1866 SASS Rifles

1866 SASS Rifles
SASS 1866 SHORT RIFLE

The Model 1866 was the first rifle to bear the now famous Winchester name.  Commonly known as the "Yellowboy" because of its distinctive brass receiver.  The 1866 Yellowboy lever-action rifle was a marked improvement over the Henry. It was the first true cowboy lever-action rifle, and the first rifle widely carried in a cowboy-style saddle scabbard. The Yellowboy had a convenient new type of loading gate, devised by Winchester plant superintendent Nelson King. 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 forend.  The SASS badge is engraved on both side plates.  With each purchase of this rifle, $10.00 is donated to the SASS Museum.  A SASS discount will be given at the time the confirmation call is made.  In the comments section please let us know your SASS # and Alias.  An Action Job is available at an additional cost.
