As part of its ongoing celebration of its 150th anniversary in 2016, Winchester is offering a series of 10, pre-production riles, chambered in 44-40, from the “One of Five Hundred” Model 1866 “Yellow Boy” commemorative rifle collection. 



Considered one of Winchester's most collectible rifles, each firearm includes custom embellishments and identification through Baron Engraving. Each rifle will also come with a special box of commemorative ammunition and the 150th anniversary collectible medallion.  








The rifles have been allocated to various industry and conservation organizations to help raise funds in support of the shooting sports and hunting heritage. More details on this commemorative lineup of rifles will be available throughout the year on Winchester.com and communicated through Winchester Ammunition social channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

“This is a very unique series of collectible firearms and ammunition that represents the Winchester brand and our 150 years of legendary excellence,” said Brett Flaugher, vice president of marketing, sales and strategy. “We are very proud to help raise awareness and dollars through our 150th celebration in 2016 that will benefit the hunting and shooting sports industry.”
