**RARE**EARLY**1873 American Wild West Era Winchester Model 1866 .44 Henry (Flat Rim Fire) Obsolete Calibre Lever Action Yellow Boy Rifle With Brass Action, Tube Magazine & Octagonal Barrel. Sn 18303 - 18303
The 1866 Yellow boy lever-action rifle was a marked improvement over the Henry rifle. The Yellow boy had a convenient new type of loading gate, devised by Winchester plant superintendent Nelson King (King’s Improvement). The gate passed cartridges through the side of the receiver. This improvement made the lever action more functional and allowed for the installation of a wooden fore-end integrating a round sealed magazine which was covered by the fore stock. The rifles chambered in the rimfire .44 Henry were nicknamed the "Yellow Boy" because of its brass action. This is a rare to find early, original example of the yellow boy rifle in .44 Henry Flat RF calibre. It has a 24” blued octagonal barrel and measures 40” overall. The barrel's bore is clean with crisp rifling. It’s all original wood work is excellent. It has the correct brass action, butt plate with trap, tube magazine and ‘King's Patent’ side gate. The top of the barrel has patent & manufacturer detail "WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS NEW HAVEN CT KING'S-IMPROVEMENT-PATENTED MARCH 29. 1866. OCTOBER. 16. 1860”. It is fitted with flip up rear sight, blade fore sight and is fitted with sling swivels. Its lever action and firing mechanisms work crisply. The rifle’s serial number is 118352 which dates its manufacture to 1873. The price for this rare obsolete calibre iconic Wild West era rifle includes UK delivery.
