Re: Winchester 1892 - 218 Bee - Value?
What you have is a 1902 vintage Model 1892 that was originally assembled and sold as a 25-20 WCF. Winchester introduced the 218 Bee cartridge in 1937 for the Model 65 (which was a modernized Model 1892). The barrel on your rifle has the mail order proof mark stamp (P), which tells us that it was installed outside of the factory. If you pull the magazine tube and forend stock, you will find a 2-digit year number stamped on the bottom of the barrel right next to where it screws into the receiver frame. That will tell you when the barrel was made, and give you a close idea of when the barrel was replaced.
In its current condition and configuration, the value is minimal. Serious collectors will not be interested in it at all, and most of the "shooter" crowd will not want it due to the cost of the ammo. If you find someone who reloads for the 218 Bee, you might be able to squeeze $350 out of them for the rifle.
