Winchester 1886 Semi-Deluxe Short Rifle .40-82 caliber s/n 53238 mfg 1891 - Special-order 21" octagon barrel; full mag; early-style uncapped, uncheckered pistol grip quarter-sawn walnut stock with ebony inlay and smooth steel shotgun butt. Barrel, mag and buttplate retain 99% of their original bright blue finish; receiver retains 99% brilliant case-colors; stocks retain all of their original varnish finish, bore appears unfired. Although Porter's research indicates four other 21" 1886s were produced, a rare combination of features makes this gun a one-of-a-kind.
