What a difference Nelson King's patented loading gate makes. The Henry was cool, but the 1866 was the first of the Winchesters. Although they stopped making the 1866 more than a century ago, Winchester brought them back this year—but others have made them since the 1960s. In the video embedded above, American Rifleman's Mark Keefe discusses the Uberti Model 66, a recreation of the Yellow Boy that is chambered in .45 Colt. It's the latest addition to the NRA Gun of the Week series.
