Winchester Model 1886 45-70 Octagon Barrel c. 1896 ANTIQUE  Guns > Rifles > Winchester Rifles - Pre-1899 Lever
Description: This is a very clean Model 1886 in .45-70 caliber with a rapid taper, 26” octagon barrel and mirror bright bore with strong rifling. The stocks are solid with no cracks or splits and retain probably 90% of their original finish. The barrel and magazine show 60% original blue starting to patina. The receiver has scattered shallow pitting but retains some faded case colors. The rear sight is a 3-leaf express and the front is a gold washed Lyman-Beeches combination. This rifle was serial numbered January 16, 1896 (serial #107881) and went into the warehouse April 10, 1896, with shipment out on September 24, 1896. The record search form was obtained from the Cody Firearms Records Office at the Colorado Gun Collectors Show in May, 2019. You can see by the picture of the serial number that it was remarked after it was forensically raised due to previous damage to the surface of the lower tang.

If you are not aware, when you click on an individual picture, there are forward and back arrows in the upper left corner. If you click the icon between the arrows, you will get a great enlargement. We suggest viewing pictures on a full-size computer to take advantage of this feature.
