When I went looking for my first Winchester, I found this Sporting Rifle mfg. in 1908, with a 26" nickel-steel octagon barrel. I would have preferred a carbine, but this was really nice. Not a collectable as someone tried to get a plum patina when they tried a cold bluing. It also had two holes in the very nice looking receiver. I found two screws similar to the originals and installed them. The two holes were for a side mount scope. Capacity is 9 + 1 rounds. It has a Crescent brass butt stock which was difficult to shoot frequently until I found out the weird way to hold this rifle. I dislike semi-buckhorn rear sights, so I put on a square notch rear sight. I stripped the stock, sanded, stained with a black stain, clear coated and soon to add a saddle ring on this monstrosity, Nothing practical of course. As far as the saddle ring is concerned, try tying a piece of leather around it to prevent it from rubbing against the receiver. Good shootin' to ya.
