Is Winchester making any of their own guns anymore or is it all subcontracted out now ?

I believe the first Rifle with the Winchester name on it was a modified version of the repeating Henry rifle and it was named the Winchester Model 1866 which would make it 150 years old. The rifle fired the same 44 rimfire cartridge as the Henry, but it had a receiver mounted loading gate and a wooden front stock.

Good summary

New Haven Arms maker of the Henry was reorganized as the Winchester Repeating Arms Company... In 1866

And I'm crying. Searched desperately for a new 1894 to add to my collection and be a big brother to my 9422XTR, the only one I found was listed at P&D but by the time I made up my mind that the can of whup-ass my wife would open up on me would be worth it, it was gone.:(

I missed out on a nice 1873. Someone else bought it before I could find the courage.

I'd like a "real" Winchester, even though Winchester has long been just a name.

But that goes for so many of the old names today...

Someone local here appears to have trademarked the Ross Rifle Company of Canada, just to merchandise it, ffs...
