    Description

    Exquisite, Unique, Fully Functional Miniature Winchester M1866 Rifle Custom Hand Crafted for the Consignor's Father by Master Gunsmith / Engraver Horacio Q. Acevedo A truly remarkable example of precision and craftsmanship the rifle is reminiscent of the interior works of a fine watch. 22" overall with 12 1/4" .20 caliber rifled octagonal barrel, 7/16" across the flats. Even exhibits the tiny correct original barrel markings just forward of the rear sight. Mechanism functions exactly as original in the most minute detail. Hinged door in the brass butt plate contains four piece cleaning rod, also exactly as original. Brass now with nice mellow patina, retaining 90% of the original bright blue with just some fading /mixing with brown patina on the magazine tube. Walnut stocks perfect. The gun is fitted with a saddle ring. Absolutely one of the most remarkable examples we've ever seen of custom miniature craftsmanship.
