Re: El Tigre Rifle
I would be interested in learning more about any license for Spanish manufacture of the Model 1892. It certainly did not involve Oliver Winchester, since he died in 1880, long before the Model 1892 was invented (by John Browning). As far as I know, "El Tigre" ("The Tiger") was an unlicensed copy of the Winchester 92, made y Garate, Anitua & Cia.
They are not bad rifles, but nowhere near the quality of the original Winchesters. I have seen some outrageous prices ($1800+) on auction sites. IMHO, no El Tigre ever made is worth that kind of money, but if I had one and could get that, I would take it.
