This NIB rifle is one of the limited Series Winchester Model 1885 High-Wall .45-90 Single Shot BPCRs. Only 125 rifles were made. This rifle is serial number 49. The fit and finish is excellent. The 30” long 8-groove right-hand twist heavy Badger barrel has a bore diameter of .450”; a groove diameter of .458” and rifling twist rate of 1:18. Rifle comes with Winchester/AMT Creedmoor sights installed.
It is an “out-of-the-box” rifle ready for silhouette and long-range Creedmoor competition. It has a colored case-hardened receiver with a colored case-hardened shotgun-style butt plate to aid in reducing felt recoil, especially in the prone position. The oil finish stock and forearm are from grade III/IV walnut. The “vernier soule-style” windage-adjustable rear tang sight comes with three eyecups with apertures (hole) sizes of 0.052”, 0.064”, and 0.073”. The front sight is a windage-adjustable, hooded, globe-type, spirit-level designed for longer range shooting in adverse wind conditions with 8 inserts. The receiver and barrel are drilled and tapped to install scope bases. The barrel has a matte blued finish.
On an accurate postage scale the rifle weighs 11lbs 4.4 oz with sights installed. It will be shipped in the original factory box. I will need a signed copy of your dealer’s FFL. Fully insured shipping and handling via FedEx ground is $50.00 (CONUS only). Shipping to Alaska & Hawaii will incur an additional fee. NOTE – I SELL TO CALIFORNIA CUSTOMERS FOR NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
Acceptable methods of payment are US Postal Service money orders or a certified cashier’s check. A phone number is required to contact the issuer of a cashier's check for verification. Firearm trades are not acceptable payment. Texas residents are required to pay an additional 7.75% sales tax.
A layaway option is available for an additional $50.00. Layaway requires 1/3 down immediately, 1/3 in 30 days and the balance in 60 days. ABSOLUTELY NO REFUND ON CANCELED OR UNCOMPLETED LAYAWAYS. The rifle will be shipped after the final payment is received.
For an additional $65, in exchange for the original sear, a Lee Shaver modified trigger sear can be installed, reducing the 4 to 5 lb factory trigger pull to approximately 2 lbs or slightly less. For $60 I can provide a Cerrosafe cast of the chamber, throat & bore with all dimensions documented at the correct 1hr. time after the cast was made.
Please note that returns are not accepted on new firearms, but, if found defective, the rifle comes with a factory warranty. Also note that I personally check each firearm for obvious defects prior to shipping.
Specializing in Browning and Winchester M1885 BPCR's, I describe and display the rifles as accurately as possible and have not had a dissatisfied customer. As a seller of scores of Browning and Winchester BPCRs, and having written and published a book on the rifles, you can trust that each rifle, new or used has been fully checked out and is in the conditioned advertised. THE PHOTOS ARE OF THE ACTUAL RIFLE BEING SOLD.
You may desire to purchase a copy of my 272 page book along with the rifle. The book is titled, Browning Model 1885 Black Powder Cartridge Rifle. Since the Winchester BPCRs are identical to the Browning BPCRs the book also includes details on the operation of the action and complete disassembly and assembly of the Winchester BPCRs. With rifle purchase, the book price is $50.00 (discounted from $54.95), which includes shipping. Please contact me for additional book details and a link to my web site. Thanks.
Shipping and handling is $50.00 (CONUS only), which also covers full insurance. Shipping to Alaska & Hawaii will incur an additional fee. I only ship fully insured via FedEx or USPS Registered Mail due to several problems with stock breakage using other shippers and methods of shipment.
Sorry, no trades accepted.
Acceptable payment is a certified cashier's check or US Postal Service (USPS) Money order. A phone number will be required to contact the issuer of a cashier's check. I require a signed FFL copy to ship the firearm and will only ship to the address on the FFL. I do not accept trades. Will only ship to continental USA locations.
