This deluxe checkered, pistol gripped, case colored receiver, deluxe rifle is very fine condition overall. With a half round-half octagon barrel this Second Model 1873 has a piano varnish finished stock with highly figured center cut crotch walnut. The assembly number on interior of lower tang matches the stock and buttplate. Features traditional two line Winchester barrel address, sporting blade front sight and semi-buckhorn elevator adjustable rear sight. The barrel and magazine retain over 80% of their respected faded blue finishes. The receiver retains approximately 30% faded case colors with balance having turned silver. The deluxe stocks retain most all of their varnished finishes with typical wear loss at forearm bottom and wrist from handling. A small chip of wood is missing on the forearm front left side and appears to be a very old and period chip. The bore is very fine with sharp rifling with very slight darkness in the grooves. The mechanics operate properly and smoothly. Special order barrel configurations are a great rarity in the Winchester collecting field. This rifle being a full deluxe with special order triple X wood (as indicated upon the tang), half octagon-half round barrel and checkered pistol grip stocks ad up to make this a superb opportunity.
