thing. It has a short magazine tube( to the end of the fore end timber).
What would be the manufacture date & where can I get support to reassemble the action ( like an exploded view & hints) as I stripped it years ago & now am blueing the bits for reassembly.

Steeped in history and equipped with an octagon barrel and a straight-grip stock, the Winchester® 1873 Sporter Octagon Barrel Lever-Action Centerfire Rifle boasts a classic, timeless look and feel.
25-20 WINCHESTER MODEL 1892 LEVER ACTION RIFLE, SERIAL NO. 855623.
An Octagon rifle barrel is a 8 sided barrel, a Dodecagon is a 12 sided barrel. The flats on a Dodecagon are typically narrower in width. It is what we like to refer to as something that is halfway in-between a round barrel and an octagon.
Our old gunsmith makers of muzzle loading rifles almost invariably make their barrels octagonal, or eight sided in shape, most likely because none of them had a modern lathe with which they could turn them truly round, and they found it easier to make the barrel uniform by forging or grinding it into an octagon.
The Model 1892 incorporates a much-stronger Browning action that was a scaled-down version of the Model 1886. It was also a much lighter rifle than the 1873 model, with which it was sold concurrently for over twenty years, for the same price.
All Winchester over and unders in recent years have been made in our partner factory in Belgium with additional assembly work done in our factory in Portugal.
History. Most individual manufacturers habitually put serial numbers on the weapons they produce. Such numbers can be used to ascertain the name of the manufacture, place and date of manufacture. At least for some manufacturers, a serial number can unlock myriad details about the weapon.
Winchester`s Model 25 was a non-takedown version of their popular Model 12 shotgun that was offered from 1949 to 1954. About 88,000 Model 25s were manufactured in this period. SN 35324. Oliver Fisher Winchester was born on November 30, 1810 in Boston, Massachusetts.
The Model 1892 was chambered by Winchester to fire blackpowder pistol caliber cartridges (. 25-20 Win., . 32-20 Win., . 38-40 Win.
So the 16-inch barrel for most of us, and the 20-inch for those who genuinely need a long-range rifle.
In modern octagonal barrel manufacture, a large roundstock is drilled and reamed, and milled octagon, wasting a lot of material. This is to get the look of the old style barrel.
As many have said ,back in the day of hand made barrels it was easier to make an octagonal barrel than a round one. Another advantage of an octagonal barrel is its stiffness and weight. Because of the extra metal it`s heavier and the extra weight adds to the stability of the firearm.
Polygonal rifling (/pəˈlɪɡənəl/ pə-LIG-ə-nəl) is a type of gun barrel rifling where the traditional sharp-edged “lands and grooves” are replaced by less pronounced “hills and valleys”, so the barrel bore has a polygonal (usually hexagonal or octagonal) cross-sectional profile.
Why did early firearm barrels spread out at the end of the weapon? Guns that had the widemouthed barrel like that were called blunderbusses. The muzzle flared out like that as it made them easier to load with powder and shot. They were popular among Sailors and Marines on board ship as well as on coaches.
On a rifle, a bull barrel resists vibration better than a standard profile barrel. This makes the rifle more accurate, prevents heat build up, and also helps reduce felt recoil.
The modern 1892 clones with full length magazines, 16″ barrel models held 8 rounds, 20″ barrel models held 10 rounds and 24″ barrel models held 12 rounds.
The . 50-110 WCF (also known as the . 50-100-450 WCF , with different loadings) in modern 1886 Winchesters with modern steel barrels is the most powerful lever-action cartridge, with up to 4,000 foot-pounds (5,400 J) of energy.
Winchester`s manufacturing operations include a state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Oxford, Miss. and East Alton, Ill.
By the mid-1400s they were well into field gun use. Fast forward to the late 1980s, and modern Turkish firearms began making their way into the United States. Weatherby has imported their shotguns from Turkey for years. Winchester SXP pump action shotguns are now made in Istanbul.
A standard Winchester carbine is valued at a few hundred dollars at most, but these unique carbines that have a much-shorter than usual 15-inch barrel are worth a couple of thousand at least. For instance, this early 20th century model 1892 trapper recently sold for $7,475 at auction.
A Lever Action . 30-30 Winchester Is Still One of the Best Deer Hunting Rifles (and Here`s Why) Over its more than 125-year lifetime, the lever-action . 30-30 rifle has arguably killed more whitetail deer than any other single cartridge.
The Easiest Way to Identify a Gun Model Type

Long guns tend to have that information stamped directly on the barrel. Pick up a rifle or shotgun and you`ll see it, usually where the barrel meets the rest of the gun. Sometimes it`s on the right side, sometimes on the left.

The 1st three numbers of your serial number will always provide your manufacture date. The 1st number is the YEAR of manufacture; the 2nd & 3rd numbers indicate the MONTH of manufacture.
Model numbers or names are often stamped or engraved on the barrel or slide, often along with the Make. In some cases, the Model will also be represented as a prefix or other portion of the pistol`s serial number, or may be stamped on the frame in less obvious locations (e.g., under the grip panels).

HI!
I continually get code 90 (low/NO flow) from my 8111. I have disassembled, cleaned EVERYTHING, including the inlet port AT the pump (remind everybody to check this as stuff gets past the filter basket and will plug the pump inlet).

There is No air in the system and I get superb pressure at the outlet, yet I still get code 90. I again removed the flow sensor and put my ohm meter across the flow sensor terminals and activated the flapper and measured an open circuit. I used a heavier magnet to see if I could get make the internals of the sensor move to get an ohm reading, but I get nothing but an open circuit, ie: no measured resistance.

Can I simply bypass the defective flow sensor to trick the 8111 to think it has full flow without damaging the ‘brain’ of the system.?

Intex corp is useless at these questions. They have been out of stock on this sensor for months and are telling me “two weeks” for two months and now it’s “end of August” which I do not believe. Meanwhile I am making no chlorine while the 90 code is showing.

I love the 8111, this is the first problem I’ve had with it, and I’m frustrated that I can not get such an important part from them.

Thanks for listening!

ANSWER : Have you been able to find a solution to this problem. I am having the same issue.

I have the Intex Sand/Pump pool filter Model SF 20110. It’s been running real great for the last 4 months. However recently it has been tripping the internal overloads and I have found the pump motor to be very hot when I put my hand against it. I have tried several different solutions, such as a level ground platform that was clear of any obstructions, made sure that the motor vents under the motor was clear of anything that would prevent air flow. I used a non electrical type of lubricate on the impeller. When I would turn on the pump the rotor would not turn but only would hum very loudly and then slowly begin to turn. I also noticed that the motor’s rotor shaft would not turn to freely due the tightness around the rotor’s shaft. After using the lubricate the shaft would turn a little easier. I used an amp meter on the incoming voltage line and the motor would run at 4.5 amp. And yet it still overheated and tripped the motor overloads. I can only think that the motor is still not getting enough ventilation. I have check and cleared all the incoming lines and found nothing block the pumps input or output lines. Any suggestion?
ANSWER : I just looking into this issue my self. The pump cools itself by a internal fan, which is run by the motor. Well I took the housing cover off to find out all the fan blades have broken off and were setting in the base of the pump. Once you remove the fan blades from covering the air intake, it might be fine. I will find out my self once summer gets here.

The following is Wisner’s rendition & info on the subject.
The difference in the old firing pin and the new one is as follows. The old replaced
style, was totally lathe tuned (round). While the new recall style is similar in lathe
turning on the front and back, but in the front midsection it has two flats milled, one
on each side. This makes the center section stronger. Also replaced is the bolt sleeve
lock pin (firing pin guide) which was made to accommodate this different shaped firing
pin
Part number for the new parts are, firing pin =1391ND, bolt sleeve locking pin =1491ND
The word was at the time this recall was in process was that if the firing pin would
break at the mid section and still remain in the gun as two pieces, the possibility of a
premature discharge before the bolt was locked was possible. This apparently was caused
by the firing pin tip (now not having a retracting spring) to be stuck forward, and
thereby slam-firing upon chambering.
The responsibility for the recall apparently was on Olin, as they were the parent company
at time of manufacture. Olin set up regional recall centers at three established US
gunshops. There was a manufacturing delay in the replacement firing pins, and a backlog
occurred, also some collectors did not like the idea of shipping their guns long
distances. Olin then also authorized other gunshops to make the required alterations.
Upon completion of the recall, the shops were to test fire the firearm and to stamp an
assigned letter on the inside top of the receiver as seen thru the magazine well with the
bolt retracted. The letter “B” represented Bolsa Gunsmithing, “L” was Lefever, and “N”
was for Nu-line Guns. The letter “X” apparently was for all the other independent shops.
However this identification information did not get communicated to some of the smaller
shops at the start of the project. The only way to tell if the gun as been modified, if
the ”letter” is not present, is to take the barrel & action out of the stock, remove the
trigger guard assembly and the try to rotate the firing pin by twisting it. If it does
NOT rotate, then the firing pin recall HAS been performed.

I bought a Rio 30′ piece of sink tip T-11 which included 3 loop connectors. At the same time I bought extra loop connectors (4-6 wt). When I opened the sink tip the LCs had a very narrow end which opened into a slightly larger diameter nearer the loop. the ends are frayed.
My question is, do you have any hints as to how to apply the included loop connectors to my sink tip. I had no problem getting ther 4-6 wt LC and BTW, I tied a nail knot over the LC near the end of the sink tip line and super glued the collar place over the end of the LC where the line enters the LC.
