Single Shot Rifle Made in 1891
Here we present an antique Winchester Model 1885 Low Wall Rifle, chambered in .25 WCF, made in 1891 in New Haven, Connecticut. Ironically, this was Winchester’s first single shot rifle, the company having been founded on its winning lever action repeater design. John Moses Browning, the famed gun designer who forever changed the firearms landscape, began his career with this rifle in the 19th Century before dominating the world scene in the 20th Century.
The top of the barrel is marked “MANUFACTURED BY THE/WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CONN. U.S.A.”. The rear of the barrel is marked “25 W.C.F.” The barrel is a #1 octagonal and a “1” is found on the bottom.
The overall condition is fine. The original blue finish is 80% with case colors silvering out. The markings are clear and legible. The stock is in great shape. The bore is in very good condition with strong rifling. The action on this rifle is excellent, strong and crisp.
