Winchester Model 1887 Shotguns works with a Browning designed Lever Action
Fairfax, Virginia - Winter's arid chill has been replaced with the promise of warmth and honeysuckle as springtime returns to the National Firearms Museum. The coats are lighter, the sun is brighter, and the days are longer than those from long months past. Springtime brings but one thing to mind for Senior Curator Philip Schreier; shotguns.
"It's time to dust off our shotguns, our plus fours and tweeds and head to the skeet/trap fields to enjoy the rites of spring passage."
Today, for Curator's Corner, Schreier is dusting off a relatively rare Winchester Model 1887 Lever Action Shotgun. Yes, a lever action shotgun. Bet this is a first for most of you out there ... I know it was for me.
