SN 163115. Cal. 44 RF, 20″ bbl, gun metal receiver, straight grained walnut stocks. Front sight mounted on bbl, rear ladder sight. Sling swivels in stock and on rear bbl band. Saddle ring on left side of receiver. Steel buttplate with cleaning rod in compartment. “4” is carved into stock behind lower tang. This is a Brazilian military carbine, although the serial number is somewhat outside the range published in books. It was found in Brazil. The arsenal-style repair to the upper tang (having to destroy another receiver) would also indicate probably military issue. CONDITION: Good. Bbl shows a gray-brown finish overall with some roughness at muzzle. Bbl address is clear. Rear ladder sight is good. Bore is dark with only traces of rifling. Rear bbl band is from another rifle. Gun metal receiver shows considerable cleaning with a replaced left sideplate. Rear upper tang has been repaired. Lever, hammer, loading gate, and trigger show gray-brown patina with some roughness. Stocks are good, but have been cleaned and are slightly undersized. Steel buttplate shows a gray-brown patina. Good representative example of a Winchester “Yellow Boy”. 49547-1 TEP C&R (3,000-5,000) – Lot 1001
