Centennial 1866

Recommended Posts

I was surfing the interweb earlier and saw a couple of Winchester Centennial (1966 vintage) 1866 rifles.  Anyone know if they're good or bad? Besides the age anything that's worth knowing?  

Thanks

It was a fancy Model 94, reminiscent of the brass framed Winchester 1866 "Yellow Boy".  All were in .30-30 caliber.  The receiver was 24 carat gold plated inside and out.

@McCandless thanks that was an interesting article.  I didn't realize it was a '94 model, silly me I thought since it was the 100th anniversery it should have been an 1866 model.  Too bad for me, I've been looking for good deal on a '66 in .36 spl and thought that I found it.
