Thank you, Dan.  Sounds like a nice rifle.

Somewhere along the line I have run into that one before as it is already quantified in the survey. 

Maybe you included it previously? 

Best,

Too bad you had it already. Glad to have it brings me up to 4 different 1886 calibers on original Winchester 1886 rifles. I guess they will be tougher and more expensive now that 33WCF, .40-65, .40-82. and .45-70 are safely secured in my collection.  to find I would love to see your survey data sometime.

Dan,

As soon as a reasonably statistically viable sample of the missing serial number rifles is reached, the data will be presented in the Winchester Collector magazine for all.   

Thank you for your input.
