Thank you Bert and all you other guys who helped me figure this rifle out. I got it listed and thanks to you fine folks I think it's correctly done. Ricci.

    Good luck.

    Keep up posted - updated in GD please.

    I for one am interested in seeing what it yields at auction.

    If it were me I would put new wood on it and shoot it (retaining the original wood) and try and find a reproduction rear sight to match the front (strobels would be a good guide)

    The 1886 action is overbuilt - like a Swiss artillery piece.

    Not certain how many .38-56 WCF guns were made (total or percentage)

    My 1886 is chambered in the much maligned and unpopular .33 WCF

    Thanks for sharing

    Mike

    I'll be interested in watching this one. I have a 45-70 in very similar condition.
