Winchester 1885 High Wall Traditional Hunter, Limited Series

John M. Browning told his father one day that he could make a better rifle than the ones he was repairing in the shop. His dad said, "I wish you would get at it." The result was the Model 1885, his first firearm invention, patented in 1885. The High Wall single shot model has been chambered in more calibers than any other model. Its falling block action is noted for its strength and incredible inherent accuracy. Now it is offered through Davidson's Supply in some very nostalgic calibers in very limited quantities, with features you'll appreciate.

    Details

    John M. Browning told his father one day that he could make a better rifle than the ones he was repairing in the shop. His dad said, "I wish you would get at it." The result was the Model 1885, his first firearm invention, patented in 1885. The High Wall single shot model has been chambered in more calibers than any other model. Its falling block action is noted for its strength and incredible inherent accuracy. Now it is offered through Davidson's Supply in some very nostalgic calibers in very limited quantities, with features you'll appreciate.

    The stock is a straight grip style with a Schnabel forearm, finished in a satin, oil-type and finely checkered at the grip and forearm. It has a nostalgic crescent butt with top strap. Swivel studs are included. The full octagon, semi-heavy barrel is 28" long and deeply blued. For sights, the Model 1885 features a precise, adjustable tangent/tang rear peep sight and a standard elevator-type rear sight on the barrel in a buckhorn style. The front sight is a blade type with a 1/16" gold bead.

    Select from four calibers that are rich in history in their own right and have proven themselves over the years in the Model 1885: The 38-55 Win., 45-90 Win., the 45-70 Government and the heavy-hitting 405 Winchester, the most powerful rimmed cartridge ever developed for the lever-action rifle.

    The Davidson's Model 1885 Winchester is a rifle that every collector should have. It is authentic from butt to muzzle, and comes with a Davidson's certificate of authenticity.
