Winchester Model 1885 High Wall Single Shot Deluxe Sporting Rifle. The serial number of this example is 1026XX placing date of manufacture in 1906.

Failed to be mentioned in the Museum Letter is: Schuetzen Butt Plate, Factory Optic Sight Blocks and the Factory Single Set Trigger!, very typical of the information the shipping ledger lacks, inaccurate at best! .25/20 S.S. is the rare Stevens .25/20 chambering. Overall condition is excellent. 98+% original factory rust blue. The bore is minty and will rate a 10 on a 1 to 10 scale. Wood to metal fit is perfect with 99% original factory varnish remaining. This Rifle was well cared for and shows very little evidence of ever being fired. Please phone Tommy at (760)-912-3761 or e-mail all questions and concerns. $35.00 shipping.
