'Yellow Boy' Desirable brass frame lever action repeating rifle chambered in .44 Rimfire, manufactured circa 1867-1898. The iconic 1866 was the first firearm to bear the Winchester name, it was produced in three different variations(carbine, rifle & musket), went through four model changes and production lasted from 1866-1898 with an estimated 170,101 rifles produced. This rifle features a 20" round barrel, full-length 13 round tubular magazine, fixed front sight that appears to have been modified to accept a blade, flip-up "L" shape dual leaf rear sight, two barrel bands, brass frame with hand crafted sideplates, saddle ring, curved trigger, straightened hammer spur, hand crafted loading gate, smooth walnut forend and a straight grip shoulder stock with metal carbine buttplate. The forend shows impressions from previously installed tacks and the butt stock has a buffalo hide buffalo effigy on the left side, brass turtle effigy on the right side & leather wrapped wrist(covering the serial number). Includes a Crow parfleche painted scabbard. The barrel display & magazine tube display a dark brown patina showing scattered old pitting and the brass receiver shows scattered dings, some jagged edges and built-up areas around the tangs indicating a repair. The buttplate, hammer & trigger are dark with pitting. The action is in fair working order, the bore is poor, no visible markings, and the wood stocks are poor showing extensive damage at the wrist. Condition is near NRA Fair. ***Antique Firearm***
