Manufacturing details of the Jennings Lever Action|
by Scott Crawford - July 26, 2021
- The Jennings is essentially the "great-grandfather" of the Winchester Rifle. An improvement on the earlier Hunt Repeater, these arms were manufactured by Robbins & Lawrence of Windsor, Vermont.
- Available from: 1849 to 1852
- Notes: From 1849 through 1852 Jennings built and marketed a magazine-fed lever action rifle. The Jennings rifle was manufactured by the Robbins & Lawrence Co. in Windsor, VT. The shop foreman at Robbins & Lawrence was one B. Tyler Henry who figured prominently in lever action design and development.
Production of the Jennings ceased in 1852 and it is said that all the investors in the company suffered heavy losses. Money troubles were nothing new to the firearms industry.
