SPECTACULAR WINCHESTER HIGH WALL SPECIAL SPORTING RIFLE.

SN 57745. Cal. 32-40. This rifle, while not new, is barely shop worn. It has a case colored action with single set trigger. Bbl is 30″ long, half oct No. 3 weight. The bbl is fitted with a full length unidentified scope, not believed to be Malcolm. No markings on the scope were found. The scope optics and cross hair are there, but the scope needs cleaning. The forearm with the typical ebony insert is checkered and fancy wood was used. The buttstock is checkered and pistol grip style with ebony insert. It has a cheek piece and Swiss butt and uses very fancy American walnut, which matches the grain in the forearm. A wonderful early rifle made in 1892. CONDITION: Just wonderful. Scope finish shows just the slightest wear. The bbls bore is excellent. What little wear there to the bluing is on the sharp edges of the oct section. The action case color is brilliant with fading on the top tang, bottom tang and trigger guard. The buttstock and forearm finish shows the very slightest handling marks. The nickel plate on the buttplate is all there except where the buttplate would rest on the ground if the gun was leaned up. Just a spectacular early rifle. 50506-45 TWR (6,500-9,500) – Lot 4165
