This Winchester was produced in 1906. The rifle’s serial number is 271671. This rifle is a second model with the half factory nickel finish. It is chambered for the 22 Short. The magazine loading slot has the cut out for the speed loader that was used by gallery guns. The bore is in very fine condition. The sights are the standard style sights for this model. The action works tight with no sloppyness. The barrel retains all of the original aged bluing. The bluing would rate a 98% overall condition. The original reciever and bolt plating would rate a 97% overall condition. The buttplate plating would rate a 89% overall condition. The stock and pump handle have no cracks or damage. The wood retains all of the original finish. This is a very fine condition stunning looking Model 1890! This factory half nickel finish gallery rifle is quite rare. Not many of these guns were ordered in this finish. Being a gallery gun also, is a nice plus for this rifle! The condition of this rifle is really amazing considering the hard use these gallery guns were subjected to. This is certainly a high value collectors grade Winchester for the serious collector!

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.
