There's nothing unique about this Winchester Model 1886 Short Rifle except for just one thing: IT IS SERIAL NUMBER 1 (ONE)!
Otherwise, it's standard, round barrel 24" long, in .45-70, with straight grain fore stock and some nice grain in the butt stock. In all other respects it's just standard production .....except for the serial number! There's only one FIRST.
