Made from 1879 to 1886, this levergun was produced in 2 frame sizes:
Small Frame - .32-30, .38-40, .44-40
Large Frame - .40-60, .45-60, .45-75, .50-90.
The rifle was an outgrowth of and an improvement upon the Burgess design. However it still was not as popular as the Marlin or Winchester leverguns.
