Winchester 1886 OBFMCB 40-65 WCF - 1895 Antique No FFL Redq.  Guns > Rifles > Antique (Pre-1899) Rifles - Ctg. Misc.
Description: Fine vintage 1886 Winchester in rare 40-65 WCF caliber made in 1895. Only 11.6% of total 1886 production was in 40-65. 26 inch octagon barrel with excellent bore, sharp rifling from chamber to muzzle with no throat erosion, nice bright bore I rate a strong 8.5 to 9 and should be a fine shooter with cast or jacketed bullets. Barrel has full coverage of plum blue with sharp edge wear. The magazine retains more factory blue fading to plum blue on the bottom. The front sight is #21Winchester with German silver insert, the rear barrel sight is a #22 Flat Top. The magazine is free of dents. The receiver has faded case color to silver, it is mechanically excellent and tight, feeds, chambers and ejects smoothly. I have not test fired. The stock and forend are tight and solid, no cracks, chips, dents or extra holes and the wood around the upper tang is not chipped out as usually seen on the 86s. Overall I rate this 1886 60 to 65% finish condition with an excellent bore, hard to find in the old black powder rifles!

The 40-65 is a great cartridge and loaded ammo is available from Buffalo Arms. Reloading dies are readily available and brass is formed from 45-70 cases.
