An 1886 that's light? The 1886 Winchester was designed by John Browning for Winchester to handle heavy calibers like the 46-70 and the 45-90. Something the 1872 and even the 1876 could not do. But the action of this version is not a "lite" version. You get all the calories of the original. But as has been done for nearly 130 years, this Model 1886 is available in a version that is a little trimmer, a bit lighter weight and a little faster handling. Back in the old days, nearly every rifle traveled on a horse which made weight a lot less important. This one can be carried in your hands. Carry one home this weekend.
Experience the power and performance of the legendary 45-70 Govt. cartridge in this magnificent Model 1886 Extra Light Grade I rifle from Winchester Repeating Arms. Another of John M. Browning’s great firearm designs, the Model 1886 features a deeply blued receiver, lever and barrel, along with a matching blued steel end cap and straight buttplate.
The half-length magazine helps keep the rifle trim and easy to carry, both afoot and on horseback. A rich satin finish accents the smooth walnut stock. A top-tang safety, adjustable buckhorn rear sight and blade front sight constitute the finishing touches on this legendary rifle. If you’ve always wanted to ride into the sunset with a great piece of Western history across your saddle, make sure you get your Model 1886 now, because its production will also be very limited.
