The powerful Winchester Model 1886 remains one of the most iconic lever action rifles. It was the first lever action rifle designed by John Moses Browning. Special order '86s remain especially popular, and examples in high condition like this one are highly sought after. This stunning takedown rifle was manufactured in 1894 and features a combination bead and globe front sight, rear sight dovetail filler block, a Lyman peep sight, full-length magazine tube, the two-line address and patent marking on top of the barrel, "40-65 W.C.F." on top at the breech, the patent marking and serial number on the lower tang, a checkered forearm and beautifully figured pistol grip stock with horn grip inlay and casehardened rifle buttplate.
Excellent with 90% plus original blue finish, minor loss at the edges, 95% plus original vibrant case colors, light marks and scratches, and generally only minor age and handling related wear. The wood is also excellent and has beautiful figure, crisp checkering, minor dings and scratches, and nearly all of the glossy original finish. Mechanically excellent. This is a very attractive and rare Winchester Model 1886 Deluxe Takedown rifle. You don't see them like this often!
