Description:

Manufactured in 1892.

Winchester oval proof on the barrel and receiver at the breech. The lower tang has the patent date and the serial number.

Rating Definition:

Good with factory replacement barrel. The barrel retains 70% faded original blue finish showing some thinning to a gray. The remaining metal surfaces have a mottled gray patina with traces of original case colors on the breech block. There is some very scattered light pitting. The reoiled wood is very good with a few minor handling marks. Mechanically fine.
