Here is an opportunity to own a unique part of the Winchester legacy. A rifle like this comes along only every 100 years or so. It was the first model to incorporate a non-detachable box magazine. This is the rifle Teddy Roosevelt called his "Big Medicine." This is the rifle that became the preference of major powers worldwide, with Russia alone purchasing nearly 300,000 1895s just before World War I. It has a scalloped receiver, two-piece lever, Schnabel forearm and straight grip stock. The barrel and receiver have been polished to give it a glossy, deep black/blue appearance. The walnut stock and forearm have been precisely fit and finely checkered.
The Model 1895 was designed for the new generation of cartridges utilizing smokeless powder and pointed bullets. Many of its original chamberings remain popular today, including the timeless 30-06 Springfield and heavy 405 Win. calibers. With its quick handling characteristics, box magazine and pointed bullet capability, the Model 1895 changed the world of sporting rifles forever. Today's Winchester Model 1895 has every bit and more of the integrity, reliability and accuracy that legends are made of.
