Item ID #1966

This is a rare 1876. Not many of these came from the factory with case color hardening. It is guaranteed to be factory original. Most of the color has silvered, but you can still see a fair amount of the original case color. Original blue remains on the barrel and magazine tube. Year of manufacture is 1884. Caliber is 40/60. Bore in the 28" octagon barrel has good lands and grooves, along with some pitting. It will rate a good strong six on a one to ten scale. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. The dust cover is tight and smooth on the rail. It also works perfectly. Wood to metal fit is excellent. Condition of the wood is very good. All markings are original, correct, and complete. This 1876 Octagon barrel Winchester will make a great addition to your collection. I added more pictures of the frame on the right side. I don't want anyone to miss the inscription. J S Norris
