Yes, that appears to be a 1st variation (early) Winchester Model 1900, the first variation was not marked with a model number for some reason, the second variations (2a and 2b) were marked “MODEL 1900 / 22 SHORT & LONG” after the address and patent roll marking.

Looks like a 1900, no marking on barrel?

Exceptional condition for an early 1900.

Breech end of brl pretty worn, so no re-blue, but stock appears to have had a gloss finish applied.

No re blue here. Just typical condition they are usually found in. Same with most M58’s. Most of these old single shots have taken a lickin and are still tickin, despite the terrible bores. The M1900 is one of the hardest boys rifles to find. The M02 in 22 LR is another.  Big Larry
