The Model 1910 self-loading rifle was yet another enlargement of the earlier Model 1905. It was chambered for the especially developed .401 Winchester Self-Loading Smokeless cartridge, using 200 or 250 grain bullets. The heavy weight and short range accuracy of the arm limited its sales. The Model 1910 was discontinued around 1935; about 20,786 were produced.
