The Model 1904 single shot rifle was yet another variation in the Model 1900-1902 series. It incorporated a longer, heavier barrel, larger stock and a lip on the forestock. The Model 1904 is simply a more robust, adult-sized version of the Model 1902. This arm was also highly popular in Australia, and was included in the Winchester Junior Rifle Corps Range Kit No. 2. Between 1904 and 1031, 302,859 of these popular and inexpensive rifles were made. The affordable, .22 single shot rifle was the most used rifle of its time for both target practice and small game hunting. It was the constant companion of rural America in the first half of this century.
