We just had one of these in a 22 SHORT and it sold fast! So we picked ourselves up a .22 LONG. Put in an offer now before it goes, goes, goes!
Classic rifle with good wood and patina look. Carrying it makes you feel like you just stepped out of the Old West. A great little varmint hunter. This rifle is perfect for anyone's collection.
"The Winchester Model 1890 is a slide-action repeating rifle produced by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company in the late 19th and early 20th century...."
"In the late 1880s, the Winchester Repeating Arms Company asked John 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 and Matthew Browning. Under this patent, Winchester created the first repeating slide action .22 rifle ever successfully developed and manufactured."
"The Model 1890 would prove 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, after which the Model 1890 was replaced by the Winchester Model 62 rifle. A final cleanup of stock on hand was completed in 1941. For many years, the Model 1890 was considered to be the standard for use in shooting galleries, hence its nickname of "gallery gun."
