| History, John Browning | August 29, 2011

The Winchester Model 1900 was a bolt action .22 caliber rifle. The rifle was only capable of single shot use. To keep cost down Winchester made sure to keep it simple and even made some adjustments to John Browning’s original design. The production rifle was capable of firing both .22 Short and .22 Long. The Winchester Model 1900 Single Shot 22 Rifle design was granted US Patent 632094 on August 29th, 1899. John Moses Browning applied for this patent on February 17th, 1899.

John Browning Patent 619132 – Winchester

| History, John Browning | August 29, 2011

This design was for a .30 caliber rifle. Knowing the time period this was in and knowing that the design was sold to Winchester I assume you could guess the mechanics of the firearm. Like his other dealings with Winchester this design of John Browning’s was for a lever action rifle. Like the Winchester Model 1895 this used a box magazine. The design is more compact than the 1885, but the same movement away from the tube magazines, which was due to an increase in the size and power of the rounds to be used. Unfortunately, Winchester did not manufacture this design. Regardless, the design earned John Moses Browning US Patent 619132 on February 7th, 1899, almost one year after applying for it on February 21st, 1898.
