I just picked up a copy of Guns of the Old West the other day, and there is an article in it on the Riflemans 44-40. LSI is now producing a tribute copy of Chuck Conners legendary Winchester Model 92 rifle with, a price tag of $1,299.00. The Rifle is an Italian Made product of Chiappa firearms of Brescia Italy. (NOTE The screw through the lever that activates the trigger is non-operative.
Winchester Model '92 in .44-40. The Rifleman altered the lever with a bolt to make it fire faster when he worked the lever. Strange though, as the year listed, on the show, took place back in 1884, well before the year 1892 & before the '92 Winchester Rifle was manufactured. This is common with all old TV & movie Westerns.
