…also have an early SG that was formerly in vicvanb's collection, S/N 26401, as well as early pre-war and 1948 transition Standard Rifles and a 1938 Carbine.  Too many M70 Hornets, I know, but I'm still looking for that elusive 22 Hornet Target rifle...  And I wouldn't pass on a later one like Gary's

…nor is it checkered. The only ware on the gun is the two high points on the butt plate. Why would someone go to the expense of a restoration of an 1886 with No special features? DOM is 1893 and it is a cal. 50X nothing special.

Bob, Chuck and Tim thanks for your input.

…"In my book" a M1886 carbine in .50 Express fits easily into the, "something special" category.

Bert I have a 1894 .32 Special Serial # 1432816, could you please tell me what date of manufacture it is?

  

Your Flat-band Carbine was manufactured in June 1947.

The plain wood is a very good sign, but don't believe it's safe to assume restorations are confined to guns

I am looking at a Model 1886 Carbine to buy. It would be in "Like New Condition". So, I am not sure if it real or is it Memorex? That condition in an antique Winchester is very rare…

…indeed and even more so for a carbine. I have checked it against all the criteria I can find including Bert's tutorial on this site. I have been collection for 35+ years but have

Probably not many dealers back then selling "Loose" cartridges. Probably not many gun owners back then that owned both a Winchester Model 1886 and a Colt Lighting Magazine Rifle in 45-85.

…WCF case is not the same case that the Bullard .40-70 uses.  As I stated above, the Bullard takes the .40-65 case (.45-70 length) and the M1886 Winchester in .40-70 uses a .45-90 length case. 

There's an amazing number of cartridges that are covered by approximate three case lengths.

The Winchester M1876 series (all of these were available in the Whitney-Kennedy):

.40-60, .45-60, .45-75 and .50-95

The Winchester M1886 series (all of the below are chambered in the Marlin M1895 except the .38-70 and the .50's):

shorter (.45-70 length):  .38-56, .40…

…two different case length cartridges.  From the M1876 Winchester offering, the Lightning Express rifle came in .45-60 and .50-95.  From the M1886 series, the Lightning Express rifle came in .38-56, .40-60 Colt (really .40-65 Winchester) and .45-85 (.45-70 case)

 

Quite the…

…and familiarity.  There's very few of the cartridges mentioned above that I haven't owned a least one rifle in.  I've never owned a Winchester M1886 in .40-70 but I did have two Marlin M1895's in .40-70 (which is a whole lot rarer find than this chambering in a Winchester '86).

…is, but if possible some clarification on that would be nice. Basically are these on the low end of collectable since they are the last of the true carbines and lack of ring is not special order? Or will they shine in their own right eventually? Any speculations would be welcome. Maybe I don't know …

…1930, and 1931 was when Olin took over, might it eventually be worth more on that account?

It is a true…

…t believe no one answered you're original question.   Yes, that is the correct rear sight for an '86 carbine of that era.  I notice that is still has the spring in the slide.

P.S. I had a "friend" convince me that a post war Model 70  "Super Grade" carbine in 270 Win. that has "special fancy" wood was worth $10,000.00.  That still hurts!

…path.  It also sounds like you are focusing on the positives - you've shot the gun, it shoots well and it is a fun piece.  I've seen several 64 carbines with various alterations (e.g. reblued, sanded wood, extra tap holes) and this piece doesn't look like any of them.
