Winchester 1895 Saddle Ring Carbine

Winchester are producing a limited run saddle carbine version of the famous Winchester 1895 lever action chambered in .30-40 Krag ( Caleb: They must have heard you loud and clear).

The Winchester 1895 was designed by JMB and made famous by Roosevelt when he used it, chambered in .405 Winchester, on his African safari.

The Saddle Ring Carbine has a 4+1 internal box magazine, 22″ barrel and weights 8 lbs 2 oz. The MSRP is $1639.99 and only 501 will be produced. This is not the first time a Saddle Ring Carbine has been manufactured by Winchester, although I am not sure how long ago the last run was.

    i've been wanting one of those Russian contract ones too, badly enough to taste it. there's just something about a box magazine lever gun that makes me go, "WHY doesn't one of the SASS-gun repro companies have that in their regular product lineup?"

    (and never mind that the cowpoke era was on its last legs in 1895. i can't be the only guy who wants one of these things, and the SASS gunmakers have the most experience with technology of at least roughly that era.)
