WINCHESTER Model 1890 Second Model PUMP ACTION .22 Caliber Short C&R Rifle
Turn of the Century Rifle in .22 Short Rimfire
Here we present a Winchester Model 1890 2nd Model Slide Action Rifle chambered in .22 Short Rimfire, manufactured in 1902 in New Haven, Connecticut. In the late 1880s, the Winchester Repeating Arms Company asked John Moses Browning to design a replacement for the Model 1873 rifle, since the rim fire version of the Model 1873 had never achieved any great popularity. On June 26, 1888, a patent for the new design was issued to John & Matthew Browning. Under this patent, Winchester created the second repeating slide action .22 rifle ever successfully developed and manufactured, being narrowly edged out by the Colt Lightning small frame carbine. The Model 1890 proved to be the most successful repeating rim fire rifle for general all around shooting ever made by Winchester. Approximately 849,000 Model 1890 rifles were produced between 1890 and 1932. For many years, the Model 1890 was considered to be the standard for use in shooting galleries, hence its nickname of “gallery gun.”
