Lot 1: Exceptionally Scarce Special Order/Deluxe Winchester Model 1886 Takedown Lever Action Rifle with Factory Documentation

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Exceptionally Scarce Special Order/Deluxe Winchester Model 1886 Takedown Lever Action Rifle with Factory DocumentationThis is an excellent example of a rare Deluxe Winchester Model 1886 takedown lever action rifle chambered in the, then, hot new 33 WCF cartridge. This rifle was manufactured in late 1904, received in the Winchester factory warehouse in Feb 1904. It was shipped out under order 219666 on 18, Feb 1904. This cartridge was first produced in late 1902 making this rifle an early chambering for this new high velocity cartridge. As noted this rifle exhibits several deluxe features, such as the pistol grip stock, deluxe/fancy walnut stock and forend, with the highly desirable takedown feature, full magazine, shotgun style butt. The Winchester factory letter validates all these features except that it states it has a rubber buttplate, with this rifle clearly having a standard steel checkered buttplate (a.k.a. M70 style buttplate). The top of the barrel is roll stamped in two lines with "MANUFACTURED BY THE/-WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN. CONN. U.S.A-" ahead of the rear sight, with, "NICKEL STEEL BARREL/ESPECIALLY FOR SMOKELESS POWDER" on the left rear side of the barrel in front of the takedown collar. The caliber designation "33 W.C.F." is stamped on the top of the barrel at the breech. As noted the buttstock and forend are made from a beautiful set of extra fancy burl walnut stock, with matching figure on both sides. The pistol grip has the standard black hard rubber, embossed "WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS" grip cap with both having been factory checkered. It is fitted with a special order Lyman hunting front sight with ivory insert and a low profile, adjustable sporting rear sight. The upper receiver tang is roll stamped "-MODEL 1886-". The lower tang is stamped with the 1884 and 1885 patent dates and the serial number "130031" in script numerals.Manufucture: WinchesterModel: 1886BBL: 24 inch roundStock: walnutGuage: 33 WCFFinish: blueGrips: Serial Number: 130031

The stock and forend have an oil finish and both are in excellent condition with sharp distinct checkering, showing only a couple of minor handling marks. There is a small crack just starting on the left center side of the buttstock. An excellent example of a really nice and very desirable deluxe special order Winchester Model 1886 lever action rifle.

Early Production New Haven Arms Co. Henry Lever Action Rifle

Lot 40: Early Production New Haven Arms Co. Henry Lever Action Rifle

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Early Production New Haven Arms Co. Henry Lever Action RifleHenry lever action rifle manufactured by the New Haven Arms Co., in 1862. The rifle has the distinctive gun metal brass frame and crescent buttplate and blue 24-inch octagon barrel with integral magazine. The hammer, trigger and loading lever are color casehardened. The straight grain, black walnut stock has a low-luster varnish finish. The rifle has the distinctive early features which include: (1) alternate rear sight dovetail on the frame, (2) buttplate with rounded heel, (3) serial numbered buttplate and stock screws, (4) first style, folding leaf rear sight with "100" yard marking on the base and "1000" yard marking on the top of the leaf below the center notch, (5) first style, half-moon nickel silver front sight leaf, (6) small magazine cartridge follower and (6) straight follower cut in the frame for the small cartridge follower. The butt trap contains an original four-piece, jointed hickory cleaning rod. The rifle is not fitted with a sling swivel on the stock or sling hook loop on the left side of the barrel. Sling swivels were extra cost, special order items on early production Henry rifles. The serial number, "638", is visible: (1) on the top of the barrel between the rear sight and the frame, (2) on the lower left side of the tang beneath the stock, (3) on the inside of the upper stock tang inlet, (4) on the inside of the buttplate at the heel. The fitted buttplate screws and upper and lower tang screws all have the rifle serial number stamped on the shank. All of the visible serial numbers match. The top of the barrel is stamped with the first pattern, short legend "HENRY'S PATENT. OCT. 16. 1860/MANUFACTURED BY THE NEWHAVEN ARMS.CO. NEWHAVEN CT." in two lines. The legend uses Gothic (non-serifed) letters for "NEWHAVEN" and Roman (serifed) letters for the remainder of the marking. The New Haven Arms Co., manufactured approximately 1,300 Henry rifles in 1862 as Oliver Winchester struggled to build a market for his advanced 15-shot repeating rifle. In 1863 and 1864 the advantages of the sustained firepower became apparent and large numbers of Henry rifles were purchased by individual Federal soldiers. Experts believe that most Henry rifles manufactured between 1862 and 1865 were purchased by individual soldiers and saw some Civil War service. Henry rifles were especially popular with soldiers in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Michigan regiments in the Western armies.Manufucture: New Haven Arms Co.Model: Henry RifleBBL: 24 inch octagonStock: walnutGuage: 44 Henry RFFinish: blue/casehardenedGrips: Serial Number: 638

Condition Report: Good. The barrel and integral magazine have an attractive dark brown patina. The barrel and rear sight have some very minor, scattered pitting on the edges and contact points. The first style rear sight is complete and original to the rifle. The New Haven Arms legend and serial number are sharp. The brass frame and crescent buttplate have an untouched patina. The frame and side plates have scattered minor dents and scratches, primarily along the upper side plate joints. The case colors on the lever, trigger and hammer have faded to a mottled brown patina. The hammer retains about 30% of the casehardened finish. The stock is in fair-good condition. There are four 1/2-inch diameter wooden plugs below the comb and on the wrist on the right side of the stock. The plugs are professional period repairs and are only visible with close inspection. The toe of the stock has been cracked and professionally repaired. Henry rifles were purchased as combat weapons and typically show the wear associated with military use in the field. This is a, good-looking, above average, example of a first year production Henry rifle and a classic and historic Civil War firearm.

Rare Antique, Deluxe, Gold-Plated, Engraved, Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine with Factory Letter

Lot 48: Rare Antique, Deluxe, Gold-Plated, Engraved, Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine with Factory Letter

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Rare Antique, Deluxe, Gold-Plated, Engraved, Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine with Factory LetterWinchester Model 1892 carbine with Cody Firearms Records Office Letter. The letter states that this carbine was shipped from Winchester on March 4, 1898. The letter describes the carbine features as: "Caliber 44, Fancy Checkered Stock" and "Bright Frame Butt Plates & Bands". This means that the gun was shipped absent of finish for engraving outside of factory. The carbine has a standard block mounted front sight behind the upper barrel band, folding leaf rear sight graduated to 200 yards (20), staple mounted saddle ring on the left side of the frame and a solid carbine style buttplate. The receiver, rear portion of the barrel, both barrel bands and heel of the buttplate are decorated with well executed scroll engraving on a punch-dot background. The barrel bands and receiver are gold washed or gold plated. The stock and forearm are highly figured fancy grain walnut with a piano finish and Winchester "Style H" checkering. The factory notation "Bright Frame Butt Plates & Bands" indicates that the carbine was shipped unfinished for outside engraving and finishing. The engraving is high quality but slightly less delicate than Winchester factory work. The top of the barrel is engraved "SEBASTIAN SALINAS" in block letters above the lower barrel band. An illegible military style cartouche and the rack number "213" are neatly stamped on both sides of the stock just above the buttplate. The top of the barrel is roll-stamped "MANUFACTURED BY THE/- WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CONN. U.S.A.-" between the lower barrel band and the rear sight. The caliber "44 W.C.F." is stamped on the top of the barrel between the rear sight and the receiver in an engraved oval surrounded by scrollwork. The serial number "80444" is stamped across the bottom of the receiver in an engraved oval. "MODEL 1892./-WINCHESTER-/PAT. OCT. 14. 1884." is roll-stamped in three lines on the upper receiver tang. The marking is surrounded by an engraved double line border. The engraving, deluxe stock and forearm and gold finish indicate that this carbine was the property of a wealthy individual or an important military or political figure. The rack numbers and cartouches on the stock indicate that the carbine subsequently saw military service; probably in Mexico during the revolutions and political upheavals during the early 20th Century. Research could reveal the identity of Sebastian Salinas and provide clues to the history of this unique carbine.Manufucture: WinchesterModel: 1892-CarbineBBL: 20 inch roundStock: fancy walnut checkeredGuage: 44-40 WCFFinish: blue/gold platedGrips: Serial Number: 80444

Condition Report: Very good. The carbine shows hard use and retains 30% of the gold washed finish on the receiver and barrel bands. The balance of the metal surfaces have aged to a dark brown patina. The metal surfaces are age textured with scattered light pitting. The engraving remains sharp and all of the markings on the barrel and receiver are legible. The stock and forearm are both in very good overall condition with moderate to heavy handling wear. This is a rare and unique Winchester Model 1892 carbine that probably has a colorful history.
