The 1866 Yellowboy lever-action rifle was a marked improvement over the Henry rifle. The Yellowboy had a convenient new type of loading gate, devised by Winchester plant superintendent Nelson King (King’s Improvement). The gate passed cartridges through the side of the receiver. This improvement made the lever action more functional and allowed for the installation of a wooden fore-end integrating a round sealed magazine which was covered by the fore stock. The rifles chambered in the rimfire .44 Henry were nicknamed the "Yellow Boy" because of its "brass" receiver (actually a bronze alloy called gunmetal). This is a rare to find original example of the yellow boy saddle carbine in .44 Henry Flat RF calibre. It has a 20” blued barrel and measures 39 ¼” overall. The barrel's rifled bore has staining consistent with age & use. It’s all original wood work has just bumps and bruises to be expected.
