ROSSI MODEL 1892 RIFLES, CARBINES & "RANCH HAND"
The Winchester Model 1892 rifle was designed as a replacement for the 1873. It incorporated a much stronger action than the earlier lever action firearms of the 1860's and 1870's. Although Winchester phased the Model 1892 out in the 1930's, the Model 1892 has continued to be popular with Cowboy Action Shooters and hunters. EMF's 1892's are manufactured by the Brazilian arms maker, Rossi. By using updated materials and production techniques, the Model 1892's action is strong enough to chamber high pressure handgun rounds, such as .357Mag & .44Mag. While earlier rifles and shotguns actually "Won the West", the majority of lever action rifles seen in classic Hollywood Westerns are 1892 Carbines. These were famously carried by John Wayne in dozens of films, Clint Eastwood in "Rawhide", Chuck Conners in "The Rifleman" and Steve McQueen in "Wanted: Dead or Alive".
