This untouched Indian Rifle was formerly in the James D. Gordon collection and pictured on pg. 363 of his great book "Winchester New Model of 1873 A Tribute" Vol. 2. I've had it in my personal collection for over 10 years. The rifle was mfg. in 1875 so it would qualify as a possible "Little Big Horn " Indian rifle. The serial number under the hide wrapped wrist is #12159. I've tied to take some good pictures of the both sides of the butt stock where tacks once decorated it. These are long gone and have a great worn patina to the holes. The action will cycle a cartridge but will not hold all the time on full cock. A rare chance to own a pre Custer Indian '73 Winchester.
â€‹Just added last three pictures are of this rifle pictured in the 1873 Winchester book.
