Description

#4594 Winchester 1866-SRC (AKA, “The Yellow Boy”) 44RF with a very decent bore, having strong decent rifling with the usual black powder darkness in the grooves and no appreciable pitting at all. VG action …but is either missing the bolt face with the dual RF firing pins, or this is a factory return and conversion to 44Henry CF. Serial numbered in the 47XXX range (1870 mfgr). New York style period engraving on all major parts except the barrel, and typical NorthWest wood carved as was popular in that area in the 1870s-80s. There is liberal thinning silver plate still on the frame (50%+ coverage and 30% density), but the barrel does have scattered medium to heavy “rag pitting”, most likely due to long storage in a closed gun case or scabbard. Definitely correct engraving and wood work, as can be seen in several gun cataloges and books where NorthWest guns are pictured, and this was one of six similarly engraved carbines collected by an old collector in Washington state back in the 1960s. He had them pictured in some collectors magazine back then, but I was not able to get that copy. I bought this one when the collection was broken up after he passed away. Execpt for the barrel pitting, this is a desirable and scarce ’66 carbine! VG++ $12,250
