1886 winchester  45-90, 7 leaf sight, options, documentation RARE!!  Guns > Rifles > Winchester Rifles - Pre-1899 Lever
Description: Serial # 10942X .45-90 WCF with a 26" barrel. Factory research lists as follows: Serial number applied May 22nd, 1896; Type: rifle; Caliber: .45-90; Barrel type: octagon; Barrel length: (We have researched this rifle with Jessica. There is a 28" listed, which is 2" longer than standard. The following entry is blank, which would indicate a standard 26". This offered rifle is listed as a ditto mark. Question arose as the ditto followed the blank, which would indicate a 26" barrel. The next 6 rifles in the order with seven leaf sights all list with 26" barrels. It is obvious that this rifle is all original with a 26" barrel with all proper measurements, and an actual copy of the shipping record will accompany rifle.) Trigger: Set; Sights: Seven leaf Express and Beach; Screw-eyes; Received in warehouse February 6th, 1897; shipped February 10th, 1897. The only feature not listed in factory letter is the full magazine, as this was standard issue. All other features of this rifle are as recorded. Standard finish for this era, which is not listed on letter, would be case colored. The barrel and tube are a lovely mix of soft blue with the patina blending, some light high edge wear with sharp edges and some usual minor age freckling. Barrel legend is sharp. Caliber legend stamped on left flat at breech due to special rear sight. Front sight is replaced. The frame colors have nickeled out with traces of origional case coloring.. The bolt retains approximately 80% of the original factory high polish blue. Express sights features the platinum center lines and are numbered one through six and the long range express sight has graduations from seven to ten. They are in excellent condition with no damage and the spring still exhibits fire blue finish. All screws are excellent with just some minor disfiguration. Loading gate spring has a replaced screw. It has the close set double triggers with the original sling eyes intact. The walnut stocks are excellent, all original, proud to metal with no cracks and usual surface abrasions, retaining generous amounts of the original factory finish with some minor age checking at comb. Action is perfect. Strong rifled bore with some very minor black powder abrasion. With the exception of the front sight and one replaced screw, the gun is all original, untouched, just as it left the factory in superb condition and is chambered for the second most popular caliber ever manufactured, the large .45-90. Probably the most difficult rifle to find today is the '86 with the 7 leaf rear sight. Please let me know if you have any questions on this piece. I do have 1 origional hook style Winchester swivel that goes with the rifle.
