The Model 1886 Short Rifle features a deeply-blued receiver, barrel and lever, along with a matching blued steel end cap and steel crescent buttplate. The classic straight grip Grade I walnut stock allows quick shouldering, and has an elegant satin finish. The full-length tubular steel magazine holds six 45-70 Govt. cartridges. The receiver is drilled and tapped for the addition of an optional receiver sight. A top-tang safety, adjustable rear buckhorn style sight and a gold bead Marble Arms® front sight complete the graceful profile of this historic model. Like the other historical rifle models, production is limited.
With the introduction of the Winchester Model 1886 the world of lever actions was changed forever. No previous lever action ever was as strong, handled as well, or ever offered chamberings in such powerful cartridges. A new standard was set. Today's Model 1886 rifles come in versions and configurations that you will love.
