In the Historical guns section, the Model 1885 High Wall comes is offered in all three WSM calibers, and the Low Wall model is offered in 17 Mach 2 caliber.
Too confusing with the number 1, and 0 ) Sometime in 2011 the serial number prefix became MR. One more question as long as I am on here, would this gun have originally come with one of those flip up peep sites on it. Your rifle is known as a sporting rifle configuration of the Model 1894. I'm thinking it is worth a couple of dollars but not sure.Known as the "King of the .22's," the Model 52 has been called by Field & Stream one of "the 50 best guns ever made" and by Winchester historian Herbert Houze "perfection in design." However, by the 1970s the World War I-era design was showing its age and had given way in top-level competition to newer match rifles from Walther and Anschütz; the costly-to-produce Model 52, which had long been a loss leader prestige product by that time, was finally discontinued when US Repeating Arms took over the manufacture of Winchester rifles from Olin Corporation in 1980.During World War I Winchester's management determined that production of the Model 1885 Single Shot would not be resumed in centerfire chamberings after the war, nor in .22 rimfire (the "Winder musket") after existing Army training rifle contracts were fulfilled or cancelled.My question is why is there so much variance from site to site on this model gun. According to most sites that serial number puts it at manufacturing in 1898. It is capied information that was generated in the late 50's and early 60's that has been proven to be wrong. In order to assess the condition and determine the value of the rifle I will need to see some good photos. It would be nice to have a piece of paper with it to give the manufacturing info. Long barrel and weight of it make it rest so comfortable when shooting it. Barrel lengths could also be special ordered anywhere from 36 down to 12 inches.
