Description:

Manufactured in 1896 as part of the first contract run for the United States Navy, the Winchester-Lee was a very advanced weapon for the era, with a rapidly manipulatable cam-driven bolt and a high velocity small bore cartridge with a very flat trajectory. Blade front and ladder rear sights, with "-U.S.N.-/[anchor]/No 4382/-N.C.T.-" on the receiver ring and the two-line New Haven address/patent marks on the left side of the receiver. Smooth pistol grip stock with sling swivels and a smooth buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, with 70% plus of the original blue finish, showing areas of gray and brown patina and mild handling marks. A small amount of dings and tiny pits are present on the left side of the receiver. The reoiled wood is fine, with scattered dings and scuffs. Mechanically excellent.
