RARE .303 BRITISH c1910 mfr. WINCHESTER Model 1895 Lever Action Rifle C&R
Pre-WORLD WAR I Era Box Magazine Lever Gun!
Here we present a C&R Winchester Model 1895 Lever Action Rifle in .303 British, manufactured in 1910 in New Haven, Connecticut. This is a seldom seen chambering for this rifle and very desirable. It is in fine condition and features a 28-inch barrel with a crescent butt plate.
The Model 1895 was the first Winchester rifle to feature a box magazine located underneath the action instead of the tubular magazine design, which had remained fundamentally unchanged from the Winchester 1866. This allowed the rifle to safely chamber military and hunting cartridges with pointed bullets. The M1895 was also the last of the lever-action rifles to be designed by John Moses Browning and featured a rear locking bolt as in his previous designs dating back to the Winchester 1886. The M1895 was the strongest lever-action rifle Winchester had produced, designed to handle the increased pressures generated by the more powerful smokeless powder cartridges entering common use at the time of its introduction.
The overall condition is fine. Original finish/patina. Strong, crisp action. Bright bore and sharp rifling. The walnut stock is in fine shape and remains solid with less than average wear. Sharp markings. A wonderfully preserved Winchester 1895 in a very capable and available cartridge!
