My current and only 1885 HW SS made in 1887 is chambered in 45-60 WCF.

At one time in my basement gun cave sat an 1886 chambered in 50 EX along with a 1885 in 50-100-450.

If we could only  retain now what we let go THEN.

In my research on the Model 1892's I have seen another carbine marked on the left receiver side.  It was manufactured during 1917.  Please send me some images and the serial number and I will be happy to take a

While we're on the topic of M1886 .50 caliber smoothbores, the records show one .50-100-450 was made as a smoothbore.  What possible difference could there be between a .50-100

…of smoothbores, we know that Winchester made very limited numbers in various Winchester models.  Over the years, I've seen examples in the M1873, 1886, 1892, 1894.  Off the top of my head, I can't remember one in a M1876 (although vaguely I think I do) and I'm thinking I haven't seen one in Model

…ideas Steve. I just have had to think why would some one want or need a smooth bore rifle. I would love that 50cal on RIA but only because its a 1886.And I find it interesting that of the three 1886 smooth bores I have seen or heard about, yours being the third one , they were all take downs.

….  The smoothbores are interesting among collectors.  They are very rare, but a lot of collectors are not interested in them.  I had one once.  A M1886 .45-70 ELW, pistol grip, take-down, checkered (not deluxe wood) with a Lyman No. 21 (or No. 38 - I can't remember for sure) with no rear

This is my one and only. Cannot afford M1886's. I traded two very nice rifles for this 40-65. It is an antique and has lots of case and blue. Bore pretty good too. My FIL carried one in 40

I agree, there should be more than just one photograph, but what makes you think this receiver wasn’t originally case coloured?  It looks typical…

…Don Grove 1886 is a typo. It is actually a 40-65 and is in the current Ward's Auction.  Serial number and photo of caliber marking is provided in the Ward's link…

…m skeptical.  Not only that this rifle is in .45-60 - it's likely just a typo on the seller's part - but I am skeptical there was a M1886 made in .45-60.  I'm not saying it couldn't happen - and I do believe it is recorded in the factory ledger as such.  I think it is very likely…

…it is an error in the ledger.  For example (according to Al Pirkle's book) there is also one .38-72 and one .40-72 listed for the M1886.  Oh, and two .22's and one .22 long.  These last four cartridges I reference our clearly not special order rifles.  

Of interest, there are…

…six .38-55's for the Model 1886.  Six errors I suppose.  Either they were .38-56's or they were recording the wrong rifle (e.g. the single-shot model).  I'm very skeptical…

…there are any M1886 .38-55's out there.  There were also five .45-75's recorded for the M1886.  This is more feasible but I still believe the overwhelming probability is these are ledger entry errors.  I WOULD LOVE TO BE PROVEN WRONG!
