Winchester Firearms XPR 30-06

Winchester Firearms

For the next 14 years, Winchester aggressively sought new markets, created new products and explored new opportunities for his lever-action rifles. With the opening of the American West to settlement, Winchester prospered, eventually becoming the iconic company it is today. Over time the history of Winchester evolved into two parallel histories: the history of Winchester firearms and the equally complex history of Winchester Ammunition.

We hope you enjoy studying this historical timeline of the Winchester brand and the company that made it all happen.
