Special model designed for the New Zealand market with a stainless Nickel finish. A favorite rifle for New Zealand bush hunting; ideal for pigs over dogs, nice and short. Using the faithful 1892 Winchester action, the Italian Chiappa factory has made a beautiful modern version.
Designed by John M. Browning to replace the Model 1873, the 1892 Winchester 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, it was found to be mechanically stronger and cost less to produce than the '73, with a total 1,004,675 manufactured from 1892 through 1941 in both solid and takedown variations.
The Model 1892 is the epitome of an easy shooting lever and saddle gun. Simplification of the elevator and feeding system gave the 1892 a much smoother action than previous models. This makes 1892 replicas very popular with Cowboy competitors. Chiappa has developed this line of lever-action for the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting.
The most attention has been paid to the internal parts treat are CNC machined from solid steel, all are interchangeable with each other, screw thread in inches not mm, all parts highly polished and hardened to allow the smoothest action.
