Attractive Winchester Third Model 1866 Lever Action Rifle

This is an attractive example of a Winchester Model 1866 Rifle that was manufactured in 1871. The rifle has a full octagon barrel, special order factory sling swivels on the forearm cap and stock. The top barrel flat is marked "WINCHESTER'S-REPEATING ARMS.NEW HAVEN. CT./KING'S-IMPROVEMENT-PATENTED-MARCH 29.1866. OCTOBER 16.1860.". The serial number is marked on the lower tang followed by "HS". Dovetailed blade front sight and a Henry style folding ladder rear sight graduated to 900 yards. The barrel, magazine tube and loading gate were finished blue, and the receiver, forend cap and buttplate are brass. Mounted with a smooth walnut forearm and straight grip stock with a crescent buttplate with compartment (cleaning rod not included).

Class: Antique

Very good. The barrel and magazine tube retain 20% original blue finish, (mainly on the lower barrel flats), with the balance having a very attractive crisp smooth brown patina. The brass has an attractive aged patina. The receiver side plate joints remain tight. The loading gate has a dark gray patina with traces of the original niter blue finish. The loading lever and trigger have a smooth mottled gray/brown patina. The hammer retains much of the original case colors. There are number of shallow gouges on the buttplate. The forearm is fine condition with scattered minor dents and dings. The stock is cracked through the wrist and has been professionally repaired and partially refinished. The stock is otherwise very good with a few deep scratches, and scattered minor dents, dings and scratches. A nice example of a Model 1866 Rifle.
