An Excellent Winchester Model 1886 SRC with Case Colored Frame

.45-70 caliber, 22" barrel, S/N 59173, for 1891. A superb example, possibly un-fired. 22" barrel, standard markings. Carbine butt.  


The condition of this most desirable carbine is exemplary throughout. Barrel and magazine tube retain nearly 100% of their original factory bluing. Barrel bands, rear sight and front sight retain most of their original bright blue finish. Frame retains nearly all of its original bright case hardening with rainbow colors. Only the most minor blemishes on left and right side to be expected in a nearly 150 year old Winchester. The slightest mark from the saddle ring. The lever retains nearly all all of its original bright case colors as does hammer. Buttplate retains much original case hardening. Figured walnut forend with a few minor marks from handling. Butt with nearly all of its original varnish and only the most minor marks. Bolt retains nearly all of its original bright blue. Bore is brilliant as new. A superb specimen in on of the most desirable calibers and would be difficult to upgrade. 

Estimate: $12,000 - $15,000
