LG2263 This 1895 Winchester’s serial number, 238xx, dates it to 1899, only the fifth year of production. Quite possibly it saw action during the Spanish American War; at least it was manufactured during that historical context. Metal is, as the photos show, mostly a brown patina with possibly some original bluing still visible on the forward sections of the barrel. Note the alteration to the buttplate where a Blue Grass Hardware red pad was installed sometime around World War II, and the pad dates to that period. Otherwise, the rifle appears to be original. Walnut is good with some indications of an old refinish, probably at the time the pad was installed. Original buttplate screw is still intact atop the rear edge of the buttstock, and length of pull measures 13 1/4 inches from the trigger face to the end of the pad. Buttstock has small edge chip on the forward upper left side next to the hammer, and a larger one on the right side, as the photos show. Barrel measures 24 inches, just under that, and it does not appear to us to have been cut. Muzzle and bore shot photos ought to support us on that. This rifle is mechanically sound and operates as it is supposed to. Bore is fair, light even encrustation throughout but with prominent uniform rifling. We estimate that for $1,000 or so, this 1895 could be restocked and refinished to a point close to its original finish. We’re offering it for only $ 789.00.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $20 flat fee lower 48 states; $50 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, UPS Ground with full insurance coverage.
