    Old winchester lever guns

    I was cleaning up and reorganizing the safe this morning before work and decided to lay out all of my old winchesters. Most of these have been inherited but a few purchased and one was left to me in the will of an older gentleman I have fond memories of.

    Anyway, thought it was cool having em all laid out so I decided to share.

    1886 Turnbull 475
    71 348
    71 348
    1886 45-70
    1886 33
    1873 44-40
    1873 38-40
    64 30-30
    1894 38-55
    1892 32-20

    Most of them have spent their life as the tools they were built to be. The old 1886s and 71s have all hunted Alaska or Montana pretty heavily except for the Turnbull obviously. The 1873s and 92s are pretty worn from use. The 1894 and the 64 are both in great shape, especially the 1894 which was made in 1896. Anyway, just thought I would share.

    Very, very nice collection of working guns! My favorite type. I've got a thing for quality guns that have working history and some of yours being from Alaska hunts at one time.. I always keep an eye out for picking those up where I can and getting them back up here. Thanks for the pics.

    Most all old Winchesters suffered more from abuse than use.

    There's just something elegant to me in the lines of a Model 73 or a Model 94 with octagon barrel and full length magazine tube.

    I'm a collector of Winchester LA center fires, too. I have a full set except a Model 65. Someday though!

    I had a line on a 65 in 218 bee. However, in the end I just couldn't justify that cost for the condition. This one was much cheaper than I typically see them, but even in its condition they wanted 2k for it.

    I love my 71s and 64 though.

    Nothing fits a safe better than a lever gun. When a safe dealer tells you that the model you’re looking at will hold 50 long guns they usually fail to mention that they’re talking lever actions. Nice collection you have there.
