Winchester Model Rifle

By JAMES M. TRIGGS

The Winchester Model 88 hammer-less lever-action rifle was introduced in 1955. In design, it represented a radical departure from that of previous Winchester lever-action rifles.

The high pressure levels of modern sporting cartridges dictated a secure breeching system which was provided in the Model 88 by a rotating bolt with triple locking lugs engaging the receiver close to the cartridge head. Other significant design features are its enclosed receiver, detachable box-magazine, one-piece stock, and side ejection port which permits mounting of scope sights directly over the bore.

The Model 88 is chambered for the .243, .308, and .358 Winchester.
