1886 Ridge Runner Rifle Matte Black
Product Review (submitted on March 22, 2016):
I own several 45-70's and love them all dearly, but my all time favorite is my Winchester 1886 short rifle. I had been looking to get a shorter 45-70 to use as a brush gun, and that would be a little more resistant to the elements. Instead of a marlin I went with the 1886 ridge runner, due to the convenience of the take down option, and because it also uses the famed 1886 action. Over all this is a fantastic little 45-70, a lot of power in a small package. My only complaint, is i wish it had a full magazine tube.
