  • Beautiful Factory Engraved High Relief Winchester 1866 Ulrich Signed.
Made in 1872. Absolutely beautiful Winchester high relief 1866. Barrel is 24” long, and has a brown patina with light pitting. Frame is elaborately engraved in high relief with tight deluxe scrolls. Left-hand side has two panels with two deer and right-hand side has two panels with an elk and deer. Wood is good. Forearm is original to gun. Butt stock is well made period replacement. This is not uncommon, fifteen out of twenty known high relief guns in existence have replacement butt stocks. This is due to Winchester using the finest wood which broke easily. Gun is signed by John Ulrich (one of Winchester best engravers and would only sign his finest work).

These high relief guns regularly trade in the six figures. Recently one sold in 2018 at an auction for over $500,000. This gun is lacking in condition compared to some, but is certainly worth the money and will not cost you an arm and a leg. Beautiful factory engraved high relief Winchester 1866.

  • 44 Henry Rimfire. The first digit of the serial number is partially obscured, so we don't have a year of manufacture. A lot of these guns were made in the 40,000 serial range, so there is a pretty good chance this gun was made in 1870. Barrel has gray to brown patina. Frame has a coat of lacquer over the brass. Wood is very good.

  • Excellent Winchester 1866 Rifle. Made in 1878. This is a superb example! 97% of the original blue finish on the barrel. Wood is very good with slight shrinkage at the butt stock. Brass frame is excellent with an even patina. This is a late 3rd model which still has the brass butt plate, but it is a transitional with an iron forend cap. Bore is bright and shiny. Top notch Winchester 1866!
