Hi Everyone,
This is another from my collection I’m offering to this boards members 1st!
This is a very early Model 1886….serial number 129. Overall, it’s a standard 1886 Full octagon Full magazine Rifle w/ a Cresent Butt Stock – but it has a Special Ordered 28” Bbl. Caliber is 40-82 which is one of three calibers initially offered in the 1886.
The rifle is in very nice condition – IMO NRA Fine. As most early 86’s, the receiver was Color Case Hardened, some of which is still visible in the low wear areas. The metal is smooth with no pitting or corrosion. All markings are in Very Fine condition and completely legible. Browning’s patent dates are located on the lower tang underneath the lever. Screws are VG. The wood is in great shape too, just a few normal dings, NO cracks, chips or missing pieces. The front sight is a Winchester Rocky Mountain Front with steel blade and Platinum insert. The ladder rear sight is marked "1886" which is correct on these early 86’s.
Action is tight, no slop and cycles smoothly. The bore is in very nice condition with well defined rifling, no rings, bulges or pitting.
If you’ve always wanted a Winchester with a low serial number this is a great opportunity to pick one up! Contact me w/ any questions.

Hi Jarod,

I sent you a PM. There’s only one s/n and the BBHC records confirm the configuration of this rifle.

Best regards,
Marty
