*LATE WINCHESTER MODEL 1886 SADDLE RING CARBINE. SN 152764. Cal. 45-90. Standard grade carbine with 22″ rnd bbl, full magazine, square base front sight and 2000 yd carbine ladder rear sight. Left side of the receiver has a stud & ring. Ring is wrapped in cloth. Mounted with uncheckered, very nicely figured, straight grain American walnut with straight stock and blued carbine buttplate without trap. This carbine was produced in 1912 at a time when the American frontier was settling down but still had outlaws roaming the west. These carbines were still popular with horsemen of the era, law enforcement and others who required a quick pointing shoulder arm that fired a heavy, high velocity cartridge. The cartridges for the ’86 carbine were just that. They were suitable for literally any North America big game such as moose, elk, buffalo or grizzly bear. They usually saw hard service and are rarely found today with high orig finish. PROVENANCE: Woody Frey Collection. CONDITION: Extremely fine plus. Overall retains about 99% crisp, orig factory finish with bright blue and brilliant case colors. Buttplate retains about all of its orig blue.
