The product of a number of designs patented by Andrew Burgess between 1873 and 1882, the Colt®-Burgess Rifle was an enhancement of the Whitney-Burgess. Marketed by Colt, the product had a short run, though no fault of its own. Colt stopped making lever action guns in 1884 after producing only 3,810 rifles and 2,593 carbines, when Winchester, threatened by Colt’s encroachment into the lever action rifle business, made it known that it planned to go after Colt’s single-action revolver business. The Burgess® models feature a blued forged steel frame with blued parts, smooth walnut buttstock & forend, and octagonal barrel. The Burgess® is still a beloved model in many shooters' collections today with its classic lever action feel and unique action.
