Description

Spectacular Winchester, Model 1886 SRC, .40-82 WCF, MFG. 1895, Antique SN: 98XXX, Lever Action Saddle Ring Rifle, 22'' Round Barrel, full mag., Wood stock is excellent, retaining 98% of finish, very few tiny blemishes. Wood fit is excellent & proud to metal. Wood has never been sanded or refinished. Metal shows nearly 100% blue on the barrel & mag, The receiver, lever & hammer present vivid case color with very limited thinning in the carry areas. Barrel address, caliber markings & serial numbers are sharp with not wear or rounding of edges, Bore is excellent, bight with sharp lands & grooves. Factory carbine ladder sight & front sight. This rifle looks virtual mint & presents as factory original. It comes with a two page hand written letter from George Madis where he writes ''I have carefully inspected this fine and rare carbine and have determined it is all original and made by Winchester.'' He goes on to say ''all markings are clean and correct and original.'' Also, ''both sights are correct and original...saddle ring and its retaining staple are correct and original.'' He also discusses the rarity of this rifle saying that only 4% of 1886's produced were carbines. Of this number, about 20% of carbines were made in 40-82 caliber. Thus putting total production of 40-82 cal. 1886 carbines somewhere around 2400 guns. Madis concludes his letter stating ''Because of the unusually fine condition, age of over a century and originality, this is a fine collectors Winchester and it deserves a prominent place in any collection or museum.'' While the carbine presents as factory original & near mint, and Madis authenticates it as factory original in every way, it did visit Doug Turnbull's shop in 1997 with a work order to address metal. Any work done was magnificent & obviously matches Winchester factory standards. It would be a great fit in any Winchester collection.* No FFL Req. - Value: 7500 to 25000
