Glisenti 1886

The Winchester Model 71 lever-action rifle was first announced in January 1936. Of solid-frame construction, the Model 71 was essentially a revamped version of the famous Browning-designed Model 1886 rifle.

The rimmed .348 Winchester cartridge, designed especially for the Model 71, was offered in 150-, 200-, and 250-gr. loadings to give a range of power adequate for virtually all American big game: No other commercial rifle was chambered for this cartridge.

The Model 71 was initially furnished with both 20" and 24" barrels, but the 20"-barrel model was discontinued in 1947. The deluxe model was stocked in selected walnut and both pistol grip and fore-end were checkered. The pistol grip was capped with hard rubber. Quick-detachable swivels with 1" leather sling were standard.

The lower-priced standard model had a plain stock, with no swivels or sling. Deluxe and standard models were available with aperture or open rear sights.

The Model 71 was discontinued in 1958.
