Manufactured in 1903 with standard Winchester markings including the "nickel steel" barrel marking and the matted section on top of the receiver. It is fitted with Lyman blade front (top of the blade broken off), elevation adjustable notch rear, and receiver mounted Lyman peep sights. Mounted with a finely figured schnabel tip forearm with ebony insert and factory style "H" pattern checkering, and a highly figured walnut straight grip oil finished stock with a hard rubber Winchester shotgun buttplate. The stock is marked "95" in the inlet. No factory letter is available to confirm the configuration.
Very fine, retains 85% plus of the original high polish blue finish with the balance a smooth grey patina, primarily in the form of some flaking patches of very light surface pitting on the right of the receiver. The wood is also very fine with a few hairline cracks in the forearm, otherwise minimal handling marks, and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
