    Winchester M1873 Rifle Cal. .44-40 #269591 Mfg. 1888. 24" round barrel, full magazine. Metal dark and untouched with a coating of very fine, almost salt and pepper, pitting overall. Perfect bore, mechanically perfect, barrel markings illegible, other markings fine. Wood really excellent with nice smooth untouched patina and quite sharp, with just some minor handling marks. The butt plate, which was apparently protected exhibits just some surface rust and 50% blue. There are two extra screw holes on the tang where a sight was apparently mounted. The rear sight is a correct old Marbles replacement, original front sight interestingly with an ivory bead. Overall still a nice gun and quite desirable in this caliber with a fine bore.
