This Winchester is in overall very good +condition showing considerable original muted blue finish on the barrel and loading tube with the majority of the frosty nickel finish on the receiver and buttplate with scattered small spots of erosion from age. All metal surfaces are uncleaned. The bore is bright, the action crisp and the markings are sharp. The stocks are good to very good with a pleasing patina and some old scattered mars and scratches from carry and storage. The inlaid "WINCHESTER TRADE MARK" plaques on each side of the buttstock are good to very good with the right side plaque showing remnants of the original red letter coloring. The accompanying gun rig is in overall worn, but generally good condition with the holster's single loop displaying an old loss to the tab end of the buckling mechanism for the "loop." The Stetson hat is in overall very good condition. A nice untouched Model 1892 carbine with history to a TV Western produced during the pinnacle of TV shows of that genre with accessories, all worn by the star of the show and descended directly in his family to consignment.
