LEVER AND PUMP ACTION—I would like to know whether it is possible to repeat the Winchester Model 1892 while held to the shoulder, and can it be fired more quickly than a pump action?
Certainly, any repeating rifle may be worked from the shoulder, in fact that is the proper way to learn to operate it. The Model 1892 is the easiest to operate of all the Winchester lever action rifles. A lever action rifle cannot be fired faster than a pump action, but it can be fired faster with aim, as the lever does not throw the gun out of line like the sliding forearm.
