Description


The 1860 Henry and 1866 Winchester cut a bloody swath in the "old west" not due to the power of the cartridge, but based on their capacity, controllability and rate of fire.

In this video we discuss an idea - what if the US Army had embraced the idea of the high capacity and rate of fire that the lever guns could deliver instead of the singleshot Trapdoor rifle?
