This Winchester Model 1895 lever action musket, U.S. Army pattern, was manufactured in 1898. Approximately 10000 of this pattern were ordered by the Secretary of War. The Ordnance Department objected to the arm, but 100 were issued for field trials in the Philippines. They were returned to the U.S. as unfit for military service. This was the last Winchester "musket" design built by Winchester Repeating Arms Company, and the only one to incorporate a box type magazine.
