Manufactured in 1901. Lyman hunting front sight with sporting folding ladder rear sight. The top of the barrel is marked "MANUFACTURED BY THE WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO./NEW HAVEN. CONN. U.S.A. PAT. OCT. 14. 1884. JAN. 20. 1885", caliber marking at the breech. The lower tang is marked "PAT. OCT. 14, 1884/JAN. 20, 1885". The top of the tang is fixed with a Lyman adjustable rear sight. 3/4 length tubular magazine, casehardened lever and hammer, smooth forearm with iron forend tip, and straight grip stock with a checkered hard rubber shotgun style buttplate marked " WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO" in a circle.
Very good with 40% plus of the thinning original blue finish remains on the barrel with minor spotting and a few handling marks. The receiver retains traces of original blue finish mostly in sheltered areas the balance is now a mottled dark gray patina exhibiting only minor surface scratches. The hammer and lever show faint but distinct traces of original case colors. The wood is good as revarnished with scattered pressure marks and scratches. The left forearm has the name "SAM" hand etched on the side. Mechanically excellent.
