Scarce Winchester Model 1890 Takedown originally chambered in .22 Short. This takedown rifle was made circa 1895. (Serial # 3578X). This rifle has a well-worn (possibly cleaned) patina. It is in very good overall condition for a 123+ 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.  I assume that the chamber has been deepened, but I haven’t had it checked. Most of the bluing has been cleaned or worn to a gray patina. The octagonal barrel is roughly 23″ overall and is marked “22 SHORT”. Markings are crisp. The walnut wood stock and forend are quite nice, with a medium walnut finish, showing little signs of having been refinished, and have just a few very small dings. The bore is gray and shows minor pitting, 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 reasonably-priced rifle should make a dandy shooter, and would look great if reblued or Cerakoted. It is also a good candidate for chamber deepening to .22 LR by a gunsmith. (BGMY-122)

A scarce refurbished Winchester Model 1893 Pump 12 Gauge Shotgun. Appears to be polished in-the-white and ready for rebluing or application of a modern finish, such as Cerakoting.  Has a 29″ barrel with no choke marking, but it gauges Modified. Note: This model can accept only 2-1/2″ or 2-9/16″-length shotgun shells. it will not accept 2-3/4″ shells.  So, unless you intend this as a “wall hanger”, this gun would be best utilized by someone who is already set up to handload 12 gauge shotshells. It should be fired only with blackpowder shells, or mild (low base) smokeless loads. Has one small pinned repair to the grip area that looks quite solid. It also has a dent in the magazine tube (see photo) that is near the end, and does not appear to affect the travel of the magazine spring. Appears to work well, mechanically. Serial number 538X indicates that it was manufactured circa 1894. A scarce gun, affordably priced! (KGCL-1893)

A very nice condition antique Winchester Model 1886 rifle chambered in .33 Winchester! This rifle serial # is 5334X, which places its date of manufacture in 1891.  But it is chambered in the sought-after .33 Winchester chambering, which was not introduced by Winchester until 1902.  So, obviously, this rifle went back to the factory for re-barreliing.  The barrel has Winchester rollmarks and a “P” cartouche. The muzzle face is in the white, which is correct for a factory barrel. The stock and forend appear to be factory replacements, with a shotgun-style butt and Winchester logo hard plastic buttplate.  The rich dark walnut stock and forend match well, and are in excellent condition. Has a 22-inch round barrel with full-length magazine. The 98% coverage bluing is excellent, so this rifle was very likely reblued at some point in its life. Has a very nice bore.  Since this is an altered gun, it lacks the collectibility of an original gun. But it is very uncommon to find a M1886 in an antique serial number range that is barreled in the desirable, hard-hitting .33 WCF cartridge. (PPKM-202)

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 scarce Winchester Model 1890 takedown pump action rifle chambered in .22 W.R.F. The top of the barrel is marked “-MANUFACTURED BY THE- / -WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN, CONN. U.S.A.-”, and at the receiver with “22 W.R.F.”. The upper tang is marked “WINCHESTER /  -MODEL 1890- /  PAT.JUNE 26-88.DEC.6-92.”. The lower tang is marked “5699X”. Barrel Length: 24″.  The front sight is a beaded blade dovetailed to the front of the barrel. The rear sight is a “V” notched leaf sight screwed to the rear of the barrel, adjustable for elevation. The upper tang is a drilled, tapped and filled for a tang sight (none included). Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are two-piece walnut with a grooved slide handle, straight grip and steel crescent buttplate. The slide handle has a nick on the left at the second groove in front of the mounting screw, light handling marks, and some discoloration from age and oil. The buttstock has a cluster of bruises on the right-rear, several scattered nicks, dings, scuffs and scratches with a concentration along the belly toward the toe and a non-threatening crack at the rear of the bottom tang. The LOP measures 12 3/4″ from the front of the trigger to the back of the buttplate. The plate has worn to white with scattered light nicks, scratches and surface oxidation. Overall, the stocks are in about Good-Very Good condition as Antique. Type of Finish: Blue & Case Color. Finish Originality: Appears original. Bore Condition: The bore is gray with well defined rifling. There is light erosion throughout the bore with infrequent light pitting. This should still be a good shooter.  Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 65% of its metal finish. The exposed portions of the case color components have mostly worn to white with remaining color seen at the top of the trigger guard, on the hammer, and on the inside, concealed when assembled. The barrel has most notable finish loss at the rear with finish thinning at all edges and scattered lighter finish wear forward of the rear sight. There are light nicks, scratches, and surface oxidation scattered throughout. The screw heads range from sharp to lightly tool marked with strong slots. The markings are clear. Overall, this rifle is in about Very Good-Fine condition as Antique. Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The action locks-up correctly. The hammer has a half-cock safety position. The rifle is chambered in .22 WRF, a cartridge originally developed to be more powerful than the standard .22 Long Rifle cartridge. With the development of new propellants and high-velocity .22 Long Rifle loadings, the .22 WRF lost favor with many shooters, although .22 W.R.F. cartridges are still regularly produced by CCI and they are available commercially from a number of Internet vendors. The rifle is in overall about Very Good-Fine condition with about 65% of its finish remaining. The rifle was made when the receiver and other parts were still color case hardened with a little bit of the figuring still visible on the exterior, more on the internal parts. This rifle has some normal handling wear, but the action is still tight and the bore shootable.  Because of the nostalgia factor, Winchester Model 1890 rifles have become very collectable in recent years, and those that were made before 1899 now bring a 30% or more premium!
