The Winchester Model 1886

The Winchester 1886 rifle was produced from 1886 to 1935. Those with serial numbers under 119,000 were made prior to 1899.

The rifle was made in a number of caliber, including 33 W.C.F., 45-70, 45-90 and 50-100. Its serial number is found on the lower tang with “Model 1886″ on the upper tang. The 1886 has a total of about ten chamberings and a tubular magazine below its barrel. The lever action of this rifle is dramatically different from previous models and is the first repeating rifle design by John and Matthew Brown to be adopted by the Winchester company. In addition to the rifle, the 1886 was also produced as a carbine and musket with other variations including extra light weight rifles and take-down rifles.
