Known as the gun that won the west, the lever action repeating rifle is an icon of American design as its best. Inventor John Browning took his lever action design from the drawing board to a working prototype in just two weeks. An outstanding achievement considering the lever action rifle was far superior to the breech and muzzle loading rifles of that time and is still produced to this date. While it may look antiquated compared to rifles of today, on the wild frontiers of the 1800s the lever action was one of the most advanced and feared rifles of the period.

During the 50s and 60s the Model 1892 was immortalized by legends of the golden screen such as John Wayne and Chuck Connors who carried this rifle in dozens of films. And now, with this gas powered replica by BRAVO, you have the chance to grab your own airsoft 1892 lever action.

This hansom replica is constructed with all metal components giving it a realistic weight of 5 pounds which is just shy of the real 1892. Its buttstock and forend are molded from polymer but feature a nicely detailed wood grain pattern. The overall detail on this rifle is quite impressive in both appearance and function. You will find such things as the lanyard loop, brass colored butt plate and even a fully functional rear leaf sight. Racking the lever action cycles the bolt just like the real deal and even sounds very similar to cocking a real lever action.

Loading the rifle does require the included loading tool however you do still load through the rifles loading gate on the right of the receiver through which you can push up to 25 rounds into its internal magazine. Gas is loaded into the front of what would be the real rifles tubular magazine after first removing the plug by twisting it a half turn in either direction and pulling it straight off.

When we first tested this rifle we thought that perhaps our chrono was on the brink. But, after testing a few more rifles we found that they actually do shoot that fast. Yes, using green gas, a .2g BB will clear the muzzle at a blistering 530 fps and even a heavyweight .4g will average 440 fps. With this kind of power the 1892 will be pretty much limited to target practice. Although, when charged up with lower pressure HFC134a it was averaging a comfortable 370 fps w/ .2g so with this you would still be able to field the rifle for skirmishes. The rifle is equipped with an adjustable hop-up system so it is capable using a wide range of BB weights, however we do not suggest using anything lighter than a .28g to maintain good accuracy at the high velocity this rifle is capable of producing.

If your inner cowboy has always wanted a blue steeled beauty, or if you simply enjoy ripping soda cans to shreds with a high powered rifle, the BRAVO 1892 is one rifle which you should not pass by.

(Please note: Since this is a mass produced rifle you may see the occasional cosmetic blemish in its finish.)

    5 out of 5- Beautiful, shoots great

    This is a great shooter amplified by it's nostalgic value. I'm a big fan of the lever actions. I've owned several in real steel. Hovering at around the advertised 500fps, this piece is only suited for sniper use if in the field. If you're like me, and you give your airsoft firearms a lot of range time on targets of all types, then go for it. This little beauty tears up soft drink cans and water bottles with ease.
    The only reason it didn't get 5:5 is because there are no manuals to speak of for this fine rifle. There was none in the box, and I can find nothing online. I had to find the hop up myself (not difficult) and learned the rest of what little I could find by zooming in on pictures of what looks like a manual in Japanese. There were lots of pictures.
    I also found a nice video on YouTube, but I have some cautions about it. The presenter talks about the movie-style "spin cocking" of this rifle. DO NOT TRY THIS!! This rifle was not designed for this and you will hurt yourself or damage the lever. Also, the saddle ring is not a sling swivel. It's simply a cosmetic item for realism. Saddle rings were used to keep rifles from bouncing out of scabbards while riding, not for holding the weight of the rifle in sling carry.
    Oh what the heck, I'll give it 5:5. It's a great rifle.
