    Does anyone have one? How are they compared to Marlin and Winchester?

    The one I am referring to is in .44 mag.

    I have a Browning 65 in .218 Bee. It is a replica of the Winchester 65, which is really a model 92. The Browning 92 .44 mag uses the same action.

    Comparing the Browning 65 to my Winchester 92's, 94's, and one Marlin 1894, I can only conclude that it is better made, better finished, tighter, smoother, and more accurate then any of them.

    I have a B92, in 357 mag., as a companion for my Ruger 50th Anniversry.

    It will be handed down to my daughter when I'm done with it.

    Although I'll jump on a Winchester 92 or Marlin 1894 in 357 when I find one for a reasonable price, the Browning B92 in 357 and another in 44 mag is what I'd really like. Unfortunately, I've never seen either for a reasonable price.

    By the way your gun is beautiful and probably an excellent shooter.

    The Browning is a lot lighter but a lot of people complain that there is side to side slop in the lever of '92 models. Don't know if the Browning version ever suffered from this. Top eject means a scout style scope mount... but a cowboy gun doesn't really need a scope.

    And yes, that's one GREAT looking rifle!

    I have a Browning B-92 in .44 magnum. Bought it used about 1992. It has a few marks in the stock but nothing bad and looks just like the photos posted above.
    Mine is very accurate with .44 magnum and a real nice rifle; no side to side slop in the lever. The recoil is a little stiff.
    The only time I ever had a problem with it was with some UMC rounds which were not jacketed. Alloyed lead bullets. After a few rounds I started getting wicked flyers -- I mean not even hitting the paper when I could pretty easily hit the bullseye. When I got home, I discovered there was fine talc-like dark grey powder all through the action -- it was lead, from those *&&^%&&** bullets! :barf: I had to clean the sn*t out of it and spent a long time cleaning out the action and the barrel.:cuss: I gave away the rest of those d@mn UMC lead bullets.
    I have also found .44 special rounds feed OK and will shoot but are not as accurate as the magnum.
    But it is a pretty rifle with a nice slick action.:D

    You literally took the words out of my mouth. I'm sorry to say it, but it's true.

    After a brief affair with a Ruger .44 carbin in the middle 70s I bought a Browning 92 in .44 and put a Lyman receiver sight on it. It was carried on many a wild boar hunt in Big Sur and Salinas valley since. It never failed when called upon. It has some scratches but still works like new. I hve an original Winchester 32-20 and it is good, but not as nice as the Browning IMHO.

    Y'know, just waiting another day plus a week and a half longer before resurrecting this necrothread and it would've been a whole two years since it originally dried up. ;)
    ____________________
    The second rifle I had for CAS was a B92 in .44 Mag. Nice little carbine, but I eventually moved to other calibers for that game and rather shortsightedly let the gun get away for something else.
    Fast forward about 16 years and I'm currently preparing to go to the only cowboy match I'll shoot in this year, using a B92 chambered in .357.

    It's a Browning. Should there be any questions? (Maybe, how much more does it cost than a standard version of this particular firearm?)

    Hi All;
    I'm cleaning out the safe of guns that haven't been fired in nearly 20 yrs. I have a "new in the box" Browning B-92 Centennial in 44 mag that I'm selling. What might be a "fair price" for this???
    TIA Roddy
