Manufactured in 1902 and featuring a Lyman beaded blade front sight (bead absent), adjustable sporting rear sight, the two-line address, and "44 W.C.F." on top at the breech. The rifle correctly does not have the oval "WP" proofs. The frame has the three-line model designation and patent marking on the upper tang and the serial number on the bottom. The rifle is mounted with a smooth forearm and straight wrist stock with a crescent buttplate.
Very good plus with 30% of the original blue finish remaining, most of the blue finish on the replacement magazine tube, attractive gray and brown patina on the balance, some patches of minor oxidation, and mild overall wear. The wood is also very good and has numerous light dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent. This is an solid representative example of one of the classic Winchesters of the iconic Westerns of the 20th century. Many of these rifles saw use in the West in the early 20th century.
