    this rifle came from a good friends grandad and was ordered with several special items, half round- half oct barrel, takedown and short magazine. the tang sight I think was added later. it has taken a boat load of deer and varmites on the farm and is in very good condition with a ex bore for being over 100 years old. I have hunted with it, but have only shot a few varmints with it. maybe this year I will get to shoot a deer with.

    Those tang sights allow you to "really stretch the barrel" on a lever gun.

    Love the old Winchester rifles. Back in the day they could be had for a fairly reasonable price (the local gun store always had a few, early Winchester lever guns on the rack). Not anymore. Even a pedestrian Model 94 from the early 1900's will command a decent price.

    Nothing like an old Colt or an old Winchester to get you day dreaming about gunslinging and how it was before anyone thought of a gun any different than a pick, hammer or shovel. True Americana that is recognized the world over and associated with the Wild West.
