W08A 1866 WINCHESTER MUSKET; 27 inch barrel chambered in 44 RF. Good looking musket with a pleasing butterscotch patina to the receiver. Barrel also is nice looking with an aged gray/brown patina. Wood looks good but there are a few flaws. The forearm has a crack from the end all the way down that has been repaired years ago. Also the buttstock has a chip missing out towards the plate towards the upper right. Buttplate is a bit ill fitting. A coat of something was added to the gun likely when they fixed the forearm. Still a good looking musket. An interesting stamping on the left side of the buttstock but can’t quite make it out. A decent old Winchester.
