We have just obtained an 1886 Winchester customized by Henry Slotterbek (Slotterbeck). It is in near mint condition, cal. .45 Gov. The bbl is half round/half octagon. It is Slotterbek style. It is 30.5″ long. It has been professionally lined, it has not been refinished. Markings are shown in the photos, that is if I can attach them (I don’t find any way to add photos from my computer, Please tell me how to do it) Slotter Los Angeles in the arched style which they used on all firearms. We would appreciate any information any of you guys could supply. This is most likely the last rifle Henry built. He was killed in an accident at the firing range, very possibly by this very rifle. There is no serial number but he died June 25, 1888 so this one is an antique. According to information we have been able to find he was testing two rifles belonging to a Judge Anson Brunson who was well known in L.A. and built a mansion there. This rifle is of great historical importance and that is why we are undertaking the searching of it’s history.

Thank you all for your help.
