The Model 1902 single shot rifle was of the same general design as the earlier Model 1900, but was improved in quality. Changes included pistol grip, trigger guard, steel buttplate, rear peep sight as standard, and a slightly heavier barrel. This design enjoyed great popularity in the export trade and was included in the Winchester Rifle Corps Range Kit No. 2. This Model was also used in making up target pistols by the company employees; examples may be seen in the Winchester experimental cases. Manufacture of the Model 1902 was discontinued in 1931; about 640,300 were produced. This is a simple and inexpensive youth rifle which still reflects the general quality of materials and workmanship of its time. It is based on a John Browning design, with improvements by Thomas G. Bennett. The primary difference between this Model 1902A and the Model 1902 is that it was chambered to take the .22 Long Rifle in addition to the .22 Short and Long.
