Winchester 1885 single shot rifle

    The Winchester 1885 single shot rifle, designed by the one and only Mr John M. Browning, has been in and out of production for over 120 years. Winchester is once again manufacturing it. A variety of models are available:

    Picture 7-26
    1885 High Wall Sporter

    Picture 13-23
    Creedmoor Black Powder .50-90 Sharps

    Picture 11-25
    Short Hunter

    Picture 10-20
    High Wall Trapper

    Not pictured is the Traditional Hunter model.

    They are available chambered in:

    * 45-70
    * 50-90 Sharps
    * 38-55
    * 405 Win.
    * 30-40 Krag
    * 32-40
    * 45-90

    I really like the short barreled trapper model. It is available chambered in 38-55, 30-40 Krag and 45-70. Weights only 6 lbs and has a 16.5″ barrel.

    MSRP is $1514.99 to $2226.56 depending on model and caliber.
