#4932 Winchester 1886 OBFMCB 38/56WCF

Description

#4932 Winchester 1886 OBFMCB 38/56WCF, 71XXX range (1892), G-VG bore and action, about a 6-7 on a scale of 10 now, but should clean much better. It has a few dark spots that should scrub out and has good rifling with just some light lead build-up and scale in the grooves. Rough buttstock with two right side plug repairs to insets, probably a plaque and a compass or a large coin (see photos) as well as some serious dings, reasonable fit to the metal. The forearm has serious wear to the left front, probably from bumping against something, such as a wagon seat, and also bumps and dings. VG metal, no pitting of consequence, but a slightly gritty feeling surface, like a piece of #460 grit sandpaper. Overall just a thin dark grey-brown patina on the barrel, magazine and frame. This old Winchester became a forgotten step-child because this cartridge went obsolete well before WW2 as better cartridges were in use and easily available. But now, 70+ years later with the popularity of the “Cowboy Action” shooting, this mild recoil caliber can be easily found as reloaded by on-line dealers, to where this caliber has finally gained in popularity again. With the average conditioned 1886 found in gun shows usually well above $2000, this one should be a decent “starter gun” for a restoration and a good value at $1745. About G-VG as described.
