1988.8.294 | L: 47.625 in, Barrel length: 27.25 in, H: 7.5 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | The Lee"Straight Pull" bolt action design was patented by James Paris Lee as a military arm. Winchester purchased production rights for the rifle and cartridge clip, and manufactured musket style arms for the U.S. Navy and limited numbers of sporting rifles. The military pattern was known as the U.S. Navy Rifle, Model 1895, caliber 6mm or .236 C.F. Many of these arms were use in the Spanish-American War. Very few Lee arms were made in sporting pattern. Factory records indicate that this Winchester musket incorporates a special extractor designed by William Mason. Location of this safety lever also appears to be a variation on the previous design.
