Scarce Winchester Model 1886 Rifle in .33 Winchester

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)
