SN 7584. Cal. 40-65 WCF. Winchester extra fancy rifle with deluxe checkered pistol grip, buttstock and forearm. Richly case colored receiver with 26″ oct bbl. Lyman front sight with folding tang sight. Case colored crescent buttplate, forend cap, hammer and finger lever. Manufactured in 1887, the second year of manufacturing for the Model 1886 rifle. Accompanied by factory letter confirming all this rifle’s special order features. CONDITION: Superb overall condition. Most all vivid case colors remain on receiver, hammer and finger lever. The factory applied lacquer still exists over most of the case colors and has turned to a slightly deft gloss. 26″ oct bbl retains virtually all finish with only a trivial loss on high points and crowns. Magazine is equally as fine with slight wear at muzzle end. The extra fancy deluxe walnut stocks retain most all of their period varnish with slight bruising from period use and are in exceptionally fine condition. The bolt retains virtually all of its bright blue as does the tang sights and trigger. A truly great example that would have a place in any great Winchester collection. 50506-47 TDW (25,000-40,000) – Lot 4112
