I just got an antique Winchester Model 1885 Low Wall rifle.

It’s a .32 Short caliber one.

It’s got a 26″ Round No. 1 Barrel.

It’s DOM is 1892. S/N 58104.

It has a nice tall peep sight.

It has a sling loop in the front, but none on the butt stock.

It’s in fairly good original condition.

Surprising on any .32 RF, as is the single swivel.  Flicker link doesn’t work.

I’m trying to insert a picture of this rifle, but like you said, the Flicker link didn’t work. It said “could not find image”.

I tried another online photo site called ibb.co also, but I got the same error.

I was going to try a Google Pictures link, but now it won’t let me edit my post for some reason.

Fact is, this site makes image posting by non-members close to impossible, as your experience, & that of many others, has repeatedly proven.  Maybe a programmer can figure out how to do it, but most cannot.

There is an easy solution to this… sign-up for a full WACA membership.  The Magazines and Calendar are easily worth the cost of the membership.

That, Bert, is at last the truth about this recurrent issue…as opposed to pretending that if the poor sap trying to post can do so if only he “keeps trying.”

The photo posting is interesting.  I started out here as a guest member and used an outside photo hosting site (initially photobucket and later Imgur).  Then I became a member … but still kept using Imgur.  I did so because it was easy and didn’t want to mess with learning the other way to do it through this site.  I suppose this speaks to my ancient artifact status – stick with what I know rather than try something new.  By the way, for me, trying something new – especially when it comes to this computer stuff – usually results in plenty of frustration.  I get enough of that at my job.

Steve,

Even “old dogs” can learn new tricks (contrary to the popular old idiom).  If you need help learning the process, let me know.  I can have you posting pictures like an “Old Pro” in a manner of minutes.

There is not a single “Carbine” in that fine batch of 33 WCF Model 1886s !

You are correct Burt, But I was referencing the first picture Steve posted. Believe they are all 1894’s and I’m guessing in 32 special?  BTW steve I didn’t know you where a 86 aficionado.

I think O’Cranky was referring to the first batch of photos I posted – which were carbines.  But as far as the group of .33 WCF’s, I sure wish they were all M1886 SRC’s (in .33).  Cool
