Nice choices.

I would take #1.

Enjoy whatever your choice is!

The Model 1886.  The others don't come close.

Tough call between #1 and #2. The '86 is a beautiful rifle, but I've not seen photos of the '95 with its fancy wood.

If he had a special attachment to one it may be the tie breaker.  I have some of my Dads guns and it means a lot to know he liked them and or shot them.

Well, after long deliberation, I chose the 1886 takedown.  It was a tough decision between the 1886 takedown and the deluxe 1895.  The deluxe 1895 is a beautiful gun to look at, but I've always preferred the tube magazine models 1886, 1892, and (mostly) the 1894 any day over the 1895.  I was considering this 1895 simply because it was a deluxe model in a good caliber and in such high condition.  The deciding factor was the 1886 has always been dad's favorite and his name is also on the Cody letter.  I will cherish this gun forever and never let it go.  Upon my death it will be passed on to my son.  Thanks again Dad!

No bad choices, I hope the 1886 will bring you memories of your dad for many years to come.
