Winchester 1873 "3RD Model" .32/20wcf. 30" "1889"

Winchesters Model of 1873 Lever Action Sporting Rifle .32-20 with factory special order 30 inch Octagon Barrel (looks like a rapid taper?). The serial number of this example is 32186X placing date of manufacture in 1889. Overall condition is very good and untouched. The original factory finish has toned to a very nice even plum patina. The metal is smooth with no evidence of pitting. The Bore is way above average for a small caliber Winchester. The rifling is strong with shine. I would rate the bore a 7+ on a 1 to 10 scale. The action is tight, smooth and mechanically perfect. Wood to metal fit is perfect with a period repair done to the right upper comb of the butt stock. rare rifle, great shooter. Please phone Tommy at (760)-912-3761 or E-Mail all questions and concerns. $35.00 shipping, insurance will be additional.
