The Model 1886 lever action repeating rifle was developed to handle powerful center fire cartridges. Based on a Browning patent (U.S. 306,577), with improvements by Winchester master designer William Mason, the Model 1886 incorporated strong vertical bolt locks and a very smooth action. Magazine capacity varied depending on magazine length and cartridge caliber (cartridges ranged from .33 W.C.F. to .50/110 Express). Receivers were casehardened until 1901, when blued finish became standard. This sample Model D, designed by William Mason, led to the development of the Model 1886. It appears to have numerous parts of the Model 1876 incorporated, such as the hammer, buttplate, sights, forend cap magazine tube and mount, and a modified lever.
