The Hotchkiss magazine musket was invented by Benjamin Hotchkiss, an American living in Paris, France. In 1877, Winchester bought the rights to manufacture and sell the arm in hopes of obtaining government contracts. This was the first bolt action, repeating musket produced by Winchester and it used a tubular magazine in the buttstock. Three styles of Hotchkiss were produced between 1879 and 1899. Nearly all were in the military "musket" style.
This example is a First Model factory prototype mussket. It has an experimental cutaway on the frame aperature. The bolt is locked by a swinging piece on the right hand side, to the rear of the bolt.
