    One of a Kind Winchester Model 1876 "One of One Thousand" .45-60
    WINCHESTER MODEL 1876 1 OF 1000 LEVER ACTION RIFLE. Cal 45-60. SN 10036. This ultra rare rifle is one of only 5 ( and this being the only one currently known to survive) "1 of 1000" ever made with 30" bbls. The bbl is full oct. with full magazine and fine, center crotch cut, beautifully figured walnut with checkered forearm and straight stock that has a crescent steel buttplate with trap. The front sight is a Lyman hunting sight ivory bead and the rear sight is a very early Winchester folding leaf original sight. The tang is mounted with a Lyman tang sight. It has the second model screwed on dust cover rail with an impressed thumbprint dust cover. The chamber area of the exposed bbl flats is engraved in foliate arabesque patterns with punch dot background and the engraved script legend "One of One Thousand". The muzzle is matching engraved on five flats with identical patterns and a single silver band to match the silver band over the chamber. The caliber marking is rolled on the top flat above the rear sight and below the bbl markings. This special rifle is further equipped with single set trigger. It is accompanied by a Cody Firearms Museum letter dated Jan. 22, 2004 completely identifying this rifle as having been shipped on June 8, 1880 to order number 20253. This very rare Winchester was recently purchased out of the family which had owned it since 1905. CONDITION: Fine. Bbl retains about 80% original blue, thinned and turning brown over the chamber area and in front of the rear sight. Magazine tube retains 40-50% original blue with the balance turned brown. Forend cap is a smooth brown patina. Receiver and sideplates retain 75-80% silvered case colors with the balance a smooth brown patina. Wood is sound and shows substantial wear and handling with no original finish remaining and with minor handling and use marks commensurate with the overall condition of the rifle. Mechanics are fine and the bore is bright and shiny.


    Price: Price: $165000.00

    I'd probably shoot one deer with it and then put it in a huge fucking safe.
