The Winchester Model 100 was a semi-automatic rifle manufactured by Winchester Repeating Arms Company. It was first introduced in 1961, and was manufactured until 1973. A total of approximately 262,838 were manufactured. Variants of the weapon are capable of firing a .
Unfortunately, sales were never outstanding and when production costs for both the Model 100 and Model 88 soared, Winchester ceased production in 1973.
Accuracy was an issue with mine out past 150M. It was a good gun and great in the bush for short distances. I used it for coyote with 130gr SP, the semi function was good for that. I would not take a shot past 150M for any reason though, just was not there for confidence.
The Model 1866 Winchester carbine is an improvement over the Henry Rifle, and depending on each model`s release year and its condition, they can sell for anywhere between $10,000-$30,000.
There were only 132 One of One Thousand rifles produced in the Winchester 1873 Model, and a scant eight of the Model 1873 One of One Hundreds– only six of which are known today.
After its 1989 bankruptcy, the company was acquired by the Belgian arms maker, FN Herstal, which also owns Browning. The privately owned company continues to manufacture under the Winchester Repeating Arms brand. The following materials link to fuller bibliographic information in the Library of Congress Online Catalog.
The Winchester Model 1894 rifle (also known as the Winchester 94 or Model 94) is a lever-action repeating rifle that became one of the most famous and popular hunting rifles of all time.
However, one property stands out: the Betts House, a 21,000-sqaure-foot mansion built in 1868 and acquired by Yale in 1972. Although the house itself is not known to be haunted, it has connections to Sarah Winchester, who is the inspiration for one of America`s most compelling ghost stories.
The . 50-110 WCF (also known as the . 50-100-450 WCF , with different loadings) in modern 1886 Winchesters with modern steel barrels is the most powerful lever-action cartridge, with up to 4,000 foot-pounds (5,400 J) of energy.
The current ammunition shortage has made specific ammo harder to find than others. Some of the hardest to find and most expensive bullets include: 30-30 Winchester: Popular among hunters, this caliber is in high demand and difficult to track down.
His pride and joy was the revolutionary Winchester repeating rifle, one of the first guns to fire rounds repeatedly, taking away the cumbersome need to stop and reload. The Winchester became an icon of the American frontier – used by cowboys, Native Americans, outlaws, sheriffs and even President Theodore Roosevelt.
Winchester Rifle Values

On the other hand, special configurations that were available at the time that the rifle was manufactured usually increase their value. That being said, most of these rifles sell for anywhere between the low thousands to the hundreds of thousands of dollars mark.

308 Winchester was introduced in 1952, two years prior to the NATO adoption of the 7.62×51mm NATO T65. Winchester branded the cartridge and introduced it to the commercial hunting market as the . 308 Winchester.
The . 30-30 is by far the most common cartridge shot from lever action rifles.
They are then manufactured in our partner factory in Istanbul, Turkey. Istanbul is a key manufacturing and trade center for Europe. Some SXP parts may be sourced from our other Winchester group factories in Western Europe.
With a reputation steeped in tradition, we have earned the moniker, `The American Legend` by delivering on our commitment to excellence in everything we do. Winchester`s manufacturing operations include a state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Oxford, Miss.
The reintroduction of the Model 94 Winchester, produced at the Miroku factory in Japan.
The Marlin tends to be slightly muzzle-heavy, and hangs on a target much better for me than the Winchester. Both rifles carry well in the hand, with perhaps a slight edge to the trimmer Winchester.
A Lever Action . 30-30 Winchester Is Still One of the Best Deer Hunting Rifles (and Here`s Why) Over its more than 125-year lifetime, the lever-action . 30-30 rifle has arguably killed more whitetail deer than any other single cartridge.
The new technology included a spring-closed loading port on the right-hand side of the frame, directly at the rear of the magazine tube, and resulted in the first reliable lever-action repeating rifle, produced as the first Winchester, Model 1866.
Two of the most popular answers for what is the best bolt-action rifle would be the Winchester Model 70 and the Weatherby Mark V. Winchester Model 70s made before 1964 and the current production guns are the best out there for that make and model. They`re not called “The Rifleman`s Rifle” for no reason.
300 Win Mag can shoot heavier bullets at a much higher velocity than the . 308 (~400fps faster with the same weight bullet). So, the . 300 Win Mag is much more powerful, has a much flatter trajectory, and has significantly more recoil than the .
The Henry`s lever had a much smoother throw than the Winchester. This promised good things right from the start. In fact, the Winchester`s action felt decidedly stiff at first. However, it slicked up pretty well after about a hundred rounds, and was almost as slick as the Henry by the end of our tests.
Winchester is truly an American brand and a recognized pioneer in the fields of firearms and ammunition for over 150 years. Alongside its fantastic firearms, Winchester offers high-value, innovative ammo for hunters and shooters which have earned the brand the moniker “The American Legend”.

The following is Wisner’s rendition & info on the subject.
The difference in the old firing pin and the new one is as follows. The old replaced
style, was totally lathe tuned (round). While the new recall style is similar in lathe
turning on the front and back, but in the front midsection it has two flats milled, one
on each side. This makes the center section stronger. Also replaced is the bolt sleeve
lock pin (firing pin guide) which was made to accommodate this different shaped firing
pin
Part number for the new parts are, firing pin =1391ND, bolt sleeve locking pin =1491ND
The word was at the time this recall was in process was that if the firing pin would
break at the mid section and still remain in the gun as two pieces, the possibility of a
premature discharge before the bolt was locked was possible. This apparently was caused
by the firing pin tip (now not having a retracting spring) to be stuck forward, and
thereby slam-firing upon chambering.
The responsibility for the recall apparently was on Olin, as they were the parent company
at time of manufacture. Olin set up regional recall centers at three established US
gunshops. There was a manufacturing delay in the replacement firing pins, and a backlog
occurred, also some collectors did not like the idea of shipping their guns long
distances. Olin then also authorized other gunshops to make the required alterations.
Upon completion of the recall, the shops were to test fire the firearm and to stamp an
assigned letter on the inside top of the receiver as seen thru the magazine well with the
bolt retracted. The letter “B” represented Bolsa Gunsmithing, “L” was Lefever, and “N”
was for Nu-line Guns. The letter “X” apparently was for all the other independent shops.
However this identification information did not get communicated to some of the smaller
shops at the start of the project. The only way to tell if the gun as been modified, if
the ”letter” is not present, is to take the barrel & action out of the stock, remove the
trigger guard assembly and the try to rotate the firing pin by twisting it. If it does
NOT rotate, then the firing pin recall HAS been performed.
