Low Wall 1885 22WCF  Guns > Rifles > Winchester Rifles - Pre-1899 Bolt/Single Shot
Description: NEW LOWER PRICE !! This is an original Win. 1885 Low Wall which was a Winder Musket converted to center fire 22wcf by well know gun smith, RF Sedgley, some time in 1930,s. Bbl is likely original and slugs at 0.224 which makes it a 22wcf cal. Due to fact that there is a coil spring action...not found until later models...it is likely made some time after 1918 so it is good nickle steel and can handle somewhat hotter loads There is no serial number as the tang was extended at the time of conversion. It will chamber Hornet brass with some difficulty but should use 22wcf brass available from Buffalo Arms in Ponderay Idaho. Hornet brass could likely be trimmed and work fine. I have shot mild Hornet loads but mostly hard cast gas check bullets which it likes best. Bluing on the receiver is very nice...bbl fading in spots. Other pics avail on request. Mould incl. This rifle has some plugged holes in the bbl and crown is less than excellent but will hold MOA at 100 yards. Some esthetic damage to parts of the receiver. Not a collector piece but darg good shooter.
