Winchester 1887 rifle with CPRR markings

From: "Riversong F Arms"

We have a Winchester 1887 with CPRR markings in our reference collection on both the barrel and the tang. We had earlier thought it belonged to the Canadian Pacific Railway (we are in Canada) but it was pointed out to us recently that the second R likely points to Central Pacific Rail Road ownership.

Do you have any records of CPRR owned Winchester 1887's and any details on the configuration they were contracted in if so?
