serial #832293, 22 WRF, 23" round barrel with a good bore showing a few spots of moderate oxidation and strong rifling throughout. This is a lovely very late-production Model 90 likely built with clean-up parts from the factory. The barrel of this rifle is mostly a pleasing dark gray-brown patina showing some scattered light scratches, freckling and traces of original blue in the more protected areas. The magazine tube, bolt and frame retain about 85% original bright blue showing some high edge and operational wear, a few spots of pinprick pitting at the high edges, light oxidation staining and areas flaking to a brown-gray patina scattered about. The barrel is appropriately roll-marked with the Winchester address, trademark and "-MODEL 90- / -22 W.R.F.-", the front of the frame is stamped "WRF 43" and both are marked along the top with Winchester "WP" in an oval proofs. The straight grip walnut buttstock and grooved forend remain in very good plus to near excellent condition showing some scattered dings, dents and scratches from the years. The rifle is sighted with its original sporting rear and German silver blade front sights. A very fine example overall, rare to find in both this state of condition and configuration.
