Octagon barrel chambered for the traditional .444 Henry flat cartridge. Full length magazine with gun metal brass third model receiver. Two piece American walnut stocks with case colored hammer and lever. Brass crescent buttplate with provision for cleaning rod. Factory mounted with sling swivels. Sporting front sight with nickel silver insert. Two line Winchester address on top barrel flat. Third pattern ladder rear sight with external spring inset into barrel. Niter blue finished loading gate. Excellent overall condition with over 80% factory applied factory blue finish remaining although turning plum is superb. Hammer and lever retain most of their mottled case colors with more vivid colors remaining in the more protected areas, brass receiver, forearm cap and buttplate have no indication of having every been disassembled. They have attained a wonderful aged mustard coloring and just give credence to the honesty and the untouched condition of this fine 1866 Winchester. Bore is bright with sharp strong rifling. Mechanics are crisp. This outstanding example has no issues and it would be a very difficult task to find a more honest, correct are finer condition standard rifle. From the Jim Linton Collection.
