I have been wanting and looking for a new Winchester1892 rifle for some time that would fit into my budget. I would have liked one of the Italian replicas or one of the new Winchester Miroku rifles, but prices have kept me at bay. Finally, I found a Winchester Miroku short rifle in .45 Colt. It is a great little rifle to add to my modest lever action rifle collection. I haven’t had the opportunity to get to the range to shoot it yet as it has been wet and cold but hopefully before too long. It looks as though it has been shot very little. No wear anywhere.

Is the picture of your rifle or a stock photo? The reason I ask is that the picture looks to be of a Model 92 rifle with a 24" barrel, not the shorter, 20" barrel on the Short Rifle.

COSteve, It is a photo I took of the rifle I purchased and it is a 20" barrel.

Probably looks like that because the forearms are shorter than the originals and also the Rossi short rifles.
