…1914 production Carbine?

Winchester introduced the serrated steel style shotgun butt plate in June 1924, and it was the standard butt plate on the Models 53, 54, and 55.  It became an optional butt plate on a few other models (namely the Model 94 Carbines) at the same time, and then became the…

…Gunbroker and noticed an 86 with a stainless barrel. Legit? If so how many of these were made? 

  

That is the (1) of (8) late production Model 1886 rifles that has been surveyed with a Stainless Steel barrel, and Yes, it is legit. 

While Stainless Steel barrels are not common, they are…

…not exactly rare either.  The term "uncommon" is a more accurate analogy.  Thus far, all (8) the Model 1886 rifles that have been identified are in the 155768 - 158656 serial number range.

…t see enough of the rifle to draw any conclusions... what is the serial number on it?

The 20-inch "carbine" variation of the Model 64 is the least common variation, and especially so in caliber 25-35.  Of the 3,301 Model 64 rifles I have documented thus far (in my research

…everyone, 

I have a few books on the 1885 and 94 Model, as well as 76 (Houze)...

I wonder if there is a book on the 1886 available, too? I would love to read about not only tech data but even more

…your description, it is a late production "Eastern" Carbine, and in typical condition.  The bluing on the receiver frames flaked terribly on the Model 94 Carbines and Model 55 rifles manufactured from 1924 - 1932, and in many cases, it is nearly 100% missing.
