2017 WACA Featured Auction Gun


Deluxe Engraved Model 1886 Rifle
chambered in .45-90 WCF

As part of WACA’s 2017 fund raising efforts, we are offering a unique rifle for auction at the WACA Member Reception held after our Annual Membership Meeting at the Buffalo Bill Center of The West in Cody, Wyoming on July 14, 2017.  Our Canadian members are also invited to participate in an Absentee Bid program that will compete with live bidders.

WACA and Turnbull Manufacturing have teamed-up  to create a new Deluxe Engraved Model 1886 Rifle chambered in .45-90 WCF, with beautifully crafted fancy American walnut stocks, expertly hand checkered in “H” factory pattern at 24 lines per inch by Turnbull’s in-house stock maker.

In addition to Turnbull’s generous participation, master engraver John Pease graciously donated his work to engrave this rifle in Winchester Style 10 factory pattern replicating the way it would have looked in the 1800s—a real talent as the originals have their own look and feel in contrast to much of the contemporary engraving seen today.

The receiver, lever, hammer and forend cap are color case-hardened using the original Winchester bone and charcoal process.  The barrel and magazine tube are rust blued just like the originals were.  The result is a deluxe rifle closely duplicating the look and feel of an original Winchester 1886.  Included is a beautiful gun case donated by Negrini.
