Description

1890 Winchester Repeating Arms Company (WRA Co) USA Model 1887 Law Enforcement & Stage Coach Companies 10 Gauge Under Lever Action Shotgun. Sn 18864 - 18864

The Model 1887 was one of the first truly successful repeating shotguns . Its lever-action design was chosen at the behest of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, best known at the time as manufacturers of lever-action firearms such as the Winchester model 1873. Designer John Browning suggested that a pump-action would be much more appropriate for a repeating shotgun, but Winchester management's position was that, at the time, the company was known as a "lever-action firearm company", and felt that their new shotgun must also be a lever-action for reasons of brand recognition. The shotguns were used widely by U.S. law enforcement agencies and stagecoach companies. This Model 1887 in UK obsolete calibre black powder 10 gauge is furnished with a 32” barrel. The metalwork has been re-blued to a high standard at some point in its life. Its smooth bore has just light staining consistent with age. The action tang has crisp Winchester name and 1886 Patent detail. It has a bead fore sight and grooved frame rear sight. There are no visible manufacturer marks on top of the barrel. It has original wood furniture with WRA Co signature chequered horn butt plate with white spacer. It’s under lever action is crisp and it cocks and dry fires crisply. The left side of the action has crisp Winchester monogram. The weapon is serial number 22628 which dates it to 1890. The price includes UK Delivery. NB As an antique obsolete black powder calibre shotgun no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 18864
