W42 WINCHESTER MODEL 1885 DELUXE SCHUETZEN RIFLE

Item # W42

Caliber .22 Short. Original 28 inch #3 full octagon barrel with an excellent bore. Sights include a vernier folding tang sight and a wind gauge front sight with spirit level. Original 3X grade pistol grip checkered Schuetzen style stock is in excellent condition with most orig lacquer intact, helm buttplate and Dutch pattern cheekpiece. Overall gun is exc with 98% orig bbl blue, 75-80% bright vivid case colors. The Schuetzen rifles with a case colored frame are really quite unusual, they're generally later guns than that. Complete with Factory Letter of Authenticity which states, 'no rear sight seat' but this has got a sight dovetail for a rear sight-probably an oversight or somebody put it in at a later time. If that's the case, they did a perfect job. Formerly in the Eldon Owens collection.

Antique   $ 12,500 .
