Presented for you today is a true one-of-a kind restoration that was delivered to a one-of-a-kind customer. Actor Tom Selleck made lots of memories with his Winchester 1886 chambered in .50 Express, but he decided to let it go to a new home. This is your opportunity to add this beautiful example to your collection.
Carrying serial number 36779, the antique lever action rifle is dated from 1889, and was restored and upgraded in 2000-2001 by Turnbull Restoration. Letters from Cody Firearms Records Office and Turnbull Restoration are both included.
Originally chambered in .40-82, the Winchester was converted to its big-bore configuration. The new 26” full octagon barrel and mag tube were rust blued, and feature sporting rear and Lyman #21 silver front sights. Engraving is expanded #9 pattern, with bison on left side and elk on right side. Customer initials “T.W.S.” are engraved on bottom of receiver in gold. The receiver, lever, hammer and forend cap were color case hardened. Small parts were charcoal blued.
Woodwork included new butt stock and forend in 3XXX walnut, pistol grip with early style ebony wedge per original configuration. Checkering is H style in 24LPI with mullered border.
