Does anyone know where I can get a copy of a schematic/exploded view of a Winchester 1885?

Thanks

Hi Ed,

Just Google “Winchester 1885 exploded diagram” and you will see a plethora of images and pdf’s you can download, some of them are even available for purchase in printed form.  There are diagrams for both the original 1885 and the 1885 produced under license, make sure you download the correct version you need.

Best Regards,

If you’re interested in understanding how the parts interact, a schematic is going to require a lot of imagination. If you can possibly beg, borrow, or purloin Single Shot Rifles by Frank de Hass, every detail of mechanical operation will be made crystal clear.  Also disassembly instructions, though as I said, that’s not a road it’s wise to travel without a very good reason.

I found a couple on line, MVA has a nice one associated with the 1885 parts they sell.

Make sure to get the correct one for your gun.  Earlier guns have a flat main spring and the later ones have a coil spring.  Hopefully Bert will chime in and give you an approximate serial number when the change was made.

All he need do is take off the forearm–either you see a long flat spring or you don’t.
