Uberti 1866 Yellowboy Rifle .38 Special
Forged steel octagonal barrel, length 24 1/4"".
Brass frame and butt plate. Walnut stock and forend.
The 1866 Yellowboy was a marked improvement over the old Henry. Winchester’s plant superintendent Nelson King devised a convenient loading gate that passed cartridges through the side of the receiver. This not only made the new rifle more functional but also allowed for the installation of a wooden fore-end. The handy carbine version of the 1866 Yellowboy was the first true cowboy lever-action rifle and was the first rifle widely carried in a cowboy-style saddle scabbard.
The new 1866 Yellowboy was a hit worldwide. Chief Sitting Bull had an 1866 Benito Juarez’s forces used Yellowboys in Mexico and the Turkish army used the new Winchester against the Russians.
