Winchester Rifles for SHOT Show 2014

Single shot fans will be happy to see that Winchester is offering the low wall Model 1885 in 22 LR, 22 Win. Mag., 17 HMR, and 17 WSM.  The low wall action has been popular with single shot fans ever since Winchester put it into production over 100 years ago.  While these new models are slightly different from the original design, they still provide good quality guns with out the collectors price tag.

Other offerings for this year include the 1873 with a color cased action.  A 20″ barrel, and full length magazine tube  bring back the “Load on Sunday and shoot all week” era in a fun and historic way.  Chamberings are 44-40 and 45 LC.  Stocks are straight grip walnut.

1892 lever guns are in the mix as well.  Large loop levers make you think of John Wayne and True Grit.  These rifles have full length magazines along with 20 inch barrels.  Calibers are 357 Magnum, 44 magnum, 44-40, and 45 Long Colt.  All finished with high polish blueing.

Cowboy action shooters will be glad to see this line up.
