    New 1886

    Accidentally bought this in September. Had throat reamed for HC bullets, getting ready to load it out.

    As far as accidents go, that's a nice one. Not familiar with those. What caliber?

    It's a .45-70. Brand new Japanese model. Craftsmanship is unbelievable.

    I have a few Miroku models, and agree they are fine. Congratulations!

    So I guess the Japanese Winchester's are better than the Italian Winchester's.
    I handled a Jap Winny 1866,very nice but I passed. There was a 1950 waffle top in 90% + condition.
    At about 800.00 cheaper. $325.00 for the Marlin! It was a 30-30.
    Very happy I stopped in the gun store that day!
