All though upon looking I found a Leroy Merz add for a 45-70 at 13,500. Just increased what mine is worth!!!!

The .40-70 is just an extra barrel – not shipped that way from the factory.  Huge difference in the value.

I would agree as there is no magazine with the second barrel set. BUT the wood on the fore stock is not a bad match for the main rifle. To me it falls into the really neat category, but no proof. So basically an 86 that letters as a 45-70 with couple special ordered features with a price tag comparable to what the liernet has told them. Wouldn’t give more than half what they are asking. P.S. Nice wax job on the wood.

Great stuff I might add.  My friend Larry Shennum and I used to keep a case of it on the table at the Big Reno show.  I still use it today when I get the guns out of the safe for an inspection.  Works well on the wood and steel.

Agree – that Old West Snake Oil was recommended to me over 40 years ago and it has served me well – keeps this old guy’s old Winchesters looking good without any damage.

The sight was designed by Daniel Barringer and is referred to in the museum records as a Barringer sight. The sight was marketed by W.F. Sheard (the sight is marked with his name and the patent date) who was from Tacoma, Washington – he provided a lot of sights for Winchester rifles during the period this Model 86 was made. The sight has previously been discussed here on the Forum.
