1988.8.131 | ca.1910 | overall length: 38.75 in, Barrel length: 19.5 in, H: 7.75 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. This cutaway Model 1910 is cut on the left side from the wrist through the forepiece to demonstrate the internal mechanisms. | bottom of clip/.401 CAL./upper tang/WINCHESTER/TRADE MARK/REG. U.S. PAT.

1988.8.652 | ca. 1965 | L: 39.25 in, Barrel length: 20 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Model 320 repeating, clip loading, bolt action 22 rim fire rifle was introduced by Winchester in 1971 simultaneously with the Model 310 single shot rifle. Essentially, the Model 320 rifle is a modified version of the Model 310 with a clip loading feature to make it a repeater. A companion 22 Magnum rim fire rifle, the Model 325, was announced, but never produced. The M/320 was last listed in 1974 (Barnes: 1980). The modified stock on this Model 320 indicates that it is a prototype, and not a final production piece. | magazine/WINCHESTER/22 S.L AND L.R./barrel and receiver/[Winchester proofmarks]/ | Cataloged by BCD 4/91.

1988.8.128 | unknown | overall length: 38 in, Barrel length: 19.375 in, H: 11 in, bayonet lengt: 16.25 in, bayonet width: 3.5 in | The Model 1907 self-loading rifle was a slightly enlarged and improved version of the Model 1905. The .351 Winchester self-loading cartridge was developed for this arm to provide higher velocity. The Model 1907 was popular with law enforcement groups and was offered in this configuration (with bayonet lug for US M1892 [Krag] bayonet, large capacity magazine, and sling swivels) only to police departments and penitentiaries. Winchester also sold limited numbers of the Model 1907 to the allies during World War I. | A: PL receiver/47357/bottom of clip/-.351 CAL.-/PR barrel/MADE IN U.S.A./PL barrel/MANUFACTURED BY THE WINCHESTER REPEATING ARM CO./NEW HAVEN, CONN.

1988.8.351 | 1949-1957 | L: 42.5 in, Barrel length: 24.375 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | Authorization for the development of a new bolt action repeating rifle with a detachable box magazine was given on May 31, 1944. This model was to be developed as a sort of a Junior Winchester Model 70, to handle the 218 Bee, 22 Hornet, 25-20 Winchester, and 32-20 Winchester cartridges. Factory records show the first delivery of M/43 rifles to warehouse stock on February 4, 1949. The Model 43 was the first postwar development in Winchester center fire rifles. It embodied the well-proven principles of the famous smooth, fast Winchester bolt action that adapted it to that highly popular sport known as pest and small game shooting. Discontinued in 1957, about 62,617 were made (Watrous: 1966). The right side of this Model 43 is completely cut away from the wrist to the rear sight, exposing the bolt and trigger mechanism and magazine arrangement. A sample cartridge is in the chamber. | [left barrel] Made in New Haven, Conn.
