Yes, but only for the late production specimens (serial numbers 146000 – 160000).  The factory ledger records are missing for serial numbers 146000 – 150799 and 156600 – 160000.  Mark Yecha and I are tracking down as many of them as possible to document what was manufactured in that serial range.  John Madl has the statistical details for all of the Model 1886 serial numbers that can be lettered.

I have an 86 manufactured in 03 that is a rifle but has a 20″ barrel in .33 caliber. My book does not show a 20″ in the rifle configuration. The front sight is integral to the barrel so has not been cut. I have another .33 that is a takedown, and an extremely nice Deluxe Extra Light Weight Rifle in .45-70.

Please send me the serial numbers for each of your Model 1886s

Almost forgot. I have an octagon .45-70 that was used to hunt beluga whales in Alaska. I have a letter from the previous owner stating when and where. It’s in nice condition. I’ll send you some info on that one too. Hope to hear back from you, especially about my Deluxe.

Bert,

just acquired a Model 86 in 33WCF 24″ round barrel, hard rubber shotgun butt,  half magazine, takedown.  157879 is the serial number. 

I hope this is a new one for the survey.  If you want any additional information, please advise.

The ’86 survey is only for examples outside the letterable range.

Actually, it is for all serial numbers > 145999.  Even though serial numbers 150800 – 156599 can be lettered, we are including them in the survey.  The survey is looking at the last 14,000 Model 1886s manufactured.

Yes, I own it. Removed receiver sight and it has proper NI code and #4 front,  which is common on these.78A9A0F7-9668-41A1-9510-49FB9132EC47.jpegImage Enlarger5581639A-DD87-47F2-8AE1-8362CA76C66A.jpegImage EnlargerE49B9DA3-5F42-47BD-9F32-24D0B64AADE1.jpegImage Enlarger

Very nice… and a relatively rare Model 1886!  Special order barrel lengths for the 33 WCF rifles was very uncommon.

Thanks for posting the pictures Cool
