1866 Winchester King’s Improvement close Copy Chaparral Arms .45 Long Colt 1866 Color Casehardened Walnut NIB Transitional Style close to 1873 Model Navy Arms Competitor / Our #LGCDGA5478. Here is what the manufacturer calls a faithful replica of the famous open top, iron frame receiver patterned on Oliver Winchester’s key employee Nelson King, who hit upon the loading gate and wood forend development, an important step between the 1860 Henry Rifle and the form that traditional lever action rifles embody even today. Photos show a specimen from a small lot we got on a distributor closeout, a 20 inch Octagonal Barrel Carbine chambered in the venerable .45 Long Colt caliber. This well balanced carbine weighs in at only 7 pounds 4.5 ounces, and its center of gravity is the juncture between barrel and receiver, exactly where it’s supposed to be. Barrel is nicely blued with a hint of purplish hue, marking is Chaparral ~ Repeating Arms / Kign’s Improvement Patented March 29, 1866, October 16, 1860, in front of the traditional set-screw anchored dovetailed traditional buckhorn type rear sight, with the words Cal .45 Colt behind the sight elevator. On the bottom of the receiver beneath the Italicized serial number is Cat. 18166. Upper tang is marked Model 1866. The 10 shot magazine tube, like the barrel, screws, trigger, and lever locking key are blue steel; and the receiver, forend cap, lever, hammer, and buttplate are color casehardened steel. Shell carrier mechanism and ammunition storage plate on the buttplate are solid brass, and the carrier of course mates at the bottom of the receiver. Forend and buttstock are Italian walnut with occasional shelfwear creases like the photo specimen shows only one of, on the left side of its buttstock. These rifles have been displayed, but never loaded, fired, or transferred; they are in their original boxes with all their papers. We only have a handful of them.
