    RARE, Pre 1918 Winchester 1879 Patent (Mod 1885) ‘Winder Musket’ .22 Long Round Calibre Falling Block Single Shot U.S. Military Training Rifle. Sn 11161 - 11161

    The Winder musket was a .22 calibre training rifle used by the U.S Army in the early 20th Century. The weapon was the brainchild of Colonel C. B. Winder, who advocated marksmanship training with a rifle of similar size and weight to a service rifle but chambered in .22 rim fire, which was both economical and suitable for indoor ranges. The Winder Musket was based on the Winchester Model 1885 single shot rifle. Although it was never officially referred to as the Winder musket, the weapon was informally named in honour of Colonel Winder, and has since generally been referred to as the Winder musket. The Winder Musket was superseded by the 1922 Model bolt-action training rifle. Winder Musket serial number records are sketchy having several gaps in the record log. Winders made in 1918 and 1919 were given the designation ‘Model 87’. This is an excellent original example of the rare Winder Musket. It has no designation marks but does have crisp patent and manufacturer detail stamped on the top steel action tang ‘Pat Oct 7th 79 (1879) Winchester Trade Mark’ and serial number ‘102269’ on the lower action tang. It has a 28” round steel barrel (43 3/4” overall), an adjustable rear target sight and block & blade fore sight. The barrel is stamped with calibre detail ’22 Long R’. It has a steel butt plate, fore end block, barrel bands and a single sling swivel. The metal retains its original blue finish. The Musket has excellent all original undamaged wood work which has just minor bumps and bruises consistent with age and service use. It has an external hammer and its falling block action operates as it should. The weapon strips, cocks and dry fires. Price for this rare piece includes deactivation certificate & UK delivery.
