A legendary lever gun rides again

It  is not uncommon for shooters writing in to Ask  The  Gun  Editor to ask about my favourite rifles. When it comes to lever  actions, my answer has long been the same: I have two favourites.  One is the Winchester Model 1892 in .25-20. The other is the  Winchester Model 1886 in .45-70, which is basically the rifle the  Model 92 was derived from, since it’s simply an abbreviated  version of the  1886.  A close runner-up is the Winchester Model  71 in .348 Winchester.

For  the  last 50 years,  the Italian  firm of Pedersoli  has  earned a great reputation for manufacturing replica cartridge  firearms, especially models specific from the 1700s to the 1890s  of the American firearms history. Pedersoli’s wide range of  Sharps rifles in particular have helped place it high in the  esteem of shooters and they have received widespread acclaim  for their authenticity and quality.

Now  the company has introduced its first Winchester  lever-  action, a faithful reproduction of the Winchester Model 1871.  Being made of modern steels, the strength, as well as the fit and  finish of the Pedersoli Model 1886/71 surpasses that of the  original.
