action Model 1892 is a scaled-down version of
the powerful Model 1886. Cowboys and frontiersmen
preferred a rifle that fired the same ammunition as
their sidearms, and a smaller version of the rugged,
reliable Model 1886 design was a natural choice. The
Model 1892 features dual, vertical locking lugs for
strength in a compact, faster handling size.
Nomenclature
Descriptions in this owner’s manual generally refer to
the firearm in the horizontal, normal firing position.
For example, the muzzle is forward or front; the
buttstock is rearward or rear; the trigger is downward
or underneath; the sights are upward or on top.
Throughout this owner’s manual the action refers to
the mechanism of this rifle which loads and secures
the cartridge in the chamber.
Figure 1 (pages 10-11) covers the general features and
benefits of the Model 1892 design. The appearance of
your rifle may be slightly different, depending on the
version you purchased. Refer to Figures 2, 3 and 4
(pages 12-13) for general part descriptions regarding
your new rifle.
You must become familiar with all the part names
listed before proceeding with the rest of the
instructions in this owner’s manual.
Serial Number
The serial number of your Model 1892 can be found
stamped on the bottom of the receiver, toward the
front. Record the serial number at the front of this
owner’s manual for future reference.

FIGURE 1
Model 1892 Features
The Model 1892 of today is a careful reproduction of one
of the original configurations made over 100 years ago.
Traditional open sights are easily
adjustable for elevation and drift
adjustable for windage.
The Model 1892 design is visually exciting with its
complex machining and hand finishing. These qualities
are uncommon in most of today’s mass produced guns.
They are qualities that take more effort to build, something
you will appreciate for years to come.
The two vertical locking lugs lock
into matching recesses in the
breech bolt for secure lockup.
Innovative rebounding
hammer.
The tubular magazine loads
through a loading port in the
right side of the receiver.
The convenient top-tang
“safety” is easy to reach
with the shooting hand.
The Model 1892 is a compact version of the revered
Model 1886. Smaller, lighter and faster handling than the
Model 1886, the Model 1892 shared the same cartridges as
popular revolvers of the day. That meant the shooter had to
carry only one caliber of ammunition to serve both the rifle
and revolver. The design of the lever and link mechanisms are
both clever and unique. These attributes made the compact
Model 1892 a handy, fast-handling favorite.
Your Model 1892 has a beautiful
stock and buttplate design
patterned after classic versions
popular more than a century ago.

Various exposed metal parts of your new firearm have
been coated at the factory with a rust preventative
compound. Before firing your rifle, clean the anti-rust
compound from the inside of the barrel, receiver and
the action-chamber areas. A fine, light gun oil is ideal
for removing this compound and for giving your new
firearm its first lubrication. However, any quality
firearm oil may be used. Clean the barrel using a
cleaning rod and patch as explained under “Cleaning
and Maintenance Suggestions” on page 36. If your
rifle is to be stored, it is acceptable to leave the rust
preventative compound on the rifle and keep it in its
original packaging.
Before beginning the first firing of your Model 1892
you should first wipe the mechanism completely
clean. Clean the bore and apply a few drops of quality
oil on the following surfaces (Figure 5, page 14):
­13
FIGURE 5
•On Safe — This is the recommended position
of the “safety” for all times except when firing
is imminent.
To place the “safety” in the on safe position,
point your rifle in a safe direction, then slide the
“safety” fully to the rear with your thumb until
the red warning dot is covered by the “safety”
and the “S” is visible (Figure 6, page 15).
Moving the “safety” fully rearward and exposing
the “S” blocks the hammer from striking the
firing pin.
Lightly oil the rifle at these points.
•Along the breech bolt surface.
•Along the breech bolt rail surfaces.
•On all pivot points and bearing surfaces on the
finger lever mechanism.
Avoid applying too much oil. Only a light film is
necessary. Cleaning and Maintenance Suggestions
should be followed before each oiling.
Operation of the “Safety”
ALWAYS KEEP THE “SAFETY” IN THE ON SAFE
POSITION AND THE HAMMER IN THE REBOUND
POSITION UNLESS SHOOTING IS IMMINENT. ALWAYS
KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE WARNINGS COULD
RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
The Model 1892 features a top-tang hammer block
“safety.” When the “safety” has been placed in the on
safe position it blocks the hammer from striking the
firing pin. However, the “safety” does not prevent the
hammer from falling when the trigger is pulled, even if
the “safety” is in the on safe position. When the trigger
is pulled, with the “safety” in the on safe position, the
hammer drops to the rebound position without striking
the firing pin. The “safety” has two positions:
­14
•Off Safe — When the “safety” is pushed all
the way forward it is in the off safe position
(Figure 7, page 15). In this position, when the
trigger is pulled, the cocked hammer will fall
and strike the firing pin. If a cartridge is in the
chamber the firing pin will strike the primer
and fire the cartridge.
To place the “safety” in the off safe position,
point your rifle in a safe direction, then slide the
“safety” fully forward, covering the “S” inscribed
on the rifle, and exposing the red warning dot.
When the red warning dot is visible the “safety”
is in the off safe position.
The “safety” can be actuated with the hammer
in the rebound or cocked position.

FIGURE 8
FIGURE 9
The hammer in the
fully-cocked position.
The hammer in the
rebound position.
The rebound position is the recommended
position of the hammer at all times and should
be in that position except (1) when firing is
imminent (2) or immediately after the action
has been cycled.
•Full-Cock Position — This is the position that
the hammer is moved to when firing is imminent
(Figure 9, page 16). It is also the position the
hammer moves to when the action is cycled using
the finger lever.
Rebounding Hammer
The Model 1892 features a rebounding hammer
designed to prevent the hammer from moving forward
and striking the firing pin unless the trigger is pulled.
After firing your rifle the hammer immediately moves
to the rebound position. The hammer can also be
manually lowered from full-cock to the rebound
position as detailed on page 17 under “Lowering
the Hammer.”
Hammer Positions
The rebounding hammer on the Model 1892 has
two positions:
•Rebound Position — This position (Figure 8,
page 16) takes the place of the dropped and
half-cock positions found on the original
Model 1892 rifles.
The rebounding feature of the hammer essentially
eliminates the dropped hammer position. The
hammer only travels to the dropped position
momentarily after the trigger has been pulled
with the hammer fully-cocked. The hammer then
automatically moves to the rebound position.
­16
ALWAYS KEEP THE “SAFETY” IN THE ON SAFE
POSITION WHEN THE HAMMER IS IN THE FULL-COCK
POSITION UNLESS FIRING IS IMMINENT. ALWAYS
KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE WARNINGS COULD
RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
Lowering the Hammer
At any time the hammer can be moved to the
full-cock position either manually or by cycling the
finger lever fully. Unless shooting is imminent it is
important to keep the hammer in the rebound
position. To lower the hammer from the full-cock
position to the rebound position, perform the
following operation.
WHEN LOWERING THE HAMMER TO THE REBOUND
POSITION, ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. ALWAYS KEEP THE “SAFETY” IN THE ON SAFE POSITION. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE WARNINGS COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS
INJURY OR DEATH.
1. Place the “safety” in the on safe position.
2. Place your thumb on the hammer spur and firmly
hold the hammer back slightly with your thumb.
­17
FIGURE 10
FIGURE 11
Carefully lower
the hammer to the
rebound position.
Hold the hammer firmly
and pull the trigger.
3. While holding the hammer back, apply just
enough pressure on the trigger to release the
hammer from the full-cock position (Figure 10,
page 18). Immediately remove your finger from
the trigger, then slowly and carefully allow the
hammer to lower into the rebound position
(Figure 11, page 18).
Additional Information
•Keep the action open (finger lever down) when
your rifle is laying on a bench or table at a
shooting range or other facility, and at all other
times except when you are in the field and
shooting is imminent or the rifle is completely
unloaded and to be securely stored.
Ammunition
DO NOT USE AMMUNITION OTHER THAN WHAT IS INSCRIBED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BARREL.
EXAMINE EVERY CARTRIDGE YOU PUT IN YOUR FIREARM.
­18
DISCHARGING FIREARMS IN POORLY VENTILATED
AREAS, CLEANING FIREARMS OR HANDLING
AMMUNITION MAY RESULT IN EXPOSURE TO LEAD AND OTHER SUBSTANCES KNOWN TO CAUSE BIRTH
DEFECTS, REPRODUCTIVE HARM AND OTHER
SERIOUS PHYSICAL INJURY. HAVE ADEQUATE
VENTILATION AT ALL TIMES. WASH HANDS
THOROUGHLY AFTER HANDLING AMMUNITION.
USE ONLY AMMUNITION SUITABLE FOR USE IN A
CENTERFIRE RIFLE WITH A TUBULAR MAGAZINE.
USE ONLY FLAT NOSE, HOLLOW POINT, ROUND NOSE
FLAT POINT OR SIMILAR BULLETS. NEVER USE
POINTED OR CONICAL POINT BULLETS IN A
CENTERFIRE RIFLE WITH A TUBULAR MAGAZINE.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS COULD
RESULT IN INJURY TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS, AND
CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR FIREARM.
The Model 1892 is designed to shoot modern factory
cartridges only. The caliber of your new Model 1892 is
inscribed on the top of the barrel, just in front of the
receiver. Make sure you use only the exact
ammunition/caliber as listed on the barrel.
The barrel and action of this rifle have been made
with substantial safety margins over the pressures
developed by established American loads. However,
we assume no responsibility for incidents which occur
through the use of cartridges of nonstandard
dimension or those developing pressures in excess of
SAAMI (Sporting Arms and Ammunition
Manufacturers’ Institute) established standards.
Loading
WHEN LOADING YOUR RIFLE ALWAYS KEEP THE
MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION, ALWAYS
PLACE THE “SAFETY” IN THE ON SAFE POSITION AND PLACE THE HAMMER IN THE REBOUND
POSITION. KEEP YOUR FINGERS AWAY FROM THE
TRIGGER. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE WARNINGS
COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
­19
DO NOT CARRY YOUR RIFLE WITH A CARTRIDGE IN
THE CHAMBER TO AVOID ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE.
WHEN FIRING IS NO LONGER IMMINENT, MAKE SURE THE “SAFETY” IS IN THE ON SAFE POSITION,
UNLOAD THE CHAMBER AND MAKE SURE THE
HAMMER IS IN THE REBOUND POSITION. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE WARNINGS COULD RESULT IN
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.

CARTRIDGE CASE WITH THE RIFLE LOWERED AND
THE ACTION DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE, IT
IS POSSIBLE THAT THE EJECTED CARTRIDGE CASE
COULD STRIKE YOU IN THE FACE, OR STRIKE A
BYSTANDER. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS WARNING
COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY.
When an empty cartridge case is correctly ejected
it will fall to the ground in an area behind and to
the right of the shooter.
6. Close the action by returning the finger lever
upward. The closing of the action will transfer
a new cartridge from the magazine to the
chamber, leaving the hammer in the full-cock,
ready-to-fire position.
If you wish to continue shooting, repeat steps 3-5.
If you are finished shooting go immediately to
step 7.
You may continue shooting until the magazine
is empty, at which time you will need to either
reload the magazine with cartridges (if shooting
is imminent), or fully unload your rifle (if shooting
is completed).

Unloading
WHEN UNLOADING YOUR RIFLE ALWAYS PLACE
THE “SAFETY” IN THE ON SAFE POSITION. KEEP
THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION AND
YOUR FINGERS AWAY FROM THE TRIGGER. FAILURE
TO FOLLOW THESE WARNINGS COULD RESULT IN
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
ALWAYS INSPECT THE CHAMBER, BARREL, FEED
MECHANISM AND MAGAZINE CAREFULLY AFTER
UNLOADING TO BE SURE ALL LIVE CARTRIDGES ARE
CLEARED FROM THE FIREARM.
Completely unloading your rifle during storage and
other appropriate situations is essential to safe gun
handling. The “safety” on the Model 1892 is of utmost
importance during unloading. When the “safety” is in
the on safe position, it allows you to cycle the action
and eject loaded cartridges from the magazine with the
hammer blocked and unable to strike the firing pin.
1. Place the “safety” in the on safe position.
2. Swing the finger lever completely downward. This
will extract any cartridge from the chamber and
eject it. Capture the cartridge and return the finger
lever fully upward.
­25
3. Continue to operate the finger lever in the same
manner transferring all the remaining cartridges
from the magazine to the chamber and then
ejecting them out.
4. When cartridges no longer eject when you cycle
the action, further assure that no cartridges remain
by opening the action, depressing the carrier and
visually checking the chamber, feed mechanism
and magazine follower to be certain that the rifle is
completely unloaded (Figure 18, page 26). After
the last live cartridge is moved out of the magazine
and ejected, immediately lower the hammer to the
rebound position as explained previously.
Sight Adjustment
position on both elevation and windage), and then
make incremental adjustments to move the sight
blade and blade holder to position the group on
your target.
Up or Down Elevation Adjustments
Adjusting elevation on most Model 1892 sights
requires you to lift up the rear blade on your rifle’s rear
sight with your fingers and move the notched elevator
either forward or backward (Figure 19, page 27).
To raise point of impact, use your fingers to lift up on
the blade and slide the elevator rearward. Adjusting
the sight to make your gun shoot lower is just the
opposite, move the elevator forward.
•Move the rear sight blade and elevator up to
shoot higher on the target.
BEFORE ADJUSTING THE SIGHTS, PLACE THE
“SAFETY” IN THE ON SAFE POSITION. OPEN
THE ACTION AND MAKE CERTAIN YOUR RIFLE
IS COMPLETELY UNLOADED. KEEP THE MUZZLE
POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. FAILURE TO FOLLOW
THESE WARNINGS COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS
INJURY OR DEATH.
The Model 1892 is fitted with adjustable open sights.
The proper procedure is to shoot a group with the
sights set as they come from the factory (intermediate
•Move the rear sight blade and elevator down to
shoot lower on the target.
Right or Left Windage Adjustments
On most Model 1892 sights, the rear sight base is
dovetailed in the rear of the barrel. To adjust for
windage, gently move the rear sight base to the right
or left by tapping the sight base at the dovetail using a
wood or fiber dowel or hammer that will not mar the
sight (Figure 20, page 28).

Takedown Models
The Model 1892 rifle is also available as a takedown
model. These rifles have a mechanism that allows you
to separate the barrel/forearm half of the rifle from the
receiver half of the rifle. The takedown design utilizes
an interrupted thread system on the barrel extension
and receiver, and a special mechanism on the end of
the magazine tube which allows you to disengage the
barrel from the receiver. For terminology related to
the Model 1892 Takedown rifle refer to Figures 21-23
(page 29).
The full serial number of the rifle is located on the
receiver half of the rifle, on the bottom of the
receiver, toward the front. The last four digits of the

Cleaning and
Maintenance Suggestions
BEFORE PERFORMING CLEANING PROCEDURES,
PLACE THE “SAFETY” IN THE ON SAFE POSITION.
OPEN THE ACTION AND MAKE CERTAIN YOUR RIFLE
IS COMPLETELY UNLOADED. KEEP THE MUZZLE
POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION. FAILURE TO
FOLLOW THESE WARNINGS COULD RESULT IN
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
2. Use a cleaning rod with a tip and patch large
enough for a snug fit in the bore. Insert the rod and
patch into the barrel at the muzzle end and run it
back and forth several times. Care should be
exercised to ensure that neither the cleaning rod
nor the handle strikes the crown of the muzzle, as
damage to this area can adversely affect the
accuracy of the rifle. A muzzle protector can be
purchased separately from your local firearms
dealer to help protect the muzzle crown while
cleaning the barrel of your rifle.
WEAR EYE PROTECTION WHEN DISASSEMBLING
AND CLEANING YOUR RIFLE TO PREVENT SPRINGS,
SPRING-LOADED PARTS, SOLVENTS OR OTHER
AGENTS FROM CONTACTING YOUR EYES, RESULTING
IN INJURY.
KEEP ALL AMMUNITION AWAY FROM THE CLEANING
AREA. NEVER TEST THE MECHANICAL FUNCTION OF
YOUR RIFLE WITH LIVE AMMUNITION. FAILURE TO
FOLLOW THESE WARNINGS COULD RESULT IN
SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
Cleaning Procedures
Your Model 1892 will function better and more
reliably over a longer period of time if it is properly
maintained and kept clean. Clean your firearm after
each day of shooting and more often if it becomes
excessively dirty. A minimum cleaning includes
wiping down the action and oiling key parts. Regular
maintenance will also include cleaning the barrel.
If you encounter a function problem be sure to
give your firearm a thorough cleaning to see if it
solves the problem before seeking the services of a
Winchester Repeating Arms Authorized Repair
Center or our Service Facility in Arnold, Missouri,
or a qualified gunsmith.
If your rifle is a takedown model you may
disassemble it, as explained on page 30, for cleaning
and maintenance through step 7 on page 38
3. Inspect the chamber and bore for brass, copper and
powder fouling. A normal amount of powder
residue can be expected and is not serious. It can
usually be removed by repeating step 2, using a
patch saturated with solvent. If, or when, fouling
should become heavy, it can be removed with a
brass bore brush. Dip or spray the brush with
solvent and scrub the chamber and bore until
the fouling is removed. To prevent brass bristles
from breaking off, the brush should be pushed
completely through the bore before being
withdrawn. Your rifle will operate more smoothly
and reliably with a clean bore and chamber.
4. To maintain the utmost accuracy of your rifle it is
recommended you clean the bore with a copper
solvent. Modern bullet jackets are made mainly
of copper and zinc. Copper and zinc residue sticks
to the bore and require more frequent cleaning.
Swab the bore of your rifle with a good copper
solvent using the product manufacturer’s
recommended procedure.
1. Open the action by completely lowering the lever.
5. After fouling has been removed, wipe the bore dry.
Then pass a lightly oiled patch through the barrel
for preservation. A fine, light gun oil is
recommended. The barrel and action should be
inspected thoroughly to be certain no cleaning
patches have been inadvertently left in them.
­36
­37
6. The interior of the receiver and the bolt
should periodically be wiped with a clean rag.
Any dried oil in these areas or on the magazine
follower should be removed. Follow this
cleaning by applying a very light film of oil on
the affected parts.
7. Lightly oil your firearm at the points described
under “Initial Cleaning and Oiling” on page 13.
Ordinary good judgment will, of course, indicate
that the metal of the gun should receive a light
film of oil any time the rifle has been exposed to
weather or handling. Remember, the polished,
finely fitted surfaces of the receiver and action
mechanisms must always have a thin film of oil.
Make sure that the surfaces of the breech block,
lever components and feed mechanism parts
are especially clean and lightly oiled with a
high quality gun oil.
If your rifle is a takedown model and was taken
down for cleaning and maintenance, you may now
assemble it as explained on page 33.
NOTICE! DO NOT POUR LARGE QUANTITIES OF OIL
INTO THE RECEIVER OR OTHER PARTS. IT CAN
DRAIN DOWN TO THE WOOD AND SOFTEN IT,
CAUSING PERMANENT DAMAGE AND LOOSENING OF THE STOCK.
8. Wipe all exposed metal surfaces of the receiver,
forearm and barrel with a clean rag. Finger marks
should be removed because they provide a place
where moisture can accumulate. Any dried oil in
the receiver area should also be removed.
9. Inspect the barrel and chamber. Make certain that
no patches have been inadvertently left in them.
Remove any that remain.
10.The wood surfaces of your rifle can also be wiped
lightly with fine oil, or you can apply a quality
wood or furniture polish to the stock and forearm.
Using one of these methods (not both), will
enhance the beauty and durability of your rifle.
­38
Additional Suggestions
•When transporting your rifle, store it in a quality
protective case to prevent scratches and dents.
Store your rifle in a cool, dry place to prevent
corrosion. Store your rifle and ammunition
separately, away from children.
•After extended periods of heavy use, your gun
should be taken to a qualified gunsmith to have
the action disassembled for professional cleaning
and lubrication.
