Here we have a very special order 1886 Deluxe rifle in the desirable .45-90 caliber, complete with Cody letter documenting the special-order features. What a gorgeous, untouched, high factory condition Model 1886, made in 1892, antique, sn73210. Shipped with a highly-figured flame and fiddleback, 3X checkered pistol grip stock, 26” half round, half octagon barrel still retaining excellent sharp rifling, factory sling swivels, button style magazine tube, Lyman #4 special ivory hunting front sight, style 22 rear sight with peep aperture, crescent butt, and standard trigger. Most exciting is the condition of this gun, with 95% fading factory case color on the receiver, 97% strong factory barrel blue with only minor loss on the sharp edges; forend cap, lever, and hammer retaining case color and turning patina; loading gate and bolt retaining 96% factory blue, wood retaining most all of its original finish and checkering still strong with a little wear to the borders. No cracks or repairs anywhere, excellent screws…everything just the way you like to find a Winchester Deluxe rifle. Overall condition of this Deluxe rifle is a factory original 90%. You will note that the rifle shipped in 1892 in caliber .40-65. The third line from the bottom tells us that the rifle was returned to the factory for a work order #31972 in July of 1899. Unfortunately, Cody Firearms museum does not have info on this work order document to know with certainty what was done, but it is safe to assume the barrel was changed out to the more popular and desirable .45-90 caliber at that time. Everything still matches the letter…barrel configuration, magazine, etc. The barrel is the factory barrel, installed by the factory. Having the rifle in the hands of an experienced Winchester lever guru wouldthe same answer. All evidence says it is so. You don’t see them like this very often and these high condition Deluxe rifles with interesting options such as this one have continued to go up in value and there is strong collector interest. What a great investment quality rifle that you can actually carry afield and take any North American large game animals. Ammunition is readily available pushing a 300 grain bullet along at about 1700 f.p.s.. Talk about history and romance attached to a great rifle! Can you imagine where this gun has been and the game it has taken? The dangers it may have faced in the American West? We are offering this gun at far below Blue Book value so don’t let this one get by you. Thanks for looking.
