HISTORY: Following the Civil War, the New Haven Arms Company--manufacturer of the legendary Henry repeating rifle invented by B. Tyler Henry--was renamed Winchester, and created the first Model 1866.
Developed from B. Tyler Henry's popular repeating rifle, the Model 1866 was famous for rugged construction and a lever-action breech mechanism that allowed a rifleman to fire several shots before having to reload. The first Model 1866 was nicknamed "Yellow Boy" because of its 'brass' receiver, which was actually made of a bronze alloy called "gunmetal".
Initially the 1866 was only able to accept .44 caliber rimfire cartridges, but the modern center fire cartridges were later added to the production line. The tubular magazine was located beneath the barrel.
