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 unmarked rifle was made by James Paris Lee, and it was obtained for Winchester by George d. Seymour to be used in the Russel vs. WRA lawsuit.
This unusual bolt action only had limited military and civilian acceptance--the .236 caliber was small, and somewhat ahead of its time. Not until the manufacture of the M-16 did the small (.223) caliber, high-velocity cartridge become popular.
Magazine capacity: 5 cartridges.
