Fabulous Early Deluxe Factory Engraved Winchester Model 1890 Slide Action Rifle with Casehardened Receiver and Deluxe Walnut Stock

Lot 82: Fabulous Early Deluxe Factory Engraved Winchester Model 1890 Slide Action Rifle with Casehardened Receiver and Deluxe Walnut Stock

by Rock Island Auction Company

May 2, 2014, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $65,000 - $90,000

Description: Fabulous Early Deluxe Factory Engraved Winchester Model 1890 Slide Action Rifle with Casehardened Receiver and Deluxe Walnut StockThis is a beautiful example of an extremely rare deluxe factory engraved and highly embellished early Second Model Winchester Model 1890 slide action rifle, manufactured in late 1894. This is a beautiful Second Model that has the new takedown feature, but still retains the earlier concealed locking lugs of the First Model. These Second Models were produced for only a very short time between serial numbers 15,522 and 32,616 with this rifle being a late production model. This beautiful rifle has a very desirable factory "No. 8" engraving pattern that depicts a very rarely seen standing buffalo scene on one side, and a standing deer scene on the obverse. These engraving patterns were almost exclusively used on large frame lever action rifles such as the models 1886, 1892 and 1894 rifles. This pattern is shown on page 218 and 221 of "The Book of Winchester Engraving" by R.L. Wilson. The engraved scene itself is a semi-circular clamshell shaped panel with the standing buffalo in a prairie scene. The obverse depicts the same style of clamshell shaped panel with the standing deer in a slightly wooded scene. Both panels are flanked by beautiful medium sized tight scroll engraving that has a fine line border around the scroll engraving with heart-shaped designs as the border around the edges of receiver. The lower sides of the receiver also depict a wavy line pattern with single punch dot accents. The engraving was also applied on the top and front edge of the receiver, with a fine-line border around the edges of the stock and action group, and also that frames the upper tang factory markings and serial number. Although the engraving is not signed the beautiful detail could certainly be the work of John Ulrich, a Master Engraver of Winchester rifles or certainly someone in his shop. The side of the lower tang is stamped with factory work order number "3681" and "XXX" signifying the grade of wood. The rifle has been fitted with a beautiful extra fancy grade burl walnut pistol grip stock. The stock itself has an original Winchester hard rubber grip cap with a very fine line checkered pattern on each side of the pistol grip. It is also fitted with a standard 12 groove walnut pump handle that has just a hint of figure at the very front. The octagon barrel has the early Winchester markings "------MANUFACTURED BY THE -----/-----WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CONN. U.S.A.-----". The rear of the barrel has the caliber markings of "22 LONG", which is very rare in itself as before 1919 this chambering was only used on a very limited basis. The barrel is fitted with the special order 3/4 length tubular magazine tube and it has the standard adjustable (slightly longer version) sporting rear sight and model 21 front sight. This beautiful rifle has the Winchester rust blue finish on the barrel and magazine tube with the receiver, trigger guard/lower tang/ hammer and buttplate all being casehardened finish.Manufacturer: WinchesterModel: 1890-RifleBBL: 24 inch octagonStock: walnutGauge: 22 longFinish: blue/casehardenedGrips: Serial Number: 27937

Condition Report: Excellent with 90% of the slightly faded original blue finish showing edge and high spot wear on the barrel and magazine tube, and wear and blue loss on the underside of the barrel and magazine tube where the pump handle has rubbed against the metal surface. The breech bolt assembly retains 98% plus of the original blue finish. The receiver retains 80% plus of the original case colors with the lower stock frame showing 50% of the original case colors, both having faded from age. The hammer retains 75% of its case colors and the buttplate retains half of its case colors. The buttstock and forend both retain 98% plus of the respective high polish piano varnish finish showing some minor handling marks/scratches on the right side of the stock, and some minor chipping of the finish around the edges of the buttplate and around the tang of the lower frame. The checkering is sharp. This is a super rare early Winchester Model 1890 slide action rifle with beautiful and very rare factory engraved with large animal game scenes with an exceptionally rare highly figured burl walnut stock. Factory Engraved Model 1890's of this high level are extremely rare!

by Rock Island Auction Company

May 2, 2014, 9:00 AM CST

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $8,500 - $13,000

Description: Extremely Rare, Sharps Model 1855 U.S. Navy Breech Loading Rifle with Rollin White Patent MarkingsThis is an extremely rare example of the approximately 263 Model 1855 Navy rifles manufactured by the Sharps Rifle Co., circa 1856. At least 200 of these rifles were received by the U.S. Navy in 1857 and issued to the frigates USS Wabash, USS Merrimack, USS Plymouth, USS Mississippi, and USS Minnesota. The rifle has a distinctive 27 inch round barrel with stud for a saber bayonet near the muzzle and a carbine forearm.

The slant breech receiver has a Maynard tape-priming device marked "EDWARD MAYNARD/PATENTEE 1856" on the magazine door. The side of the lock plate is marked "R. WHITE'S/PATENT/1855". Approximately 50 of the Navy Model 1855 rifles were initially manufactured with a Rollin White self-cocking device.

The 38 altered Model 1855 Navy rifles retained the "R. WHITE" patent markings on the lock plate. The remaining 201 Model 1855 Navy rifles had Sharps markings on the lock plate. This is one of the very few Model 1855 Navy rifles with "R WHITE" marked lock plate extant. The upper receiver tang is marked "SHARP'S/PATENT/1848" in three lines followed by the serial number "20430". The barrel band, patch box and buttplate are brass.

The stock and forearm have been reoiled but remain in very good overall condition. The Maynard tape primer is complete and functional. This is an extremely rare example of a scarce Sharps Model 1855 Navy Breech Loading rifle that is one of the 38 examples with "R. WHITE" markings on the lock plate and standard Sharps Model 1855 action.

Rock Island, IL, USA

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $4,000

Description: U.S. Navy Contract Colt Model 1911 Pistol with HolsterThis is an example of a U.S. Navy Contract Colt Model 1911 Semi-Automatic pistol. This pistol was shipped in the second Navy contract delivery of 1,000 pistols, shipped to the Brooklyn Navy Yard in August 1912. This very scarce pistol is accompanied by an equally rare early Model 1916 patent leather holster that is dated 1913 on the back side. The slide has the early short two-line/two-block Colt factory patent dates and address of "PATENTED APR.20. 1897/SEPT.9.1902. DEC.19.1905. FEB.14. 911" followed by "COLT'S PT.F.A.MFG.CO./HARTFORD.CT.U.S.A.", with the circled Rampant Colt logo stamped behind the serrations on the left side of the slide. The right side of the slide is marked "MODEL OF 1911 U.S. NAVY", and it has the small "H" inspection mark on the back of the slide above the firing pin. The left side of the frame is marked "UNITED STATES PROPERTY" and the right side has the serial number "No. 43616" behind the slide stop hole. The left side of the frame is marked with the circled "WGP" inspection mark of Major Walter G. Penfield. The slide is fitted with the narrow/thin profile front sight with the early round top rear sight. It still has the smooth trigger, type 3, slotted magazine release, checkered slide stop, thick thumb safety and wide checkered hammer spur. The complete barrel is marked with a separate "P" and "H" on top of the chamber, with a "J" stamped on the left side of the lug and a "5" in front of the lug. It has the checkered walnut grips with diamond pattern around the screws. It is complete with a half-tone blued magazine with the pinned base and a lanyard loop on the underside.Manufacturer: ColtModel: 1911BBL: 5 inch roundStock: Gauge: 45 ACPFinish: blueGrips: walnut checkeredSerial Number: 43616

Condition Report: Period refurbished. The slide retains most of an arsenal dipped blue finish (not polished) and has clear sharp markings. The frame and remaining components retain half of the same blue finish with wear and blue loss on the front grip strap mixed with thinning and browning on the mainspring housing and grip safety, with the barrel having a browned out finish. The grips are in very good condition with distinct checkering on both sides showing wear across the tops of the checkering on both sides. The holster is good plus with a medium brown oily finish overall with nice markings on the front flap, with tight stitching overall, mixed with some age cracking. The maker's mark on the back is unreadable with the 1913 dated restamped over the original date. This is still a good representative U.S. Navy Contract Colt manufactured Model 1911 pistol.

Description: U.S. Army Contract Remington-UMC Model 1911 Semi-Automatic Pistol This is an very nice example of a scarce late WWI Remington-UMC U.S. Army Model 1911 contract pistol. These rare pistols were manufactured in late 1918 early 1919, using their own serial number block of 1 to 21,676, with this pistol being manufactured in early 1918. This series of 1911 pistol was manufactured in total by the Remington Arms-U.M.C. Co., in Bridgeport, Connecticut with no contracted parts, with almost all of these pistols being disposed of after WWI because they did not conform to the standardization requirements for part interchangeability with the Colt Model 1911 pistol. The left side of the slide has the three line, two block markings of "PATENTED DEC.19.1905/FEB.14.1911.AUG.19.1913./COLT'S PT.F.A.MFG.CO." followed by "MANUFACTURED BY/REMINGTON ARMS UMC CO.

The serial number "NO 3418" is stamped on the right side of the frame above the trigger. It is fitted with an all blued barrel with proofmarks. The rear of the slide above the firing pin stop is stamped with a single letter "E" provisional inspection mark and so is the left side of the trigger guard bow. This scarce Model 1911 is complete with one Remington two-tone blue magazine with the double pinned base plate.Manufacturer: Remington UMCModel: M1911BBL: 5 inch roundStock: Gauge: 45 ACPFinish: blueGrips: walnut checkeredSerial Number: 3418

Condition Report: Very fine with 99% of the restored blue finish overall. The grips are very good with distinct checkering on both sides, with even honest wear across the tops of the checkering mixed with some minor handling marks. Mechanically excellent. A very nice looking professionally restored Remington-UMC Model 1911 pistol.

The Model 1866 was the first gun manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Co., after its charter was granted by the State of Connecticut in May 1866. The Model 1866 established the association between the Winchester lever-action rifle and the American frontier. Equally desired by frontiersmen and Native Americans, the "Yellow Boy", more than any other firearm, deserves the title 'The Gun That Won the West'.Manufacturer: WinchesterModel: 1866BBL: 24 inch octagonStock: walnutGauge: 44 RFFinish: blueGrips: Serial Number: 36806

The barrel has a flat, un-crowned muzzle and is roll stamped with the early first style legend "HENRY'S PATENT OCT. 16.1860/KING'S-PATENT-MARCH 29.1866" in two lines ahead of the rear sight. The upper barrel band has an integral steel front sight and the barrel has the early two leaf carbine rear sight with "300" and "500" yard elevation markings. The magazine has the early screw-in plug. The receiver has a staple mounted saddle ring on the left side, small lever and large lever catch with flat head. The hammer has the early coarse knurling. The brass buttplate has the Henry style sharp pointed heel with hinged trap door.

All of the visible serial numbers match. A small assembly number "188" is stamped on the left side of the lower tang in front of the serial number. A non-factory period marking: "159 H. H. BND" is punch marked on the left side of the receiver above the saddle ring (see photo).

The barrel bands have a silver-gray patina and the upper band screw is missing. With the exception of the non-factory marking, the receiver is in near excellent condition. The receiver has a very attractive dark mustard yellow patina with perfect side plate joints. Wear is limited to a few insignificant scratches and some small spots of surface discoloration of the top of the receiver. The buttplate has the same patina as the receiver and is excellent. The hammer, trigger and lever retain 80% or more of the muted case colors. The stock and forearm are excellent with nearly all of the original finish and display only minimal storage and handling marks. Winchester Model 1866 carbines were working firearms that inevitably show age and hard service. Early production flatside carbines are scarce in any condition and are only rarely encountered with the amount of original finish found on this outstanding example. This is an extraordinary example of a first year production Model 1866 flatside carbine that would be a standout piece in the most advanced collection of Winchester firearms.
