    Description

    WINCHESTER MODEL 1866 RIFLE - Serial number 156423, circa 1882. 24" octagon barrel in .44 rimfire calibre. All features as standard for this model including iron butt plate and forend cap. Legible barrel address with functioning action. Appropriate 1873 style rear sight. Walnut wood stocks.

    Condition: Brass frame has a mellow untouched patina with the exception of the left side plate. During the rifle's period of use someone lightly sanded the left side plate. The light sanding marks are visible under the patina the rifle acquired since the sanding. Barrel has been lightly cleaned and toned down with a chemical. The barrel doesn't appear to have been pitted prior to cleaning. Barrel finish blends nicely with the brown patina on the magazine tube. Lever, trigger, hammer and butt plate all have pleasing dark patina. Walnut wood stock and forend are very good showing normal wear. A very pleasing looking '66 rifle.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
