The Winchester brand has had no shortage of new surprises for its consumers—like the new Varmint X shotshell—but, as SHOT Show 2016 kicks into high gear, the company will also begin a year-long celebration. Oliver F. Winchester introduced his now legendary brand to the world in 1866—and so, in 2016, Winchester celebrates 150 years of success.
As we've mentioned a few times before, 2016 marks the 150th Anniversary for the cumulative Winchester brands. As you might expect, commemorative product releases are coming—some have already dropped, like the 150th Anniversary Model 73 we saw at SHOT Show 2016. Next up on the list is Winchester Ammo's recently announced custom-built, collectible cartridge-firearm boards. There will be five in all.
A legendary brand was launched in 1866, and 150 years later Winchester is celebrating its founding with a series of commemorative offerings. Among them is a once-in-a-lifetime series of 10, pre-production rifles, chambered in 44-40, of the "One of Five Hundred" Model 1866 "Yellow Boy."
As you might have heard, Winchester is celebrating its 150th Anniversary this year. As the year has rolled on, the company has rolled out a variety of commemorative products to mark the occasion. Now, though, Winchester is asking its loyal customers to share their own stories—and prizes are on the table.
Winchester Safes has announced the start of its American Summer promotion, which will offer consumers savings of up to $250 off any Winchester Safe model currently manufactured in the United States. The offer applies to purcahses made through dealer stores or online at WinchesterSafes.com.
The final Winchester 150th anniversary bullet board is now up for auction.
One of the handful of new rifle designs for 2018 comes from an unlikely source—Franchi. The Italian firearm maker is best known for designing affordable and reliable shotguns, and those same principles carry over to the company’s first bolt-action centerfire rifle—the Momentum.
