The Winchester Model 1895 was a lever-action repeating firearm developed and manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company in the late 19th century, chambered for a number of full-size military and hunting cartridges such as 7.62x54R, .303 British, and .30-06 Springfield.
Unlike most Winchester repeating rifles, which fed from a tube magazine under the barrel, the Model 1895 featured a 5-round box magazine located underneath the action. This allowed it to chamber military and hunting cartridges with spitzer (pointed) projectiles. The Model 1895 also had a stronger action than traditional lever-action rifles (such as the Winchester Model 94), which meant it could handle the increased pressures generated by the higher calibre cartridges used by the military and for hunting.
Large numbers (approximately 300,000) were manufactured for Imperial Russia between 1915 and 1917; these were unusual for a lever-action rifle in that they also had a charger guide, allowing the M1895 rifle to be reloaded by the same charger clips used in the Mosin-Nagant rifle. The US and British militaries also adopted the rifle in limited numbers, and it was produced in a variety of commercial hunting calibres for civilian sale as well. Military versions of the rifle had full wood stocks and would mount a bayonet, while commercial rifles were available with a variety of stock and barrel lengths depending on the purchaser's preferences.

G762, you have a superb collection of military and sporting rifles. How long have you been collecting? 30 years. I haven't seen so many nice ones outside of a museum.

Beautiful. How much you want for it? Since I got a freebie yesterday it only makes sense to spend that money and then some on another piece.Respectfully.---OS
