Manufactured in 1905. The top of the barrel is stamped with the two line address ahead of the rear sight and "33 W.C.F." at the breech. The Winchester oval proof is marked on the top of the barrel and receiver at the breech. The upper tang is marked "MODEL 1886/WINCHESTER/TRADE MARK." The two patent dates and serial number are marked on the lower tang. Ramped Lyman beaded blade front sight and adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight. Blue finish with casehardened hammer and lever, and mounted with a smooth walnut forearm and straight grip stock with a flat checkered hard rubber Winchester buttplate. The accompanying factory letter verifies the rifle configuration, caliber, round barrel, plain trigger, 1/2 magazine, shotgun butt, that it was received in the warehouse on December 28, 1905, and shipped out to order number 50702 on August 1, 1906.
Very fine. The rifle retains 85% plus original blue finish with some minor muzzle wear, edge wear, some minor flaking on the upper tang and some thinning on the underside of the receiver. The sides of the receiver have several minor scratches and dings. Most of the original vivid case colors remain on the hammer and lever with a smooth gray patina on the balance. The wood is also very fine showing some scattered minor dents and scratches. The markings are crisp and clear. Mechanically excellent.
