Winchester Model 1890 Takedown 2nd Model .22 W.R.F. – Made in 1898

Scarce Winchester Model 1890 Takedown 2nd Model chambered in .22 W.R.F..  1898 production. (Serial #  5759X.) This is an early production style takedown with case-colored receiver. Has a standard 24-inch tapered octagon barrel. This rifle is in unusually nice condition. Good bore with a light ring halfway down that should not affect accuracy.  The action is tight and functions well. Nice solid walnut stock and forend with no cracks. Faint original color case hardening is still visible on the receiver. The .22 W.R.F. cartridges are still factory-made by Winchester and surprisingly still available despite the current .22 rimfire ammo drought. Can be shot as-is, or it is a good candidate for re-lining to .22 Long Rifle. Because of the nostalgia factor, Winchester Model 1890 rifles have become very collectible in recent years, and those that were made before 1899 now bring a 30% or more premium! (EEIU-337)
