    Winchester Second Model 1873 Rifle. Caliber .32 WCF. Serial number 338639B. Full length 24" octagonal barrel, with adjustable buckhorn rear sight, and excellent bore. Complete with proper serrated-edge dust cover. The original stock and forearm have been replaced with a beautiful curly maple that gives the stock an almost 3-D effect. The side plates have been richly blued and contemporarily engraved with a patriotic scene on the left side and an Indian chief in feather headdress on the right side. The engraving has been enhanced gold accents. The original blue elsewhere has taken on nice plum tones. The rifle appears to be mechanically tight and in its enhanced form, makes a superb impression. Sold with a one page factory letter, dated July 14, 2009 on Winchester Repeating Fire Arms letterhead tracing the rifle's history from May 16, 1890.
