Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection
The Model 1900 single shot, bolt action rifle was based on a Browning patent design (U.S. 632,904) purchased by Winchester. This model was intended as a serviceable, low-priced arm handling .22 caliber rim fire cartridges. It was not successful because of light weight and cheap construction, and was superseded by the redesigned Model 1902 single shot rifle.
BBL: MFD BY THE WINCHESTER RPTG ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CT. U.S.A. PAT. AUG. 29. 1899. -MODEL 1900-. -22 SHORT AND LONG.
These remarks were typed 2/18/03 since those attached to the record are on thermal paper (fax paper) and the text is fading.
Sporting rifle, bolt action, single shot. One-piece stained and varnished stock with semi-pistol grip and steel buttplate. All metal is blued except for bolt. Round barrel has drift adjustable rear peep sight and blade front sight. Barrel and receiver are (one?) piece. Take-down screw on bottom of stock in front of trigger guard. This is a simple and inexpensive youth rifle which still reflects the quality of materials and workmanship of its time. It is based on a John Browning design with improvements by Thomas G. Bennett. The top of barrel marked "Manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. New Haven, Conn. U.S.A. Pat. Aug.29.1899 | Model 1900 22 short and long."
Just below this paragraph is the notation, "Insert 0357 here."
From a hand written note accompanying, "The stock of this rifle was made with a pistol grip in an effort to make the general design of the rifle more pleasing."
