Winchester 1886 in 40-65 WCF, Round Barrel, Shotgun Butt, ANTIQUE, Made in 1887  Guns > Rifles > Winchester Rifles - Pre-1899 Lever
Description: This is a fair old 1886 in .40-65 WCF, made in 1887 (serial #5851), the second year of production. It has a round 26” barrel and shotgun butt stock. The bore is somewhat rough but shootable with visible rifling and even, shallow pitting from black powder. The case colored receiver is lightly and evenly pitted from rust, with no case color remaining. The barrel and magazine are evenly rusted overall with some slight blue remaining visible. The action is tight. The lower tang shows a lot of blue, and may be refinished or came on another gun. I would speculate that the butt stock is a replacement as well as the magazine retaining band - also probably several screws. But all metal appears to be original Winchester, whether or not it was all born together. The good news is it old enough to be an antique, so no FFL is needed to ship. No letter or box accompanies the gun. That's all I can tell!
