This is an exceptionally nice all original Winchester Model 1886 rifle manufactured in 1895 in the "45-90" cartridge with a full octagon barrel and full length magazine tube. This beautiful rifle is accompanied by a Winchester letter dated Dec 2002 that verifies the exact configuration of this rifle. The top barrel flat is marked in two lines: "----MANUFACTURED BY THE----/----WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN. CONN. U.S.A-----", with the breech end of the barrel marked "45-90 W.C.F.". The 1884 and 1885 patent dates are marked on the lower tang behind the trigger with the serial number towards the rear end. The barrel is equipped with the Winchester half nickel sporting front sight and a Winchester adjustable buckhorn type rear sight. Standard walnut buttstock, crescent buttplate and walnut forend with steel nose cap. Blue barrel, magazine tube and bolt with casehardened finish on the remaining metal surfaces.

Very fine with 90% of the original blue finish on the barrel, magazine tube and breech bolt with 30% of the factory color case hardened finish on the receiver, hammer and loading lever. The stock and forend are both in very fine condition with 75% of the original Winchester factory varnish with the sides of the stock showing very minor handling marks with some old minor varnish added/touch up on the sides of the forend. The wood to metal fit is excellent and tight. A very nice all original late Winchester Model 1886 rifle.
