For the centennial anniversary of the Buffale Bill Center of the West, in Cody, Wyo., Winchester released their Navy Arms Cetennial Model 1873 Presentation Model.
Henry Repeating Arms Co. is expanding its capacity to better serve its customers, but the biggest news coming from the company is the production of the Original Henry Rifle.
In 1864, more and more repeating rifles-Spencers and “sixteen shooter” Henrys-made their way into Union units. The South was being overwhelmed by superior numbers and firepower. If 1863 was the year of the rifle-musket in America’s bloody Civil War, then 1864 was the year of the repeater.
