This Winchester is a first year production from 1905-1906. The rifle’s serial number is 7587. This gun has the 20 inch round barrel chambered for the 22 Short only. The sights are original to this gun. The receiver is the early style with the front lugs inside the receiver frame. The bore has pitting but the lands are still sharp. This certainly is a very good shootable bore. The stock and forend are in very fine condition. There is no damage or cracks with this wood. The wood retains the original factory finish. The original bluing is slightly faded. The receiver shows nice high polish finishing. The bolt also shows high polish finish. The bluing would rate a 93% or better condition. This is a fine condition early model 1906 that has all of the early features for this model. It would be hard to find a first model in this nice of condition as this was a very popular model and saw much use.

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.
