I'm interested in info on the 1905, especially any info on nickel plating

i came across a nickel plated 1905 and cant find info as to being factory plated or not

my understanding that weapons could be special order

any help would be appreciated

James,

Winchester offered factory nickel plated finish as a special order option for the Model 1905, but it was very rare. If the serial number is < 29079, you can have it lettered by the Cody Firearms Museum records office, and that letter will tell you if it was nickel plated.

the serial number on this rifle is lower (278xxx)

thank you for the information

I've been told that law enforcement  agencies may have made special orders for this

and most were somewhat unused and kept in storage

i can see that possibility but of course i don't know

i have come with nothing on the nickel plating till now

any more you can tell me is also welcome

It was the Model 1907 that was ordered for Police & Prison Guard use (also military use). The Model 1905 might have seen very limited orders and use by Police agencies, but I am unaware of any.

We frown on the use of "xxx" when posting serial numbers.

SORRY ABOUT THE SERIAL NUMBER DEAL,ID ACTUALLY ADDED AN EXTRA X,NUMBER ( 27841 ) IS THE CORRECT ONE

THANKS FOR THE ADDITIONAL INFO AND CORRECTION

I WILL HAVE TO GO THE FACTORY LETTER ROUTE IT LOOKS LIKE TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE NICKEL PLATING

HOPEFULLY ILL SUCCEED iN FINDING THE MOST ACCURATE INFO
