Manufactured in 1888. The rifle is fitted with a beaded blade Lyman front sight, an elevation adjustable rear sight, and folding tang peep sight. The top barrel flat is stamped with the two-line Winchester address ahead of the rear sight and "45-90 WCF" at the breech. The lower tang has the patent dates marking and the serial number. The forearm and pistol grip stock are nicely figured "XX" select walnut and feature "H" style checkering. The stock features an ebony grip insert and a crescent buttplate. The left side of the lower tang is marked "4 XX." The assembly number "4" is repeated in the stock inlet and buttplate.
Very good. The barrel and magazine retain 30% plus original blue finish with a smooth brown patina on the balance. The bolt retains 60% original blue finish with a patch of pitting. The remaining surfaces retain traces of original case colors in the protected areas. The refurbished wood is fine with minor handling marks and crisp recut checkering. Mechanically excellent.
