Hello Bert, I was in a local gun shop today and spied this 1886 in his gun rack.  It was in nice shape except for some surface rust where the receiver was worn.

#157132

Caliber, 33 Winchester

26″ bbl

Take down rifle.

But plate looked to be plastic with the Winchester logo?

Rear bbl sight was a flat top.  Front sight looked like a standard sight on a small ramp.

I highly suspect that the barrel is the standard 24″ length.

You are probably right, I didn’t measure it, just eyeballed it.

I don’t get out that way to often, it might be gone before I do.
