NEW 1866 Winchester.....$3200!

Recommended Posts

I just read in the trade magazine "SHOT" that Winchester will be offering an 1866 reproduction, fully engraved in 44-40 for $3200 in 20126

$3200 seems large to me for a repro...........

"Fully engraved" is probably where the money is.

Probably Laser or photo engraved

Like this 92

but if it's actual hand cut engraving that is not near enough money.

Finally? I'll have to check.

 

When I was down in at Texas Jack's over the summer I was told they had not had a 44 Special '66 in quite some time and were not expecting any in.

If it is made BY Winchester in a factory in the USA, then it is not a reproduction.

 

If it is made FOR Winchester under licence by another company in some other country but are allowed to stamp "Winchester" on the gun, it is still a reproduction.

 

In my opinion.

Winchester ceased to exist several years ago. The name "Winchester" is licensed. None of the lever action Winchesters currently on the market are made in the USA. They are made in Japan. Even the venerable old Model 94 is now made in Japan. Which is fine since Miroku makes superb firearms.
