This rifle is a good friend of mine's that I am trying to help him sell. Moderators if this is not okay please remove the ad I .will take care of the process for him and be responsible for it.

Winchester Model 1885 antique in 32-40.Made in 1895 I believe.Ships to your door with no ffl.
Gun is in really nice shape for the age .I do not know every detail of the options on the gun. I am not a Winchester high wall expert. The bore looks good. I did not run a patch through it (forgot my cleaning rod)but it is not pitted. if anything just a bit dull I would say.Barrel is a #3 and so marked on the barrel.


I can get more picture to those interested.

price is $3000 plus freight cost

Does the breech view look odd to anyone else?

Nice rifle and having the hardware for a palm rest it might have also been used in a match. Appears it isn't drilled and tapped for scope blocks. So it also makes one wonder if there might be a set of match sights for the rifle and that is the question that I would now like to ask.

The photo showing the top of the action seems to show that the top of the breech block has been cut off above the extractor,

Yep, it looks that way.  I didn't see that the block was dropped a bit.

You might want to post the barrel length & twist as well as the width across the flats at the muzzle and just in front of the receiver.

Nice looking rifle.

I forgot  to take those numbers. it's a #3 Barrel, I would assume that the dimensions and twist would be standard?
