This Winchester was produced in 1889. The rifle’s serial number is 290840. This Winchester has the standard 24 inch round barrel chambered for the 32 W.C.F. [32-20] cartridge. The bore is in bright fine condition with sharp lands. The bore has no pitting or other issues. The front sight is the folding globe sight with the blade sight in the down position and the post and dot in the up position. The rear sight is the factory standard rear sight with sliding elevator. The tang sight is the tall graduated disc sight with screw out base to dismount the sight. These sights are quite rare to see on Winchesters. Most of these sights are found on large bore Winchesters. To find these sights on small bore guns is very rare. The action is very tight and not worn. The action works smoothly with a crisp trigger pull. The carrier and lever springs are strong and not worn. The dust cover is tight on the rail with no play. The hammer and lever show colorful faded color cased finish. The original bluing would rate 90% or better condition. The loading gate has the nitre blued finish. This rifle shows very little sign of use or being fired. The stock and forend are in very fine condition. There is no damage or cracks to the wood. The original finish is intact. This was a very well cared for gun that has survived the years with dignity. This Winchester would be a stunning addition to any collection with these rare sights!

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
