1892 Taylor’s Huntsman Carbine 16″

WINCHESTER, Va. — Taylor’s & Company unveiled a new lightweight carbine built with speed and comfort in mind. The 1892 Taylor’s Huntsman was constructed like a traditional lever-action rifle but with a few modern twists.

The most notable features of the 1892 are its manageable size and upgraded sights. The Huntsman now boasts high-visibility fluorescent front sights and deluxe Skinner rear sights.
These improvements make the carbine great for not only recreational shooting, but also for hunting, according to Taylor’s Senior Account Executive JC Henkel.

“The 1892 Taylor’s Huntsman is a lightweight, fast-handling lever action with a modern twist,” he said. “It’s a great hunting rifle for anyone looking to stay with a traditional lever-action platform with an upgraded sight package.”

Upgrades such as the rubber recoil pad and lighter weight were made to provide end users with a comfortable shooting experience and a perfect companion rifle.

  1. Yes I might try one, I would probably try the 357 or 44 mag since I have reloading supplies for both, some gun manufacturers say shooting reloaded ammo voids the warranty, if yours is that way, you don’t ever have to worry about me purchasing one, I been reloading for about 40 years, never messed up a gun and me with every thing to load for it and I have 4 reloading presses, and I wanted to see some kind of price.

  2. I do have a Win 94 in 30/30 cal. but i’m not sure if I want to change cal. I also have a Ruger 44 so it might nice to carry the same loads for both.

    • Before reading the comments, I thought to myself, wow – $1273 for a lever gun. I’ll stick with my AR15 with my green laser sight and scope – can’t beat it – 1″ groups.

    • The new production Winchester is manufactured by Howa of Japan and it utilizes an ugly safety lever on the rear tang of the receiver. The Taylor/Uberti are reproductions of John Browning’s Model 1892 Winchester.

  3. I’ve owned a “a spaghetti lever” in .38/.357 for several years and am very happy with it.
    It cost about 1/3 of the Taylor. SO?

  4. Henry does a nice job with lever action carbines. We love our .44 Big Boy Steel. My understanding is that Winchester is not made in America anymore. Now our Henry takes a place next to our old Winchester in the safe. If Winchester ever brings it home, I’d give it a look.

  5. Taylor’s makes good guns with a lot of attention to detail, or at least they used to. When I was a SASS competitor, Cimarron, Navy Arms and Taylor’s were favorites among the Italian guns. From the Taylor’s site, it looks like this one is made by Chiappa and holds 7 rounds. If so, that pretty much eliminates it from Cowboy competition. But with the double locking lugs, you might be able to load some pretty hot loads for hunting, which the 66s and 73s were not designed to handle. Anyway, with regard to the price, which is MSRP, not actual selling, I don’t think it’s too bad.

  6. Id buy the Henry for sure. Way over priced! It would take a lot to beat the Henry. Quaility is the best in the industry. Customer service sets the standards.
    Good luck on this one!

  7. I’d like a pistol caliber carbine, but the cost. Why do they cost so much more than a more traditional 30-30, I don’t understand. And this one it’s twice, the Rossi, Henry and similar models which are a couple of hundred more than a 30-30. It’s not that special. Why can’t we get a pistol caliber carbine in the $400ish range.

  8. Jaybo1 you haven’t priced a new Winchester lately. I like the combination of old world styling with newer sights and recoil pad for a 44 mag carbine.

  9. I’m fully satisfied with my Marlin 1894…chambered for .44 magnum in stainless and walnut. BEAUTIFUL…(but kicks a bit like a mule)…

  10. Seems like a lot of money for a Chiappa. I bought a lightly used Winchester 94 AE trapper model 30-30 for $400, added a Skinner rear sight and a fiber optic Marble sight.
    I think the Winchester is a superior rifle.

  11. The light weight combined with the slick as owl snotty action make this rifle awesome to shoot, whether for competition or taking down a 400 lb hog. The .44 magnum pairs well with my Ruger for disagreeable hogs.

  12. It does seem like a of money , I think the orginnal Winchester 1892 chambered in 45LC that is in fine working order will do just fine.

  13. Agree with previous response this seems like an over inflated price for no more than it is
    I am currently looking for a 357/38 lever gun but I do think I will look at Henery or tarus even. But who knowes y’all might see these post and rethink the value of ur product
    Any way good luck. Great concept

  14. it looks like a real nice rifle but its really pricey.i just bought one of the new henry 327 federal rifles.the caliber is equal to or maybe somewhat better than the 357 and i`m saving about 500.00 dollars.i own a couple of the taylor single action revolvers and i do enjoy using them.they are quality products.i like the 92`s but i`m balking at the cost.

  15. I own a Henry steel ,38/.357 and got a great deal NIB for $700.00
    Finely crafted- made in the USA.
    Shoots accurate no jam up’s. I’m not saying your product is not up to scale with craftsmanship.
    However, I think the price gouging is a on the high side. Really? $1,273.00 plus tax? I would hold off on purchasing a rifle like Taylor’s.

  16. Not for that much money I won’t!! I will put my money into a couple of the Henry rifles first!! Very accurate and reliable firearm for little more then half the money!!

  17. For a $1200 lever gun I would expect something almost revolutionary that I couldn’t find anywhere else. A common pistol caliber carbine in a design that almost anyone can replicate reliably for almost double the price of it’s nearest competitor is not a good combination.

  18. Over $1200 for an imported Lever Action? Chiappa sure is proud of thier stuff. Guess they think no one does it better than they do.
    Sadly, someone does do it better, and they build them right here in the U.S. They also build them for HALF THE COST! Think about it. If we all stop paying over inflated prices, the prices would come down.

  19. For $1200 you can keep it in the showcase. For that kind of money I would purchase a Henry rifle made in the USA and still have money left over to buy something else.
