This specific rifle is actually a very early rifle and unbelievably remains in exceptional condition. This is a Third Model with the dust cover that operates on the central guide rail which was machined as part of the receiver.

Deluxe Factory Engraved, New Haven Arms Henry Lever Action Rifle

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Magnificent Deluxe Factory Engraved, New Haven Arms Henry Lever Action Rifle with Silver Plated Frame This is an important example of an exhibition quality, factory engraved silver finished Henry rifle that was manufactured by the New Haven Arms Company in the early months of 1865 and is attributed to factory engraver Samuel Hoggson. The rifle has the later style receiver with no sight dovetail and later style buttplate with a more pointed heel. The barrel is the proper later variation fitted with the sight dovetail just behind the address, folding leaf rear sight graduated to 900 yards and a German silver front sight with squared back. The rifle has a blued barrel, casehardened hammer and lever, and a silver plated frame and buttplate. The stock is a special select grade deluxe walnut with a high gloss finish. The left side of the stock has a sling swivel, and the left side of the barrel has a loop for a sling hook. The rifle was engraved by Samuel J. Hoggson who was responsible for the majority of the factory engraved Henry Rifles. The engraving is a classic Hoggson pattern of an elaborate scrollwork on a punch dot background. The scrollwork is present on the top of the receiver, the tang, both side plates and extends to the buttplate. The right side of the frame features extensive scroll and punch dot patterns in a scalloped border. The left side of the frame exhibits a running deer and dog motif flanked by a scroll and punch dot background and framed with a scalloped border. See "Winchester Engraving" pg. 27 by R.L. Wilson for another similar example. The top barrel flat is roll stamped "HENRY'S PATENT. OCT. 16. 1860/MANUFACT'D BY THE NEWHAVEN ARMS. CO. NEWHAVEN. CT." Complete with four piece steel cleaning rod. Most of the approximately 9,000 Henry rifles manufactured by the New Haven Arms Company between April 1862 and May 1865 were standard rifles intended for sale to individual soldiers or purchased by the Ordnance Department. Relatively few factory engraved Henry rifles were manufactured during the Civil War, and surviving examples are rare. Manufacturer: New Haven Arms Co. Model: Henry Rifle BBL: 24 inch octagon Stock: select deluxe walnut Gauge: 44 Henry RF Finish: blue/silver/casehardened Grips: Serial Number: 11748 Class: Antique Condition: Very fine over 60% plus original bright blue finish remains on the barrel. The balance is an even age-darkened plum patina with isolated patches of mild surface pitting reserved to the high edge on the right side of the barrel. The barrel address and serial number are crisp and clear. The loading lever and hammer have a gray/brown patina but still display original muted case colors. A strong 90% plus original silver plated finish remains on the receiver and buttplate. The finish wear is limited to high points and the upper tang. The select deluxe walnut stock is excellent and retains nearly all of its original high gloss finish and exhibits beautiful feathering down the length. This is a fantastic example of an exhibition quality factory engraved Henry rifle. This is one of a select few pieces that can boast both rarity and nearly un-improvable original condition and is worthy to be included in the highest grade of collection.

Description: Winchester First Model 1866 Lever Action Rifle Documented in Madis Book with Letter Manufactured in 1867 and subsequently restored bock to the first configuration. This rifle is illustrated and described on page 58 of "The Winchester Book" by George Madis. The rifle is accompanied by a detailed, five-page, evaluation by Madis that concludes the rifle is all original, is one an estimated 50 surviving First Model 1866 Rifles and remains in "truly outstanding" condition. (We do not agree with his assessment!) The rifle has the distinctive brass receiver and crescent buttplate with blued octagon barrel and full-length magazine, casehardened hammer, lever and trigger; and burl grain walnut stock and forearm. The left side of the receiver has a factory staple-mounted saddle ring. The hammer has coarse, borderless knurling and does not have a half-cock feature. The buttplate has a hinged trapdoor, and the butt-trap contains a four-piece, steel cleaning rod with brass tip. The rifle has the distinctive First Model features which include: receiver with "Henry Drop" and no flare at the junction with the forearm, two tang screws, screw-fastened magazine retaining band, un-capped forearm with chamfered tip and single brass retaining screw and Henry's patent/King's patent barrel legend. The barrel has the first pattern sporting style front sight with nickel silver blade and a folding leaf rear sight with 1000 yard center notch and no elevation bar stop. The top barrel flat is roll-stamped: "HENRY'S PATENT. OCT. 16. 1860./KING'S-PATENT. MARCH 29. 1866" in two lines ahead of the rear sight. The Madis letter states that the underside of the barrel is stamped with two crosses indicating it was fired and proofed and a "W" factory inspection mark. The letter further states that the serial number "15052" is stamped on the underside of the barrel, left side of the lower tang, in the upper stock inlet and on the inside of the buttplate. The letter also indicates that the assembly number "1676" is stamped on the inside of both side plates. Manufacturer: Winchester Model: 1866 BBL: 24 inch octagon Stock: varnished walnut Gauge: 44 RF Finish: blue/sun metal Grips: Serial Number: 15052 Class: Antique Condition: Very good as professionally restored overall. The finish on the barrel and magazine is an artificially aged, very attractive plum brown. The surfaces of the barrel and magazine are smooth and the barrel edges are sharp. The factory legend is clear. The loading port cover, and hammer, trigger, lever and saddle ring have a smooth brown patina. The receiver and crescent buttplate are in condition very little handling wear and a good looking aged patina. The side plate joints are tight and show minimal evidence of disassembly. The nicely figured replacement burl walnut stock and forearm have been re-varnished long ago but remain in good condition and shows only a few, very minor, storage and handling marks.
