Antique WINCHESTER 1886 Lever Action .35-56 WCF Rifle
Manufactured in 1889
Here we present a Winchester Model 1886 Lever Action Rifle, made in 1889 in New Haven, Connecticut. The 1886 was a collaboration between John Moses Browning and his brother, Matthew Sandifer Browning, to build a big game rifle to replace the Model 1876. This was Browning’s first repeating rifle design adopted by Winchester, and the design even gained the endorsement of Theodore Roosevelt, formerly a staunch proselyte of the 1876.
This rifle features a 26-inch round barrel chambered for .38-56 WCF. The top of the barrel is marked “MANUFACTURED BY THE/WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CONN. U.S.A.” The breech is marked “.38-56 W.C.F.”
The overall condition is very good. The blue finish on the barrel is about 85%. The markings are clear and legible. The stock is in nice shape. The bore is very good with strong rifling. The action on this rifle is excellent.
