MAGNIFICENT SPECIAL ORDER ENGRAVED BY JOHN ULRICH Winchester, Model 1876 DELUXE, .45-60 Cal., MFG. 1885, SN: 48662, Lever Action Rifle, 28'' round barrel, Full mag, The caliber is marked on the top barrel ahead of the receiver & on the nickeled brass block ahead of lever on the belly of the receiver. What makes this rifle especially unique is that it was special ordered with a round barrel despite the popularity of Octagon barrels, making it one of very few configured in this manner. The original factory deluxe, finely checkered pistol grip wood stocks are excellent & solid. The high grade wood displays beautiful flame grain & carries the majority of the original factory finish. The pistol grip carries a finely inlaid ebony insert. There is one very tiny chip to top left corner where the wrist meets the receiver & some minor scratches or handling marks. There is an area on each side of the forearm where there is a gathering of tiny contusions. The factory metal blue finish on the barrel is 85% & 65% on mag starting to display toning brown patina. The mag tube has small dent to near tip. The John Ulrich highly engraved receiver was patterned by special request as indicated by the letter. The nickeled receiver has 95% coverage with most of the wear to the underside of receiver. The engraved center vinaigrette on the left side is of a hunter shooting at two bull elk & a dogs head on right side. The Ulrich scroll engraving covers the rest of the receiver, dust cover, forend cap & upper tang, The lever & hammer display muted case-colors, with the rest toned to a smooth gray patina. The loading gate retain much of the original bright blue finish. Bore is very good, with strong rifling & some spotting. Factory metal shotgun buttplate as special ordered. Fitted with a 1876 marked rear ladder sight & a Rocky Mountain front blade sights. Action & original dust cover remain tight & function smoothly. Comes with a Cody Winchester Factory Records Letter confirming the originality of the current configuration. This very rare, Special Order Engraved 1876 Deluxe rifle by John Ulrich has great eye appeal & is highly collectible. By far one of the rarest Winchester Engraved & Deluxe Nickeled 1876 rifles.* No FFL Req. - Value: 80000 to 125000
