The Model 1883 was a bolt action firearm designed for military use and was chambered for the 45-70 cartridge, the official cartridge of the U.S. Army at that time. It was an excellent weapon for military use and a reasonable quantity sold for this purpose. However, it had a very limited sale as a sporting arm. Shooters generally preferred the older, lever action type of mechanism with which they were familiar. This rifle was submitted to the War Department in 1882. The changes in this rifle were suggested by M. Clough, who was at that time superintendent of the W.R.A. Co.
