Manufactured in 1910, this is a rare Trapper's Carbine with a highly desirable 16 inch barrel (no ATF exemption required). The upper left of the barrel is marked with the standard two-line address/patent dates, as well as the caliber marking at the breech. There are Winchester factory oval proofs on the barrel and receiver at the breech. The upper tang has the standard thee-line model and trademark information, while the serial number is on the lower tang. It is fitted with a pinned German silver blade front sight, folding ladder rear sight, and a saddle ring on the left of the receiver. It is mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a carbine buttplate.
Fine, retains 60% plus of the original blue finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth brown-grey patina and numerous scattered patches of light pitting. The wood is also fine with some areas of dark staining, a repaired chip on the comb, and generally minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
