Selling factory original Winchester ebony-tipped forearm wood for Winchester 1885 single shot octagon barreled rifle.  Forearm is in very nice original condition.  Appears to be factory original finish and see no evidence of sanding/refinishing.  I measured the width of the barrel channel with calipers on both ends, as well as the width at the retaining screw location.  The ebony-tipped end barrel channel measures approx. 0.832 inches wide, 0.865 inches at forearm retaining screw location, and 0.997 inches wide at the receiver end.  Asking $75 plus $10 shipping to lower 48 only.  Will consider shipping elsewhere for added shipping fee.  Please send me a PM if interested.

Thanks,

Don

Don,

The “2” stamped into the stock channel right above the tenon cut out tells me it was made for a low-wall with a No. 2 octagon barrel.  A No. 2 barrel was special order for a low-wall rifle.

That’s interesting Bert and a great piece of info for a potential buyer..  I was wondering about that “2” stamp and figured it was just an assembly number.

Thanks again,

Don

Is there any chance -with minimum mods-that this forend would fit an 1887 HWall full octagon

No, no chance at all.  The high-wall frame is much wider than the low-wall. Further compounding the issue is the fact that most high-wall rifles were made with a No. 3 barrel.
