Love the rifle, shame about the butt stock. It looks to be well used and cared for except for the stock.

Hello pistol1911, the rifle is actually pitted all over and yes, it's a shame.

It needs a complete restoration and I'm looking for some replacement parts. (dust-cover and full-length mag.)

It has a real potential and I should keep it until I can afford the special cares of a specialist.

Being a machinist myself, I have to investigate what I may do myself or leave to a professional restorer.

It's been in my safe for 6 months now...

Frichtie,

You may want to try Homestead Parts (www.homesteadparts.com).  They have original, as well as manufacture new, parts for original Winchester and other firearms.  They do have dust covers in stock, as I just checked their web page.

Good luck with the restoration, and keep us posted.

Thank you for the infos. I think the right to do first, is to get the parts I need. Then I can begin disassemble the rifle and take each metal part to the right guy for treatment. (Color-case hardening etc...)
I'm in no hurry.

18 monts ago, this very rifle, along with a model 1886, was put on the desk of a police officer by a previous owner who simply wanted to get rid of it. The officer sent him back home, with his rifles, after telling him that he should try to sell them otherwise they will be sent to a foundry for total destruction! HE GAVE THEM TO MY UNCLE. Who ultimately sold them to me!  Thank you officer.

Dusty,

You are a luck man.  But I am certain you earned it.  I know many of those have had your talented hands put them back into working order.  Enjoy them.

Dusty,

If you run out of room in your safe for the "Queens", I just purchased another one and have plenty of spare room.  I'll be happy to provide a nice, safe environment for any of them you don't have room for! I know you keep acquiring more of those lovelies, and you'll likely need more storage room at some time............... Roll Eyes
