We just obtained this rifle. Was a special run done as a distributor exclusive in '03. Its been in storage at Win since then. We managed to buy it over the weekend and will have it here ASAP (importing)

Winchester 1885 High Wall 28" 45-70 Govt SERIAL #1 (Serial# 00001MX85A)
Action: Single Shot Lever, Steel Receiver, Falling Block Action • Finish: Gloss Blued • Barrel: 28" Octagonal • Sights: Drilled and Tapped for Scope - Marbles Blade Front Sight and Rear Tang Mounted Peep Sight, Semi-Buckhorn Rear • Stock: Checkered Walnut Straight Grip Stock and Crescent Buttplate with Top Strap • Weight: 9 lbs. • Overall Length: 44.5"


This rifle is now in store and still available. Will be online soon.


Q: Hey guys, just to confirm, the price increase from this beauty over a ‘standard limited’ unit is the serial number only. Not a complaint btw, just a question.

A: I lot of it. Of course this one has the OCT barrel, tang site, Butt plate, etc. We sold a few from this series years ago but there have been none for years in 45/70.....


online already!!!
