Winchester 1886 Takedown 45-70

Post by Rube Burrows »

I have been contemplating selling one of my Winchester 1886 lever guns. This is one that I just don't shoot much and I have a couple custom sixguns in the works.

Specs
Winchster 1886 Miroku Takedown model in 45-70

previous owner mods
Cured the rebounding hammer
MVA Vernier tang sight.
MVA Hadley eye disk
MVA Spirit level front sight.
tang sight removed
original rear sight dovetail blank
Leather inside the lever for comfort.

Overall this is a beautiful rifle and shoots very nicely. Sights have way more adjustments than I could ever get to use around here.
Does come with box and paperwork.

Looking to get 2,300 plus shipping.

Additinal photos upon request.

Thanks. It is a very beautiful rifle. I just don't take it out much and there are some other things in my safe that could fill its role.
