No other firearm brand can lay claim to the legendary reputation of Winchester Repeating Arms®. Through the genius of John M. Browning, many of these all-time favorites are forever a part of America’s history. When it came time to chase a band of outlaws out of town, blaze a trail across the Great Plains or face down a charging grizzly on a narrow trail in the High Rockies, the men whose legendary courage tamed the Wild West chose to arm themselves with a genuine Winchester rifle or carbine. It was the gun they carried with absolute confidence, knowing that their lives and livelihoods depended on it shooting straight and true every time they pulled the trigger.
These magnificent historic rifles are limited production models and each one is crafted to the most exacting standards. This level of quality takes time and talent, and with so many classic variations in detail — like case colored receivers, different barrel lengths, deluxe and commemorative models in both rifles and carbines — it means that Winchester Repeating Arms will not have every historic model in the product line every year.
