Manufactured in 1919 in the very desirable 44 WCF caliber. The carbine features a pinned blade front sight, folding ladder rear sight, full magazine and two barrel bands. The left side of the barrel has the two line address/patent dates marking stamped ahead of the rear sight and "44 W.C.F." stamped at the breech. The Winchester factory oval proof is stamped on top of the barrel and receiver at the breech. The serial number is stamped on the underside of the frame and the upper tang is stamped with the three line model/trademark information. The left side of the receiver has the saddle ring. Smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a carbine buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel and magazine retain 97% original blue finish and the receiver retains 30% original blue finish with almost all of the loss due to flaking. There is a smooth brown patina on the balance of the receiver. The wood is excellent with some minor finish loss at the butt, and overall some minor dents and handling marks. The markings are clear. Mechanically excellent.
