    1892 Winchester Markings

    I'm curious as to if anyone knows what the numbers stamped on the barrel bands of an 1892 that was manufactured in 1902 are. It also has "China Navigation Company" stamped on the barrel and on the buttstock.

    I believe it's a British proof mark...at least from what I've read.
