Winchester 1886 Deluxe Antique Fantastic Untouched Survivor!!!

Item#: 1886 D
Asking Price: $9,795.00

Description:
This is truly a fantastic untouched Winchester Model 1886 Deluxe .45/70 special order rifle which falls in the desirable antique range. Gun matches the Cody letter perfectly including the special order sights which don't often appear in the Cody letter. Color case hardened receiver.
1/2 round 1/2 octagon barrel. Rare 2/3 magazine.

This rifle is fitted with fantastic highly figured & colored buttstock & forend, one of the most spectacular that I have ever seen on an '86 !! Factory Oil finish & hard rubber shotgun butt per letter.

This '86 has survived in far above average untouched factory original condition both wood & metal. The receiver, lever, hammer, trigger & forend cap were coated with a heavy shellac probably 100 yrs ago which has been cleaned off gently revealing generous original case colors. Some very light areas of discoloration/oxidation on receiver. Slight areas of shellac still on bbl & small areas of wood which has been undisturbed.
Wood is original, uncracked, unsanded and still retains oil finish with a beautiful hand rubbed patina. Fine original hard rubber buttplate.

Barrel & bolt still retains nearly all of their original factory deep rich bluing. One sport of blue has been cleaned with very light minor pitting adjacent to rear sight. Sharp markings. Special order sights front & rear. Bright bore with strong lands & grooves with areas of light pitting. A excellent bore for an antique 45/70!
Excellent original screws with only a couple showing evidence of minor misuse. (stock screw upper tang)

This gun is priced to sell quickly. Others would have it listed in the 5 figure range. Its a good one!
