.22

A Winchester Model 1890 Takedown originally chambered in .22 Short. This takedown rifle was made circa 1893. (Serial # 2984X). This rifle has been freshly Cerakoted in flat black color, for a weatherproof finish. There are a few pits on the crescent buttplate visible under the Cerakoting. This rifle appears to be mechanically unaltered except that the magazine tube loading slot is shaped for cartridges longer than .22 Short–most likely .22 Long.  The octagonal barrel is roughly 23″ overall and is marked “22 SHORT”. The walnut wood stock and forend are nice, with dark original finish, with just a few small dings. Mechanically, it appears to function well, but the hammer will not hold quarter-cock, when the trigger is pulled. The bore shows minor corrosion. However it still has very distinct rifling. The screw heads are all in nice shape. The sights appear to be factory original and unaltered. This should make a dandy shooter. It is a good candidate for chamber deepening to .22 LR.  (EPLN-655)

A Smith & Wesson First Model of 1891 single-shot .22 rimfire pistol with British proof marks!. This is one of just 862 that were manufactured between 1893 and 1905 — making it truly very rare.  (Serial #: 1556X, so this was manufactured circa 1895.) Some of the parts for these pistols interchange with S&W double-action top-break revolvers. It is estimated that less than 50 of the 8″ barrel length pre-1899 examples have survived, worldwide, and of those, perhaps only a handful have British proofmarks. Condition is Antique Excellent, with a remarkable amount of original factory nickel finish, with flaking losses mainly on the barrel from holster wear. (See photos.) Has scarce original  S&W gutta percha two-screw target grips that are in remarkably good condition for their age. Original factory target sights.  Included is a very quaint period leather locking flap holster with the tooled initials “M.L.P.” on the flap. I’ve never seen one of these in such great condition!

Scarce Winchester Model 1890 Takedown originally chambered in .22 Short. This takedown rifle was made circa 1893. (Serial # 2823X). This rifle has a very nice even and pleasant patina, it is in very good overall condition for a 125-year-old rifle! It appears to be unaltered except that the magazine tube loading slot is shaped for cartridges longer than .22 Short–most like .22 Long.  Most of the bluing has faded to patina except for the top of the bolt, which still shows most of its factory bluiing. The octagonal barrel is roughly 23″ overall and is marked “22 SHORT”. Markings are crisp, indicating that the metal has never been re-blued. The walnut wood stock and forend are quite nice, with dark original finish, showing no signs of having been refinished, and have just a few dings, primarily of the left side. The bore shows minor corrosion, however it still has very distinct rifling. The screw heads are all in nice shape, with only one showing any signs of ever being inexpertly tightened. The sights appear to be factory original and unaltered. This should make a dandy shooter. And it is a good candidate for chamber deepening to .22 LR. (XWGZ-100)
