    This is a rather interesting single shot Model 1885 Winchester Low-Wall in obsolete 32-40 calibre. This rifle was manufactured in 1888 as evidenced by the serial number. The original calibre was 32 long and the purchaser specified the heavier number 2 barrel in 26” instead of the standard 26” number 1 barrel normally supplied. Originally in the 1885 catalogue the 32 long rifle barrel was specified at 24” long. This was later (but contemporaneously) re-chambered, lined and stamped for the 32-40 calibre.

    The rifle has a strong action with a nice two stage trigger release and good bore. The extractor is intact and the wood is good with a nice fit and the original ebony tipped forend. No issues with the wood other than the odd expected pressure dents and scuffs. The rifle is stamped with the Winchester Repeating Arms address on the top flat and the patent date of October 7th 1879 on the lower tang as it should be. The rifle has the correct rear sporting elevating rear slide sight and German silver foresight which was an optional extra. Windage is achieved by drifting the front sight on it brass mounting Tenon. There is some finish but mainly mellowed down to an even patina as can be seen.
    From John Campbell’s excellent book on the history and analysis of Winchester single shot rifles it is clear that this was a popular variation.
    Winchester low-walls were always in demand for a variety of uses including hunting and target shooting and can be found in a variety of barrel lengths and calibres. This is a decent example of a very popular rifle.
