Description:

Manufactured in 1891 as an early First Model. The barrel has the early "broken D" variation of the two-line Winchester address seen on serial numbers from 1 to approximately 11,000-14,000 and the "22 SHORT" caliber marking on the top flat. The upper tang is marked with the standard First Model three-line trademark/model designation/patent date marking and the lower tang has the early slanted serial number. The early 24 3/8 inch octagon barrel is fitted with a beaded blade front sight and notch rear sight. The casehardened receiver correctly lacks the takedown screw, hammer has the early fine bordered checkering with arched bottom, and the trigger is correctly smooth. It is mounted with a 12-groove slide handle and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate. Provenance: The Dr. Robert Azar Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 99% of the professionally restored blue finish and 95% plus of the case colors with the balance a smooth grey patina and a few scattered light handling marks. The crisp barrel markings are remarked. The refinished wood is also very fine with a few scattered minor dings. Mechanically excellent.
