This rifle was traded to O.F. Winchester by R.S. Lawrence, formerly of the firm of Robbins and Lawrence and manufacturer of the Jennings rifle, as per letter of February 10, 1871, from Winchester to Lawrence. In this letter Winchester says, I should like to keep it in my collection... This is the earliest reference to a Winchester collection.

Second type Jennings magazine repeating rifle, 1851-1852 Smith improvement. Open style sporting sights. Barrel and magazine finished a beautiful plum brown color. Receiver and buttplate blued, some traces of original color remain. The hammer and ring trigger are casehardened. Rifle style walnut buttstock with plain German silver inlay on left side. Scroll engraving on receiver, hammer, heel of buttplate, and the breech and muzzle ends of barrel. Magazine for priming pills located on top of receiver. Opening in right side of receiver similar to preceding but made narrower. A .54 cal. loaded ball will not go through this opening, so it could not have been a loading port.
