Tonight on American Rifleman TV: 150 Years of Winchester, Part 2; IWI Jericho

posted on August 17, 2016
This week on American Rifleman Television, we continue our look at the rich history of Winchester rifles, shotguns and ammunition. This is a company that not only built lever-action rifles, but also pump-action shotguns, such as the Model 1897 and the Model 12, as well as the strongest American double gun, the Model 21. Too, Winchester answered the call to supply American troops with rifles—including the U.S. 1917, BAR and M1 Garand—during the 20th century’s greatest conflicts.

For this week’s “Rifleman Review,” Brian Sheetz heads to the range with the Israeli-made Jericho Model 941, a full-size 9 mm Luger service pistol. Just before World War I, the British adopted a new rifle and a new cartridge, but decided to stick with the .303 British cartridge. The result was the Pattern 1914 rifle made by Remington, Eddystone (also a Remington plant) and Winchester. It’s our “I Have This Old Gun” this week, and it became the basis for the “Doughboy’s rifle,” the U.S. Model of 1917 in .30-’06 Sprg.
