Winchester Firearms

Here's a thread for posting photos of your Lever Action rifles and carbines...


My lever action carbine is a Winchester Model 1894 chambered for the .30WCF cartridge. She was manufactured in 1977 and is a top eject model.

The Winchester Model 1894 was the first commercial repeating rifle built to be used with smokeless powder. The 1894 was originally chambered to fire 2 metallic black powder cartidges, the .32-40 Winchester and .38-55 Winchester. In 1895 Winchester went to a different steel composition for rifle manufacturing that could handle higher pressure rounds and offered the rifle in .25-35 Winchester and .30-30 Winchester. The .30-30 Winchester, or .30WCF (Winchester Centerfire), is the cartridge that has become synonymous with the Model 1894.

Rossi / Taurus

Here's a pic of my newest toy...a Rossi Ranch Hand.

It is a lever action repeating pistol holding 6 in the tubular mag...+1 in the chamber and will shoot both the .44 Magnum and .44 Special cartridge from it's 12" barrel. Overall length is 23 1/2" and it weighs in at 4 lbs. The metal is a matte blue and the furniture is made from Brazilian hard woods.

If this firearm looks familiar to some of you, it's because of the 60's TV series called Wanted: Dead or Alive starring a very young Steve McQueen as Josh Randall, a Civil War veteran who carried a sawed-off rifle as a holstered weapon and made a living as a bounty hunter in the Wild West of the 1870s.

The show ran from 1958 to 1961. McQueen faked a car accident to put the series into hiatus while he went on to film The Magnificent Seven.

Picked this little Henry Hoo1 (Bottom) up the other day and took it shooting. Pretty nice little lever action 22 for $300 +/-. It's very accurate straight out of the box. Action is butter smooth and it also chambered every brand and bullet type I fed it. Looks like it going to be fun to shoot for a long time to come.

Found one is picture of my Rossi Ranch Hand in 45 Colt...I hated the factory finish as it looked like brown shoe polish smeared on. This picture was taken after I refinished the stocks...

I sanded off the old "finish" and used Birchwood/Casey stock refinishing kit. It worked surprisingly well! The cheap wood they use produced some good grain once stained properly.
