1988.8.278 | ca. 1885 | L: 46 in, Barrel length: 27.125 in, H: 8.25 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Model 1886 lever action repeating rifle was developed to handle powerful center fire cartridges. Based on a Browning patent (U.S. 306,577), with improvements by Winchester master designer William Mason, the Model 1886 incorporated strong vertical bolt locks and a very smooth action. Magazine capacity varied depending on magazine length and cartridge caliber (cartridges ranged from .33 W.C.F. to .50/110 Express). Receivers were casehardened until 1901, when blued finish became standard. This experimental sporting rifle was one of John Browning's first attempts with a lever action repeating design which led to the development of the Model 1886. The action on this sample must be open to release the loading gate on the right side to load cartridges into the magazine. | bottom receiver/76__/bbl/45 GOVT./ | Cataloged by BCD 4/91.

1988.8.130 | ca. 1910 | L: 38.5 in, Barrel length: 19.25 in, H: 7.5 in | The Model 1910 self-loading rifle was yet another enlargement of the earlier Model 1905. It was chambered for the especially developed .401 Winchester Self-Loading Smokeless cartridge, using 200 or 250 grain bullets. The heavy weight and short range accuracy of the arm limited its sales. The Model 1910 was discontinued around 1935; about 20,786 were produced. | PL above trigger/3S/bottom clip/.401 CAL./end of stock/WINCHESTER/REPEATING/ARMS/CO./PL bbl/-NICKEL STEEL BARREL-/ESPECIALLY FOR SMOKELESS POWDER/PL rear sight/PAT.
