Winchester Mdl. 1873, Cal. 38-40, Ser. 27604, Octagon 24" Barrel, Mfg 1888.
This is an estate gun. The owner thinks that the original owner was a westerner and it was decorated by some law enforcement officer, or, as was very common by a Native American. The condition is quite typical of an old ranch gun. Besides some rather vague remnants of blue the gun is covered a soft blue brown patina. It is surprisingly free of rust but there are several surface nicks particularly on the edges of the side plates and the octagon barrel. Surprisingly the magazine tube has about 70-75% of the original blue. The gun operates properly and the often missing dust is present and fully functional. The gun locks up tight and seems to operate properly.
The wood is in about the same condition as the metal parts. There appears to be a very small hairline crack on the fore arm. The butt has a few small dings and a couple nicks. The left side of the side has what appears to be vaguely stamped "JUDE". The right side has barely visible the number 101, possibly a rack number and the two mysterious stars made of brass studs.
The bore is slightly worn, the rifling is honestly quite visible and the lands are lightly frosted. I am sure it would be a quite competent shooter. But as an addition to a western collection or as an investment just outstanding. As always we guarantee you will be pleased with your purchase.......SHIPPED......$1995. OBO
