    Original Winchester '92 Blueprint

    Thought you guys might like to see this.

    I ended up with some original Winchester blueprints, and this was one of them:

    So jealous!!

    Can you reproduce them? I would buy one.
    I would be even more interested in a 73

    I’ve always wanted to frame a ton of the patents and blueprints of my favorite firearms to decorate the house. The wife isn’t opposed either.

    Thanks! I ended up with about a dozen really cool original blueprints (including some workshop and pre-patent prototype drawings) and about as many less interesting ones (like blueprints for roll marking dies).

    I'm considering the logistics of reproducing some of them, but framing might be tricky, as the sizes are all over the place and not really any standard sizes. I guess back then the size of the blueprint was dictated by the size of the parts vs. standardized print sizes... This one isn't too bad, very close to 12x36. I'm waiting on a frame now so I can hang a copy of this one above the reloading bench.

    I don't have any '73 blueprints, but I'd love those too!

    My bet is the Cody Museum would be very interested in them, since they're originals.

    The workshop and prototypes sound really interesting. I believe Browning was thinking the 1890 would handle pistol cartridges, one patent I have sure looks like it was designed for a .45 Colt. It definitely isn't showing a .22 in the drawings.

    I've seen other patents which Winchester never produced, some were really cool too.

    The provenance is pretty solid.

    That museum in Cody, Wy. is unbelievable. Sure would be a good way to let others see 'em. Hanging 'em in your man cave wouldn't be bad either.

    Those are some cool prints. I've got some old prints on display in my gun room as well.
    Framing them will protect them but also make sure to keep them out of direct sunlight.
    You don't want to let them get faded.
