This is one of the limited Series Winchester Model 1885 High-Wall .45-70 Single Shot BPCRs. It is NIB (New-in-Box). Only 125 rifles were made. This rifle is serial number 95. The fit and finish is excellent. The rifle features a heavy ½ octagon ½ round 30” Badger barrel. A brand new rear soule sight and spirit-level front sight are included. Made by Advance Manufacturing Technology (AMT), they are identical to the sights found on the Browning BPC rifles, but are not embossed with the Browning name. The rear sight comes with 3 eyecups. There are 8 inserts for the front sight. The rifling twist rate is 1 in 18. The rifle is identical to the Browning .45-70 BPCRs, but with a high gloss blued barrel finish rather than the Browning matte blued finish. The front top of the receiver and rear of the barrel are drilled and tapped to install scope bases if desired. On a highly accurate postage scale the rifle weighs 11lbs 8.2 oz with the sights and eyecup installed. It will be shipped in the original factory box with the rifle owner’s manual. I will need a signed copy of your dealer’s FFL and will only deliver to the address on the FFL. Shipping and handling is $50, 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.
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.

Please note that I do not accept returns on new firearms, but, if found defective, the rifle comes with a factory warranty and an extended (lifetime) warranty from Davidson’s. Also note that I personally check each firearm for obvious defects prior to shipping.
I specialize 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 with one exception. The photo of the front sight is shown mounted on a matte blued barrel, not the gloss blued barrel of the actual rifle.
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.
