Scarce WINCHESTER 1890 Slide Action .22 WRF Rifle
Easy Takedown Rifle in Scarce .22 Winchester Rimfire
Here we present a Winchester Model 1890 Slide Action Rifle chambered in .22 Winchester Rimfire, manufactured in 1909 in New Haven, Connecticut. In the late 1880s, the Winchester Repeating Arms Company asked John Moses Browning to design a replacement for the Model 1873 rifle, since the rim fire version of the Model 1873 had never achieved any great popularity. On June 26, 1888, a patent for the new design was issued to John & Matthew Browning. Under this patent, Winchester created the second repeating slide action .22 rifle ever successfully developed and manufactured, being narrowly edged out by the Colt Lightning small frame carbine. The Model 1890 proved to be the most successful repeating rim fire rifle for general all around shooting ever made by Winchester. Approximately 849,000 Model 1890 rifles were produced between 1890 and 1932. For many years, the Model 1890 was considered to be the standard for use in shooting galleries, hence its nickname of "gallery gun."
This one is equipped with Lyman flip up rear sight as well as a post or hooded fine bead front sight. This rifle is very well-balanced, not to heavy and not too light. It handles very well and takes down easily into two pieces as well!
The overall condition of the rifle is fine. 90% of the original blue finish remains. The markings are clear. The numbers match. The walnut stock shows use and remains smooth and solid. The bore is bright with sharp rifling. The action is excellent.
