We donated one of our manufactured Winchester Model 1886 rifles to be auctioned off at the 2010 Safari Club International (SCI) Hunters Convention. The three-day event was held in Reno Nev. from January 21-23, 2010.

Complemented by a hand-checkered walnut stock, the Turnbull Model 1886 rifle features the Winchester No. 10-style engraving. Other features include a 22 inch rust-blued octagon barrel, bone-charcoal case-colored receiver and the special serial number “SCI 2010.” Delivered in a canvas and leather luggage case, the Turnbull rifle comes with forty rounds of ammunition.

The Turnbull Model 1886 rifle sold at the SCI auction for $ 6,500. This money, along with the proceeds from the sale of other auctioned firearms, will benefit SCI’s Auction Program, a major source of funding in the fight to conserve wildlife resources and habitat, and protect people’s freedom to hunt.
