The last one, I think?

Another Winchester high wall and probably the last, maybe??? made in 1886, chambered in 32-40. This gun is in really nice condition for being 132 years old. this will probably be my rifle deer season gun. The 40-70 worked, but is a bit much I think for deer. should have all the loading supplies here Monday.

That is super cool. Congrats on the gun and the gumption to take her out on the hunt.

BUT..........do you know how many times I've said the same thing "This is my last...I don't need another..."? Good luck with that!

My downfall is S&W revolvers, to each their own.

Nice find BP. I'll be interested to hear how it shoots.

Nice find! Interesting you posted this. Leather just put up a video of taking a doe in the big game forum with an old 32-40.
Best of luck with it!
