John Browning Designed Rifles

Hi everyone, Almost all the rifles and shotguns in my gun safe are Browning designs. I just recently found a Winchester Model 1892, in 25-20, at my local gun shop, that was mfg. in 1911, that is in really nice original condition. It was priced at $1200 (which I can't afford). So, after doing extensi...
