H. K. Uriah, SASS #74619 Posted October 7, 2022 Share Posted October 7, 2022 I have at long last fulfilled a childhood dream of having a complete collection of the entire classic Winchester line. (Pre-1900 designs) Originals where I could, replicas where I had to. I am now the proud owner of... 1860 Henry, Uberti .44-40 1866, Uberti carbine .44-40 1866, Uberti rifle .45 Colt 1866, Uberti rifle .22 Long Rifle* 1873, Winchester .32-20 1876, Uberti .45-60 1886, Winchester .45-70 1887, Winchester 12 Gauge 1887, Chiappa 12 Gauge, Terminator Model 1892, Winchester carbine .32-20 1892, Winchester short rifle .44 Magnum with large loop. (Obviously modified) 1892, Armi San Marco rifle .45 Colt 1892 Rossi carbine .44 Magnum (Pre-Safety model) 1892 Chiappa Mare's Leg .44 Magnum 1893 Winchester 12 Gauge 93/97 Norinco 12 Gauge 1894 Winchester .30-30 (Sears Ted Williams model) 1894 Winchester .32 Winchester Special 1895 Winchester .30-40 1897 Winchester 12 Gauge 1897 Winchester 12 Gauge 1897 Norinco 12 Gauge (Trench Gun Model) And that completes the collection. I suppose a Winchester 1901 and a Model 88 could be considered wild card additions, but I dunno. I also have 2 9422, one in .22 Magnum and one in .22 LR. * When I was in the market for this gun, I found it, and an Uberti replica 73 in .22. The prices were within $100 of each other, and I preferred the 73. I even considered getting both of them. Anyway, I got the '66 because the fellow selling the '73 put on a bunch of unreasonable conditions on the sale that I didn't want to deal with. The '73 replica seems to be a fairly accurate reproduction of the original Winchester .22's. The '66 is not all that different from the '73 replica. In fact, you might even say it's more like a .22 Henry/73 hybrid. So anyway, I have a complete Winchester collection. Something I always wanted. If I hadn't tried a Lightning a few years ago, they'd probably get a lot more use. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
