Model 1886 Repeating Rifle

Developed for handling the powerful centerfire cartridges of its time, particularly the 45-70 caliber used by the US government.

Widely used for hunting, the Model 1886 was introduced in October '86. The rifle was first listed with case hardened hardware, and changed to standard blued finish in August 1901. PGW offers stocks and forearms in all variations of this famous model.

Winchester 1886 Rifle Forearm

Model 1886 rifles were furnished with either round or octagonal barrels. Please select the proper barrel type and model, whether Early or Late. Early model rifles (before serial number 92,000) featured heavier round barrels than those of the later models.

Standard octagonal barrels were the same weight for both early and late models. Our octagon barrel forearms are for standard weight barrels. Winchester produced some Model 1886 rifles with extra heavy barrels measuring approximately .975" at the receiver and .915" at the forearm cap. We do not manufacture forearms for this heavier barrel.
