This is an example of a late production Winchester Model 90 with scarce round barrel in rare .22 long rifle caliber. Correct twelfth style barrel inscription, Winchester "WP" proofs on the barrel and receiver at the breech, matching serial numbers on the receiver and lower tang, third model receiver with exposed locking lugs, three-line trademark on the upper tang, and checkered hammer spur. The replacement front sight has three rotating beaded blades and the rear sight is the standard Winchester elevation adjustable sporting notch. Short twelve groove slide handle and plain straight grip stock with blue steel crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel has 95% original blue with small patches of surface pitting, well defined markings, and some light slide retraction marks. The receiver has 90% original blue finish with areas of flaking, mild toned patina. The wood is also very fine with scattered dings and scratches throughout, and a mixed blue patina on the buttplate with some oxidation. Mechanically excellent.
