WINCHESTER 1890 2ND MODEL .22 WRF
1890 2nd Model.
Steel is in good condition, there are nicks, dings, rub marks and rust freckling. Barrel and magazine tube have much of the original bluing with some freckling. The action appears to have been scrubbed at some point, but is now turning a brown patina. The gun appears to have had a tang sight on it at one time, as the bluing on the tang has not been scrubbed and the rear tang screw is too long and protrudes through the lower tang.
Bore is dark with some pitting and strong rifling.
Wood is in good condition, with nicks, dings, dents and gouges.
She is in good working order and shoots well. I put 50 rounds of CCI ammo through her, shooting at rimfire silhouette targets and had no trouble knocking down the chickens at 25 yards and the pigs at 50. I can't see well enough to shoot iron sights beyond 50 yards.
She is a lovely little gun and has a pleasing patina that would look great on the wall but is in good enough condition to make an enjoyable companion for walks in the woods.
