Antique WINCHESTER Model 1887 Lever Action SHOTGUN Designed by JM BROWNING
FIRST YEAR PRODUCTION Coach & Law Enforcement Gun!
Here we present an antique Winchester Model 1887 Lever Action Shotgun, made circa 1887 in New Haven, Connecticut. This model saw just under 65,000 made. These guns were designed by the famous John Moses Browning and are considered the first successful lever action shotgun. Unfortunately, they were fast eclipsed by pump action shotguns. They came in both 10 and 12 gauges, and various barrel lengths including the “riot” length of 20 inches. The riot length version is considerably scarcer.
As one can imagine, these higher capacity shotguns, especially those either made shorter at the factory or cut down, made great companions for those on guard duty, riding shotgun on a coach, and for law enforcement. Perhaps other, more nefarious characters also found them useful. Of course, who can forget the short, pistol-gripped version that the Terminator used?
The overall condition is very good. Refinished metal surfaces. The barrel was cut shorter at some point. Strong, crisp action. Reflective bore with light texturing throughout. The walnut stock is solid and lightly sanded/refinished. Serial numbered “2049”. Here is your chance to own one of the first successful repeating shotguns from Winchester!
