… rare caliber for sure. I saw the 629 number in the Pirkle book. In the Summer 2018 edition of the Collector, there is a John Madl article on Model 1886 carbine research - he indicates a survey of all available 1886 records indicates 29 carbines in 40-70. You might want to do some research of the

Mine was blued, with a brass bead, or at least it looked brass. It was on an 1886 ELW that lettered with express sight(s). I trade it off last year but recalled taking those hots since I've never seen that express front sight

…where the rifle is likely going to take some significant abuse from the elements, a modern reproduction can step in. I use my Miroku/Browning Model 1886 SRC 45-70 if weather conditions are going to be bad or there might be risk of scuffing one of my old Winchesters. I bought it new when it first

…or affirmatively welcome for discussion folks with such wider Winchester interests.'

I like Miroku Winchesters work as reflected in my couple 1886 editions in 45/70.  From '92, a Browning Carbine.  Great model at expense of bit over-buffed deep shiny blue achieving "bit gaudy"!  Finish

There is another discussion thread on the gun - I think it was called "1886 GB Correct? Its a nice 86 - my guess is that it will go higher than where it is now. But, you never know - depends if 2 or more like it!

…to think is a crazy price is because of the caliber. A few years back when I decided to drastically scale back my collection and only keep one Model 1886, I chose to keep a deluxe 45-90, case hardened with a matted barrel. At the time I had a beautiful deluxe 50-100-450 which I had owned for 40

Thanks again everyone!  

There's a lot of fish in the sea.  However, if for example, you have your heart set on a Model 1886 in .50 caliber and a take-down version, and not have any refinishing done to the wood or metal, you'll be hard pressed to find one in your price

… "farm" were carbines.  As I've mentioned before, nearly all were .32 Specials but I do recall one .30-30.  

I never hunted with the 32 inch 1886.  I probably should have as I was strong enough to carry it back then

…barrel and not the round barrel?  Something "special" had to be done.  I just don't get hung up on the word special.  

In the case of the M1886, the round barrel rifle was a different rifle than the octagon barrel rifle - and they weren't priced the same.

…years. My 1916 catalog clearly states that shotgun butts (rubber or steel) or half magazines were available, "at no extra cost."  In the Model 1886, an octagon barrel was more expensive, but it was not listed as a special order or and option to choose.  Rather, it was simply a different rifle

Twenty-six Inch Round Barrel, Full or Half Magazine, Plain Trigger, Weight about 8 1/4 pounds...............…

…to determine what was standard equipment at the time the gun was made so we know what the records keeper was interpreting. for example the 1886 extra lightweight, i have one with a rifle butt and ledger says R butt.

  1873s and 1876s came standard with a blued receiver. The 1886 came standard with a case colored receiver until about s/n 122,000 when blue was standard. The exception was the 1886 take-down, it came blued

…was widely available.  It had a strong reputation and history of excellent performance.  It was (I believe) the most popular chambering in the M1886 during the 1887 to 1891 period.  And while it was dropped for four years - they kept the .45-60 and .45-75 chambering throughout those years.

This rifle is no ordinary .32-20.  

We know that the chambering often has a strong bearing on the desirability/value of a Winchester.  In the M1886, the .45 and .50 calibers are much more desirable than the .38 and .40 calibers (and the .33 caliber). However, as a generality, for special
