This is the rifle that wound up playing a prominent role in the winning of the West. The Winchester 1866 was one of the most successful rifle designs to come about. Famously known as the “Yellowboy” because of its shiny brass frame, it was an improvement over the Henry Repeating Rifle, and was the first rifle widely carried in cowboy-style saddle scabbards.
This modern day reproduction by Cimarron is one of the finest available. It is a great choice for cowboy action shooting, mounted shooting competition or addition to any Old West aficionado’s collection.
Arguably the most famous rifle of the Old West, Winchester's first centerfire arm was manufactured from 1873-1919, with more than 541,000 turned out before 1900. A frontier favorite since its debut, this lever-action rifle was produced in a number of variations from short Trapper models and carbines to short and extra-long barreled rifles. A few short years after the 1873 rifle was introduced it was often teamed with the famed 1873 Peacemaker and other sixguns that had been chambered for the '73's .44-40 (.44WCF), .38-40 (.38 WCF), and .32-20 (.32 WCF) ammunition.
Originally known as the "Improved Henry" due to its patented loading gate on the side of the frame, designed by Nelson King, Winchester's plant superintendent, and the addition of a wood forearm, the 1866 model was known as the "Yellow Boy" by the Native Americans, because of its brass frame. The '66 model was the first true cowboy lever-action and the first that adapted well to carrying in a saddle scabbard, due to its slab sided design. With over 170,000 made between 1866-1898--it's popularity continued long after more powerful lever guns were introduced.

“The 1885 High Wall is no doubt stronger than the Sharps rifle, better designed, made of better materials and is of better appearance than that famous arm... All these rifles proved very accurate and reliable in every way.”

Cimarron Firearms, the leader in authentic replicas from America’s Old West, proudly reintroduces one of America’s most popular and famous lever-action hunting rifles of all time. The John Browning patented design was introduced in 1894 in two iconic cartridge chamberings, the .32-40 and the .38-55. It was the first American-made repeating rifle to chamber smokeless powder rounds. This was in 1895 when nickel steel barrels and the 30 WCF or .30-30 were introduced. The Model 1894 has been referred to as the "ultimate lever-action design" by firearms historians.
