That is the Winchester Single Shot, otherwise known as the Model

1885. There were so many different variations of this rifle that

each and every one encoutered really needs an individual, hands-on

appraisal. For instance, the rifle was chambered for no less than

seven different .22 rimfire cartridges, with over 100 total

chamberings known for this rifle. More special order features were

available with this model than any other Winchester. Barrel lengths

from 15" to over 30". There are high-wall, low-wall, thick-side,

thin-side, etc. Value could easily range into the thousands.
