This is a beautiful example of a very rare and documented "Special Order" Winchester model 1885 Deluxe High-Wall sporting rifle. The accompanying factory letter lists this rifle #75,2xx with a 30-inch round #3 barrel in .30 Gov't caliber, plain trigger, fancy pistol-grip stock, and forearm 16-1/2" in length with double checkering and two studs brazed to barrel. Sights to be supplied by customer. Received in warehouse July 17, 1896. Shipped from warehouse July 18, 1896, order #13906. This rifle has had its buttstock and crescent buttplate covered in an old rawhide or leather stitched wrap that is quite possibly as old as the gun itself. The barrel retains a large percentage of its original bluing (possibly 75-80%), bore condition shows shallow rifling but remains bright and shiny. The action and lever have turned to a dull gray patina with traces of case color in hidden areas. There is some light freckling of rust and tarnish in a few areas but nothing visually distracting from this lovely old timepiece. The forend is simply fantastic with its double checkering pattern and special ordered length, and the buttstock remains a mystery as we have not tried to remove the old leather wrap.
