This rifle has been partially & professionally restored & configuration matches the Winchester Factory Letter. The deluxe checkered pistol grip wood stocks are excellent, solid & believed to be original, although the underside of the forearm carries a stamped ''773'' which is the same number stamped on the underside of barrel, but two digits different than the last three numbers of the serial #. The stocks have fantastic grain, with excellent restored finish. The forend has the ebony inlay. Stocks have only a few finish level scuffs & minor contusions. The blued finish is 85% on barrel, with plum patina coming through in areas of thinning blue. The case-hardened receiver, lever & hammer have toned gray with dark speckling & some case-colors in protected areas of lever & inside action. The chamber been period re-chambered to modified 40-90 Sharps Bottleneck. Brass is easily formed from trimmed 45 basic brass. According to consignor, the rifle loads with good headspace, goes bang, extracts & set trigger all works. The bore is very good, with solid rifling, but dark with roughness. Mounted with an early graduated, slide adjusting, aperture tang peep sight, barrel mounted folding ladder rear sight & a folding globe front sight. Stock carries a Winchester black plastic buttplate with a professional toe end repair which almost goes un-noticed. Rifle comes with a sample loaded cartridge, 4 empty brass & a Cody Winchester Factory letter which validates much of the above configurations. This rifle has an appearance & remains collectible as a professionally restored deluxe 1885 rifle.* No FFL Req. - Value: 2000 to 4000
