HISTORIC AND IMPORTANT WINCHESTER MODEL 66 SADDLE RING CARBINE THAT BELONGED TO OLIVER F. WINCHESTER. Cal 44 RF Henry. Standard carbine with 20” round barrel, full magazine, integral front barrel band and sight, round barrel band, 2-position flip rear sight, brass receiver with staple and saddle ring on the left side and brass carbine buttplate with trap. Accompanied by a letter dated February 16, 1970 from the Winchester Gun Museum identifying this carbine as “Assembled July 1, 1876” and “Sent to O.F.W.’s house (probably Oliver F. Winchester)”. The letter further states that “It was returned put in good order and cleaned and shipped out December 4, 1890”, and signed by T.E. Hall. It is accompanied by a Cody Firearms Museum’s letter dated July 26, 2002 stating the same as above with the additional notation “up at the house {the main office building}”. Additionally, there is a printout of the actual shipping record on file at the Cody Firearms Museum which identifies this carbine and in the sold column and order number column instead of the date and order number it simply has “OFW”. Under the remarks column in the same hand, is “up at the house”. Then in another handwriting is “put in good order & cleaned Dec. 4/90-22194”. Additional research at the Cody Firearms Museum research office disclosed two additional 66 carbines under the same order as this carbine, in 1890. They were also “refreshed”. Also accompanying is a copy of Oliver Winchester’s will from the probate records of New Haven, CT. History records that Oliver F. Winchester passed away in 1880, leaving his estate to his wife with three administrators. One was his son, another a lawyer and the third his son-in-law, named Thomas G. Bennett. The son passed away not too long after Mr. Winchester’s demise and the lawyer was deceased in the late 1880’s, leaving Mr. Bennett as the sole surviving trustee. In 1890 Mrs. Winchester decided to sell out all the property and possessions and move to California. Almost simultaneously Mr. Bennett was appointed as CEO or the head of Winchester operations. Mr. Bennett was well known as a hard driver and efficient manager. It stands to reason that, in cleaning out the estate, he would have returned this carbine and any others found in the Winchester home to the factory to be sold to raise capital. SN 131554. CONDITION: Very fine. The barrel retains about 85% strong original blue with light scattered spots of fine surface rust. The magazine tube is mostly a plum-brown patina with spots of moderate to heavy rust. The barrel band retains about 60% original blue. The receiver is extremely fine with sharp edges, a few light scratches and a beautifully medium mustard patina. The screws retain generous amounts of their original blue. The lever is mostly a blue-brown patina while the hammer retains about 30% fading case colors. The buttplate is fine with a light mustard patina and the screws retain most of their blue. The forearm has a hairline crack at the tip otherwise the wood is sound. It retains a fine oil finish with light handling and use marks.

VERY RARE AND UNUSUAL FRENCH LEVER ACTION CENTER FIRE RIFLE. Cal. appears to be 44 American (44 American functions fine, 44 Russian and 44-40 are too long. Could be a European cartridge similar to the 44 American ). French attempt to create a lever action, repeating rifle based roughly on the design of the Henry rifle. Metal is iron with a 24” oct to round bbl that is either damascus or at least has damascus pattern with a small European style barleycorn front sight and a wide unfinished 2-leaf express sight on the top flat. The front sight is numbered 45. The forearm is rounded and about 7/8 length with a groove near the tip. It is secured with a single musket band with integral wire swivel and a corresponding larger swivel in the butt. The receiver is reminiscent of the Henry with a carrier that extends about 1/8” below the frame. The forward part of the frame has a loading system similar to the Briggs Patent System. The buttstock is more European musket in design with a semi-crescent smooth steel buttplate that has a long stepped top tang. The top tang has been filed and probably modified for a tang sight, which is missing. The bottom of the bbl, underneath the forearm is marked “LEOPOLD BERNARD CANNONIER A PARIS, 450 23177 1870”. It was featured in an article by C.W. Slagle in the fall 1992 edition of The Winchester Repeater magazine and is pictured on Pages 16 & 17 of Winchester, An American Legend by R.L. Wilson. It also sold as lot #776 in the May 20th 1998 Littlejohn auction. The Cody Firearms Museum currently has Oliver Winchester’s favorite shotgun in their inventory, which as made by Leopold Bernard and it is known that Winchester was friendly with Bernard. It is likely Winchester had some influence in the development of this rifle. CONDITION: Overall fine, bbl retains 60-70% plum blue with the damascus patterns showing through. The receiver has some light to moderate pitting on the left side and top of the receiver with the balance strong dull blue. Stock has a nicely repaired break through the wrist and a 1/2” x 2” area of fill. Retains most of an old refinish. Bore is bright and shiny, action is fine. 4-48473 JR3 (Dr. Ladd Heldenbrand Est.)

The Historical Society, at that time, was disposing of their entire firearms collection and Mr. Chernoff apparently had direct access and since consignor and Chernoff were friends, Mr. Chernoff advised him to buy this rifle.

“THE RIFLEMAN – CHUCK CONNORS” WINCHESTER MODEL 1894. Cal. 38-55. SN 33696. This saddle-ring carbine is in the configuration made famous by the TV show “The Rifleman”. The large lever loop was the trademark of Lucas McCain, the character played by Chuck Connors. This carbine was given by Connors to Alex Cord, an actor with whom Connors became close during the filming of “Synanon” a movie about drug rehabilitation in which Cord had the leading role. Connors also asked Cord to be the first guest-star in Connors’ new TV series “Branded”. After that episode was filmed, Connors presented Cord with this gun. A letter relating these events and signed by Alex Cord accompanies this fine piece of TV Western memorabilia. CONDITION: Mechanically very good. The metal is reblued, the forearm and wrist are coarsely checkered and has numerous handling marks. The comb is stamped “E. MARSH” – likely the name of the prop house that supplied guns to “The Rifleman”. The bore is strong and bright. 4-49011 (6000-8000)
