Description:

Manufactured in 1899. This is a beautiful example of a restored Model 1886 Saddle Ring Carbine. The included factory letter confirms the carbine configuration, caliber and that it was received in the warehouse on May 25, 1900, shipped on September 20, 1900 and returned to the factory for repair on September 10, 1907. The top of the barrel ahead of the rear sight is marked with the two-line address, and "45-70" is at the breech. The upper tang is marked "-MODEL 1886-", and the serial number is on the lower tang. Pinned blade front sight and folding ladder rear sight graduated to "20" (200 yards). Blue barrel, barrel bands, saddle ring, stud and magazine tube; casehardened remaining parts, and mounted with a smooth walnut forearm and straight grip stock with a carbine buttplate. Consignor notes state this was refinished by Turnbull Restoration.

Rating Definition:

Very fine as restored to near mint with only a few light handling/storage marks. An exceptionally nice, totally restored Winchester Model 1886 Saddle Ring Carbine that would compliment a Winchester collection.
