1988.8.279 | ca. 1885 | L: 45.75 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 sample designs which led to the development of the Model 1886. The rifle has a two-piece bolt with a rising locking lug. | bbl top/45 GOVT/receiver top/BROWNING BROS, OGDEN, UT/rear sight/1876/ | Cataloged by BCD 4/91.
