This is a Lever Action Taylor Model 1886 chambered in the 45-70 Government and has a 26 inch octagonal barrel. It has never been fired except for the factory test firing. It has a 8+1 under barrel magazine capacity, adjustable sights, dark hard wood finish, and military buttplate. It is in perfect condition with the exception of a single light scratch on the reciever, and because of the scratch I have dropped the price to what is in the listing. It comes with original box, instruction manuel and I am also giving two boxes (40 rounds total) of factory loaded federal Power Shok ammo for free. The reason for selling it is I bought it thinking I would like it and before I fired this weapon, I shot my friend's 45-70 and did not like the kick (I am a fairly small guy!!!). Am looking for a different weapon.

I am selling a Taylor model 1886 45-70 lever action rifle. It has a 26 inch octagonal barrel with adjustable sights and has a 8 plus 1 barrel magazine capacity, a 1 in 20 twistand a standard buttplate. It comes with original box and instruction manuel . The wood stock and grip is a dark colored wood that might be cherry or oak. This weapon has never been fired execpt for the factory test firing. It is in perfect condition with the exception of a single light scratch on the reciever. Because of the scratch I am dropping the price of the weapon from $1500.00 to 1350.00 and will throw in two boxes of ammo for free. The reason I am selling this weapon is I bought it thinking I would really like it and before I fired it, I shot a friend's 45-70 and almost broke my shoulder. So I plan to get a weapon with a lesser recoil. If you have any questions please let me know and
