Antique WINCHESTER Model 1886 LEVER .40-82 WCF Rifle
Manufactured in 1898
Here we present an antique Winchester Model 1886 Lever Action Rifle, made in 1898 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 fully octagonal barrel chambered for .40-82 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 “.40-82 W.C.F.”. The tang is marked “MODEL 1886”.
The overall condition is good. The metal surfaces have a mixed finish of blue and patina. The markings are clear and legible. The stock is solid with some sanding marks. The bore is very good, clean with sharp rifling. The action on this rifle is excellent.
