I agree – quite interesting – the configuration is very (VERY) appealing to me.

Sold for $10,025.  A neat Winchester 1886 but significantly more than I would shell out for it.

Probably about the same. I was sad I didn’t get it. this is one configuration I really like and has been my nemesis. RIA sold one recently only it was a plain jane hammered at 9K.

Special Order Winchester Model 1886 Lightweight Takedown Rifle | Rock Island Auction

The price of this gun surprised Me because of the condition. A nice rifle, but alot of carry wear.  45-90 lightweights are certainly hard to find in any configuration.

I was surprised also. But  the letter helped it along I think. Another 45-90 elw that alluded me. Scarce one to find.

It is a lightweight rifle, takedown, and with pistol grip and checkering, and in .45-90.  With the wear, however, I thought this to be more of a $7500 or $8000 rifle, not 10K +.  Maybe not even that, as the stocks are refinished and that makes me lose interest really quickly.  Plus the added sling swivels.

Did those screw eyes look factory? One on the but looks like it is in the wrong place.

I agree exactly.  The condition just wasn’t there for me at that price.  I admit to living in the past.  For me, it is a wonderful configuration/chambering.  I knew Tom would be drooling.  Years ago, a .50-110 Lightweight came up for sale – that would have been very sweet.

I don’t know, that’s serious money for a rifle with considerable wear and refinished wood.

I agree about the letter part.  I prefer lettered Winchesters.  Sometimes you decide to buy one with several features because it has rarity and condition, even if it is outside of the letterable range, because it’s compelling.  This one would be compelling if the cost reflected the condition relative to what it is.  Typical of Gunbroker, the final price exceeded considerably true value once one accounts for wear and refinished wood.

Hi Guys,

So considering the model and condition how much does it being in 45-90 figure into the equation of value? I have always considered Model 1886 in 45-70 or 45-90 factor into value positively but I wonder by how much.

Thanks,

Rob

I think a fair bit.  You see darn fewer .45-90’s in this configuration than you see .45-70’s.

My thought is that the 45-70 is desirable as it is easy to get ammo for it and shoot. The 45-90 is because of the rarity. Then throw in the fact it was an ELW with deluxe wood. It was a really nice set up. As Dana said earlier, great moose gun.

 I think the 45-90 caliber in that configuration is worth a fair bit more than a 45-70 with the same features. T/R
