    Yes, I know all that. That wasn't the question.

    Could you show us a complete pic? I had original cases and that was all I used through it. Loaded it and shot it regularly. One day going through 40 rds on range, was likely the most .236 ammo that had been fired since the '30s...at one time.

    I hope these pictures are helpful, you can see where someone removed the original front sights and did a poor job of it.
    I'm working with a tablet that has so much glare on the screen I can't see what I'm photographing

    That appears to me to be an original sporter. Mine has been gone for some years now, we were discussing these a year or so back. The grip cap and grasping grooves suggest original sporter. The sights too, a Winchester semi Buckhorn type rear sight...Sheard type front... Very nice. Mine went through some hard times and I had to have a stock ,made for it. Had nothing but the back end to work with. The ammo was about $3 CDN each here some time back. I haven't bought any for a while. I had some boxes too but they were hard put and not worth anything. My brass went with the rifle as you can imagine.

    There are a few advanced collectors here that I hope will jump in for more definitive info.

    Go to this site to compare yours, I think it's good... Winchester Lee Straight Pull 236 USN for sale

    Thank you for the link and the information. I emailed Winchester they replied ,
    Your Winchester – Lee Navy Rifle #12544 was one of 2,911 manufactured in 1898. There is not a lot of collector interest in these rifles and Flayderman’s Guide to Antique American Firearms gives a value of Very Good = $950 to Excellent = $2,000.

    I hope that is of some help.

    Thank you for the background on the Ross, I knew nothing about the Ross rifle before taking on the task of cleaning and preparing the collection to be sold. It is certainly a stout weapon and the rear sights are impressive to say the least.
