    ~ A very fine example of a .44 calibre rimfire Winchester M1866 2nd Pattern repeating rifle ~


    The barrel retains the majority (95%) of its original blued finish, now oxidised to brown. The woodwork is of fine grained walnut.

    The wording on the 26 inch barrel

    "WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS NEW HAVEN CT
    KING'S-IMPROVED-PATENT-MARCH 29. 1866. OCTOBER. 16. 1860."

    is clearly stamped.

    The serial number of 31200 dates it to 1870 and also shows that it was issued to the French government and used in the Franco-Prussian war. A battalion of 400 Garibaldians devastated the 61st Prussian Regiment and captured their standard in 1870 at Dijon, they had only been issued with Winchesters a few days beofre. See the book 'The First Winchester', pages 85-87.

    ~ Condition ~

    The bore is almost unworn and the action works perfectly.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £22 or the rifle can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

    The original Winchester rifle - the Winchester Model 1866 - was famous for its rugged construction and lever-action mechanism that allowed the rifleman to fire a number of shots before having to reload: hence the term, "repeating rifle." Nelson King's new improved patent remedied flaws in the Henry rifle by incorporating a loading gate on the side of the frame and integrating a round sealed magazine which was covered by a fore stock. Originally chambered in the rimfire .44 Henry, the Model 1866 was nicknamed the "Yellow Boy" because of its "brass" receiver (actually a bronze alloy called gunmetal).
