Hello joedawolf,

Welcome to the forum.
The info that I have states that the last 1886 made in 1922 was serial number 159337. No further serial numbers were recorded until the 86 was discontinued in 1935 at number 159994,
Bert H. will be along and will be able to supply more complete information.

joedawolf,

Hello, and welcome to the boards here on GunBroker.

That Winchester 1886 you have appears to be a special order Sporting Rifle, but I am sure Bert H will give some correction, or addition to that. It is a Half Magazine, and a Takedown to boot. The sights do look correct, and other than toe split in the wrist of the stock, appears to be in fairly good condition. I will wait and let Bert do the rest...he is the man...for Winchesters that is.

Best

The Model 1886 was in regular production through 1928 versus 1922, with mostly parts clean-up rifles assembled after 1928 through 1935.

That stated, this particular rifle was manufactured sometime after early 1932, as it has a "Proof Steel" barrel. It is not a special order rifle, as all of the late production 1886 rifles were made in .33 W.C.F., and were Take Downs. Based on the condition, it has a retail value of about $1600.
