Hey Adam, The '92 was sort of an accidental purchase. My primary collecting interest is in Remington police and the U.S. martially marked Winchesters (from the Hotchkiss to the Model 70 Van Orden sniper). The little Trapper is a 14" in .38-40 from 1912 ... a good little shooter. I also have a 5 1/2"...
