In 1872, with financial help from New York State, the Creed Farm on Long Island was purchased by the NRA for a rifle range. Named Creedmoor, it opened a year later and it was where the NRA’s first annual matches were held. Today the term Creedmoor is synonymous with precision long-range performance from classic single shot black-powder rifles. The magnificent Winchester 1885 High Wall Creedmoor LTD, exclusively from Davidson’s, is just such a rifle.
Long noted for its strength and incredible inherent accuracy, the 1885 High Wall Creedmoor LTD’s falling block action is brilliantly case colored. The satin finished checkered walnut stock features a pistol grip, Schnabel forearm and a nostalgic case colored crescent buttplate. The half-octagon, half-round heavy target barrel is a full 34" in length and richly blued. This Model 1885 features a precise, adjustable ladder-type rear tang mounted peep sight and a target globe front sight with spirit level for long-range accuracy. Chambered in the legendary 45-90 Winchester black powder-only cartridge, the Creedmoor LTD is intended to deliver extended range, hard-hitting power and extraordinary accuracy. Tipping the scales at nearly 12 pounds and a full 50 inches in length, this is a true classic rifle from a bygone era and remains a force to be reckoned with.
The Winchester Model 1885 High Wall Creedmoor LTD is a rifle that will instantly become the centerpiece of your gun collection. Historically inspired from butt to muzzle, it comes with a Davidson's certificate of authenticity. Available in limited numbers only through Davidson's Supply, they are sure to be in high demand. Don’t delay, as a piece of firearms history like this waits for no man.
