Manufactured in 1910 with standard Winchester factory oval proofs on the barrel and receiver at the breech. The barrel proof is offset on the right to accommodate the factory tapped holes for scope blocks, of which there are two in front and two behind the rear sight, all with filler screws in place. The barrel also has the standard "proof steel", model, trademark, and caliber marking offset on the left. The left side of the lower tang is marked "628" with no number on the buttstock. It is fitted with Marble beaded blade front and elevation adjustable buckhorn rear sights, as well as a tang mounted peep sight and special order half magazine. It is mounted with a nicely figured replacement forearm and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 95% plus of the original blue finish on the barrel, 85% of the original blue on most of the remainder, with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth brown patina. The forearm cap and takedown collar show mostly a smooth brown patina. The wood is very fine with some minor dings and scratches scattered throughout. Mechanically excellent.
