1988.8.314 | ca. 1902 | L: 33.25 in, Barrel length: 18 in, H: 7.5 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Model 1902 single shot rifle was of the same general design as the earlier Model 1900, but was improved in quality. Changes included pistol grip, trigger guard, steel buttplate, rear peep sight as standard, and a slightly heavier barrel. This design enjoyed great popularity in the export trade and was included in the Winchester Rifle Corps Range Kit No. 2. This Model was also used in making up target pistols by the company employees. Manufacture of the Model 1902 was discontinued in 1931; about 640,300 were produced. | BBL: MFD BY THE WINCHESTER RPTG ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CT. U.S.A. PAT. AUG. 29. 1899.

1988.8.321 | ca. 1904 | L: 36.5 in, Barrel length: 21 in, H: 7.5 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Model 1904 single shot rifle was yet another variation in the Model 1900-1902 series. It incorporated a longer, heavier barrel, larger stock and a lip on the forestock. The Model 1904 is simply a more robust, adult-sized version of the Model 1902. This arm was also highly popular in Australia, and was included in the Winchester Junior Rifle Corps Range Kit No. 2. Between 1904 and 1031, 302,859 of these popular and inexpensive rifles were made. The affordable, .22 single shot rifle was the most used rifle of its time for both target practice and small game hunting. It was the constant companion of rural America in the first half of this century. | BBL: MFD BY WINCHESTER RPTG ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CT. U.S.A. PAT. AUG. 29. 1899.

1988.8.188 | ca. 1912 | L: 38.5 in, Barrel length: 19.25 in, H: 8.25 in | The Model 1873 was a great improvement over the Model 1866. Improvements included the introduction of center fire cartridges, a mortise cover or dust cover over the ejection port, and a forged iron (later steel) receiver and buttplate. Major evolutionary changes of the Model 1873 are noted by variations in the configuration of the finger lever and the mortise cover. Most of these rifles were chambered in .44/40 W.C.F. In 1870, Colt's began chambering its single action revolver for the same cartridge, and the two arms became popular and famous in the winning of the West. This rifle has third type mortise cover and flat topped lever for engaging safety (c. 1879 and later). Magazine capacity: rifle- 15 cartridges; carbine- 12 cartridges; musket- 17 cartridges. | lower tang/686120B/bottom receiver/44 CAL./upper tang/MODEL 1873/-WINCHESTER-/TRADE MARK. REG. IN U.S. PAT.

1988.8.310 | ca. 1901 | L: 33.25 in, Barrel length: 20.5 in, H: 7 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Model 1900 single shot, bolt action rifle was based on a Browning patent design (U.S. 632,904) purchased by Winchester. This model was intended as a serviceable, low-priced arm handling .22 caliber rim fire cartridges. It was not successful because of light weight and cheap construction, and was superseded by the redesigned Model 1902 single shot rifle. | BBL: MFD BY THE WINCHESTER RPTG ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CT. U.S.A. PAT. AUG. 29. 1899. -MODEL 1900-. -22 SHORT AND LONG. | These remarks were typed 2/18/03 since those attached to the record are on thermal paper (fax paper) and the text is fading. Sporting rifle, bolt action, single shot. One-piece stained and varnished stock with semi-pistol grip and steel buttplate. All metal is blued except for bolt. Round barrel has drift adjustable rear peep sight and blade front sight. Barrel and receiver are (one?) piece. Take-down screw on bottom of stock in front of trigger guard. This is a simple and inexpensive youth rifle which still reflects the quality of materials and workmanship of its time. It is based on a John Browning design with improvements by Thomas G. Bennett. The top of barrel marked "Manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. New Haven, Conn. U.S.A. Pat. Aug.29.1899 | Model 1900 22 short and long." Just below this paragraph is the notation, "Insert 0357 here." From a hand written note accompanying, "The stock of this rifle was made with a pistol grip in an effort to make the general design of the rifle more pleasing." | Winchester Model 1900 | .22 | none | 1988.8.310v2.jpg | 1988.8.310v1.jpg | firearm | sights | round | plain | sporting | experimental peep rear. | stock | blade front | takedown. | experimental pistol grip | barrel | trigger | gum wood | rifle | Winchester Repeating Arms Co., New Haven, CT | American
