Winchester 1886 50-100-450
« on: May 17, 2023, 09:09:47 AM »
I just picked up a beautiful rifle with a whole bunch of special order features…

Rifle1/2 octagon barrel

matted

1 pound extra heavy.

Set trigger

1/2 magazine 5 cartridges

checked stock pistol grip

shotgun butt

oil finish.

Sling and swivel

oval silver name plate in fore-arm 1″ long

Length of stock 14″,

Lyman wind gauge, set screw in front sight

no rear sight seat.

It is in excellent original condition with a bright bore. I got a box of ammunition with it, loaded with jacketed bullets, from Buffalo Arms. I think I will pull the bullets and reload them with cast bullets…






I never considered myself a failure...I started out at the bottom and happen to like it here!

[what a great rifle and with all those special features I’m envious, we don’t see the likes of those here in the U K these days. Hope it gives you as much pleasure on the range where they need to be to fully enjoy them!

That is an exquisite example of an '86!  The matted checkering on the top of the barrel is another rare, special-order feature.  Is it the whole length of the barrel?
