Item No.: 9261 Price : SOLD
Description :
Here is an original, 1st Model (Model 1879), Winchester-Hotchkiss Bolt Action Carbine chambered for the .45-70 Government cartridge. Benjamin Hotchkiss sold the rights to this rifle to Winchester in 1877. It is a bolt action design feeding from a 6-shot tubular magazine in the butt. Made from 1879 until 1899, this was the first bolt action rifle sold by Winchester. about 84,000 were produced. This rifle is in very good to fine condition with about 30% of its factory blued finish remaining. There is some overall finish loss with an overspeckling of brown patina on the trigger guard. There are some larger splotches of brown on the barrel and receiver ring. The receiver and butt plate retain about 70% of their blue. The barrel has less finish with a steel patina mixed with the brown. The bore and mechanics are excellent. The bore is bright and shiny with sharp rifling. The stock is in fine condition with a few dings and scratches from use. With its great bore and mechanics, this one should make a great shooter. Stock no. 24726
