Gun Porn: Winchester Revolvers

And another one HERE

Winchester revolvers?  Yup.  Back in the day, Colt came out with the 1883 Burgess lever rifle, and in turn Winchester developed some revolver prototypes.  Word on the street is that Colt and Winchester decided on a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ and neither of them would venture into each other’s market.  Colt would not do lever guns, and Winchester would put the cabosh on their revolvers.

These revolvers are on display at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.

  4. It was my understanding that it was William Mason’s prototype revolver for Winchester that scared Colt officials. Mason was after all the father of the M1873 SAA, among other Colt revolvers.

    • You’re holding an original Winchester revolver trying to find the value?

      Whatever somebody would be willing to pay for it.

      Best bet would to probably contact the Cody Firearms Museum and start from there.
