  • Firearms trivia question Monday April 20

    In 1919 Winchester rifle designer T.C. Johnson developed a 6.8mm projectiled cartridge designed around the 30-06 case. It was introduced in a limited run hand made rifle known as the "Winchester Imperial Sporting Rifle".
    The Imperial was also known as the Model 51 Winchester.

    Full scale production of a mass produced model was not begun until around 1925, due to a little trickery on the part of their competitor Remington.

    What famous cartridge was born from this Winchester project and what were the next two model numbers (evolutionary steps) for this famous rifle design?

        YES INDEED!


        The 270 Winchester.

        The Model 54 came out in the mid 1925 and was basically a mass production Model 51.

        The Model 70 was introduced around 1936 if I remember correctly and was an improved model 54.

        Nothing gets by you guys.... I gotta think up another one for tommorrow...
