Chiappa Firearms 1892 Lever Action Rifle
Designed by John M. Browning to replace the Model 1873, the Chiappa Firearms 1892 Lever Action Rifle became one of the most popular lever actions of all time. It was based on his Model 1886, but reduced in size and chambered for the popular short cartridges used in the Winchester 1873. Simplification of the elevator and feeding system gave the 1892 a much smoother action than previous models.
While earlier rifles and shotguns may have actually 'Won the West', the majority of lever action rifles seen in classic Hollywood Westerns are Winchester 1892 carbines and rifles. The popularity and appeal of the Model 92 is quite easy to figure out. They are great for the Cowboy Action competitor, as well as for the outdoorsman who needs something light, handy and powerful.
The utmost attention has been put on the internal parts, CNC machined from solid steel, all interchangeable with each other, screw thread in inches, all parts highly polished and hardened to allow the smoothest action. All Model 1892s are available with fine hand engravings accented with gold inletting, or in the hard chrome finish that looks great as it resists the rigors of wear and harsh elements.
