1988.8.209 | 1878-1884 | L: 45.75 in, Barrel length: 29.5 in, H: 8 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | Between 1879 and 1884, the Winchester Repeating Arms Company imported English-made double barrel shotguns for sale at their New York City store. At that time Winchester did not manufacture any shotguns. The English shotguns, marked with the Winchester name, were purchased from W.C. McEntree and Co., Richard Rodman, C.G. Bonehill and W.C. Scott and Son. Six gradations of shotguns were available: Winchester match gun, Winchester club gun, and classes A, B, C, and D. This shotgun has laminated steel barrels and hammerless construction. The "match" grade shotgun was the highest quality imported. It was made in Birmingham, England. | lower tang/1305/side plates/WINCHESTER REPEATING/ARMS CO./MATCH GUN/top bbl/WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO., (MATCH GUN) NEW HAVEN CONN.

1988.8.527 | 1600-1650 | L: 51.5 in, width: 29.5 in, H: 6 in, Barrel length: 9 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | Windlass crossbows were in general use from 1325 to 1600 for military purposes, and were employed up to nearly 1700 for sporting activities. They were used by Spanish and English colonists in America for military use after they had been largely replaced by muskets in Europe. About 1000 pounds of pull were required to set the steel bow, which measures 29.25 inches from tip to tip. When windlass was removed when shooting the piece. The entire apparatus weighs 19.5 pounds. At point blank range it could shoot about 100 yards. At forty degree elevation the range was approximately 300 yards. | NONE | The crossbow was used as early as the 4th century AD for hunting and in warfare in Europe before 1000 AD. The crossbow was more powerful and its heavier arrow (bolt) had more penetrating power that the longbow. The other advantage the crossbow had over the longbow was the ability to train crossbow men quicker than longbow men. As crossbows became more and more powerful, a windlass and pulleys were needed to "cock" the piece. This weapon, with a steel bow, may have required as much as 1000 lb. of pull to draw the bowstring back. (from The Complete Encyclopedia of Arms and Weapons) This cross bow fires a bolt about 15 inches long that weights about 3 ounces. | 1988.8.527v1.jpg | 1988.8.527v3.jpg | 1988.8.527v5.jpg | 1988.8.527v2.jpg | 1988.8.527v4.jpg | British | crossbow | Other | windlass | trigger | bone | steel | walnut | plain | Unknown | England
