WINCHESTER 1886 Lever Action Chambered in SCARCE .33 WCF Caliber RIFLE C&R
Iconic Repeating Rifle Manufactured in 1912
Here we present a Winchester Model 1886 Lever Action Rifle, made in 1912 in New Haven, Connecticut and chambered in the scarce .33 Winchester caliber. The 1886 was a collaboration between John Moses Browning and his brother, Matthew Sandifer Browning, to build a big game rifle to replace the Model 1876. This was Browning’s first repeating rifle design adopted by Winchester. The 1886 rifle, often called “the best rifle in the world”, even made Theodore Roosevelt, later President of the United States, very fond of the large caliber Model 1886 working rifle during his western adventures on the plains. From 1886 through 1935, almost 160,000 carbines and rifles were produced with calibers that ranged from the smaller 33WCF to the largest, 50-100, with the most popular caliber being the .45-70 and the 45-90. This rifle was a great improvement over the Model 1876. Its shorter, streamlined frame proved very popular and was well received by sportsmen, shooters, and law enforcement groups alike. The Model 1886 continued the trend towards chambering heavier rounds, and had an all-new and considerably stronger locking-block action than the toggle-link Model 1876.
The overall condition is fine. The action is strong and crisp. The bore is shiny bright with sharp rifling. The stock has been upgraded with nicely figured walnut. A super Model 1886 by Winchester!
