Desirable Winchester Model 1866 Lever Action Rifle

This rifle was manufactured in 1883. The top of the barrel 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 behind the lever latch. The left side of the lower tang and the stock under the upper tang are marked with the assembly number "3369". It has a dovetailed German silver blade front sight and an adjustable sporting rear sight. The barrel, magazine tube, and loading gate were finished blue, and the receiver, forend cap and buttplate are brass. It is mounted with a smooth walnut forearm with iron forend cap and straight grip stock with an iron crescent buttplate with compartment (cleaning rod not included).

Class: Antique

Very good. The iron surfaces have a dark gray or brown patina along with patches of mild pitting and oxidation. The brass has an aged patina with some minor marks. The lever is possibly refinished. The wood is fine with moderate handling wear including some overall light scratches and small dings. It is mechanically fine and has crisp markings.
