Mechanically, the gun we tested was perfect. (I say "we" because the 1885 was evaluated by the panel of rifle experts that conducts Outdoor Life's annual gun test, which will appear in the June/July issue.) Miroku, which produces many vintage Winchester models, knows how to make these older intricate actions work. All the rifle's moving parts--trigger, falling-block action, ejector--snap crisply through their range of motion without binding or excessive wiggle. The trigger on our rifle was especially nice, breaking at just over 3 pounds.
