The lever action works just like the original. Hanging on your wall or over the fireplace, folks will think it’s the real thing. This unique replica gun has an antique gray finish and wooden stock and foregrip.
The original Winchester rifle- the Winchester Model 1866- was famous for its rugged construction and lever-action mechanism that allowed the rifleman to fire a number of shots before having to reload: hence the term, “repeating rifle.”
Nelson King’s new improved patent remedied flaws in the Henry rifle by incorporating a loading gate on the side of the frame and integrating a round sealed magazine which was covered by a fore stock.
Originally chambered in the rimfire .44 Henry, the Model 1866 was nicknamed the “Yellow Boy” because of its “brass” receiver (actually a bronze alloy called gunmetal).
