Winchester 1892 SRC in 32-20

I shouldn't dare ask but I am.
The condition is no rust or pitting. round barrel if it was octagon I'd be posting pictures.
simply has the patina of a gun it's age
I like the idea of having a 32-20
Stock expected use dings dents but no cracks....probable refinished once.
Price was 950 ish which would be a tough scrounge but yet still doable.

Too good to pass ? or wait on something else.

    .32-20 in a lever gun is a hoot. Pleasant to shoot, accurate. Easy to reload, Starline has brass. I seen no reason not to buy it. Price sounds like a bargain for an original Winchester.
    I have and 1889 Marlin in .32-20, the first side eject Marlin.
    Then there's also the possibility of a .32-20 pistol to go with it!
    Please post pics!!

    Thanks Al
    He had an old Marlin with a receiver/tang sight on it too.
    Tag said 32 Winchester.
    I thought it was kind of an odd  combination.

    I had a 92 in 38-40.  It was a fine rifle, had the muzzle sawed off about an inch.  I gave it to my nephew.  It had been his father's before it was mine.  I gave my other nephew a Winchester Model 37, which I got when I was about 14 years old.

    Go buy it.  It’ll do nothing but appreciate in value while you enjoy the crap out of it.  What’s there to think about!!!

    paying for it for one.............LOL
    I do have ammo already but if I get it I will see if he will throw in a few boxes of his vintage stuff.
    I do have to check the bore also.

    If the bore is good that’s a great deal for a “real” 92!!!

    Thanks Brother............sounds like I should make a run for it then.
    Need something to shoot that ammo after all and a lot is rare rifle stuff

    According to current forum trends.
    It is a necessity.

    If the bore is terrible, that's a haggling point and you can always have it relined.  But I'd check.  Ammo can be hard to find.  My .310 Cadet will shoot .32-20 and I have a problem getting them.  .310 cadet ammo is expensive.
