Description:

Manufactured 1895 the first year of production. The included Cody Firearms Museum research request confirms the caliber and rifle configuration and that it was shipped on April 24, 1896. This is 1 of the only 5,000 manufactured with the flat sided receiver. This solid frame rifle is equipped with a blade front sight and adjustable buckhorn rear sight. The top of the barrel is marked "MANUFACTURED BY THE/WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CONN. U.S.A." ahead of the rear sight and "30 U.S." at the breech. The upper tang is marked "WINCHESTER/MODEL 1895" and the serial number is marked on the lower tang. Directly behind the trigger is marked "PAT NOV. 5, 1895/-- NOV. 12, 1895 --". It is fitted with a smooth tapered forearm with an ebony forend insert and straight grip stock with a steel crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Fine. The rifle retains 60% of the original blue finish with a smooth gray patina on the balance. Traces of original case colors remain on the hammer. The wood is very good with a number of minor pressure dents and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
