Manufactured in 1907, this is an attractive example of a special order working rifle. The special order part octagon barrel is marked with the standard two-line address/patent dates, two-line nickel steel marking, and the caliber. There are Winchester factory oval proofs on the barrel and receiver at the breech. The three-line model and trademark information is on the upper tang and the serial number is on the bottom of the receiver. It is fitted with a Marble Sheard beaded blade front sight and a D.W. King folding leaf rear sight, as well as sling swivels on the forend nosecap and buttstock. It is mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate. Includes a leather sling.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 75% plus of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina and some scattered light spotting. 40% of the original nitre blue remains on the loading gate. The wood is also very fine with some scattered minor dings. Mechanically excellent.
