Description:

Manufactured in 1921 and chambered for the highly desirable .405 WCF cartridge, the most powerful cartridge ever offered in a Winchester lever action rifle and suitable for hunting dangerous game in North America, Africa or Asia. President Teddy Roosevelt used a Winchester Model 1895 rifle chambered for the .405 W.C.F. cartridge extensively during his famous African safari. The rifle is fitted with non-factory Redfield blade front and elevation adjustable rear sights. The receiver is fitted with a Lyman sight. A Winchester factory oval proof is stamped on top of the barrel and receiver at the breech. The left side of the barrel has the two-line nickel steel marking and "405 WCF." The left side of the receiver has the two-line Winchester legend. The buttstock is fitted with a crescent buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Fine. The barrel retains 75% original blue finish with a refinished spot visible on the bottom ahead of the forend. The action retains 30% original blue finish with a smooth brown patina on the balance. The wood is also fine with some minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent.
