Description from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winchester_rifle

In common usage Winchester rifle usually means any of the lever-action rifles manufactured by the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, most typically the Winchester Model 1873, Winchester Model 1892 or the Winchester Model 1894 rifles. The company has also manufactured many rifles of other action types.
Winchester rifles were among the earliest repeating rifles, and the Winchester name became a partially genericised trademark synonymous with lever-action firearms. The gun is colloquially known as "The Gun that Won the West", though public perception of its role in the Western Expansion is exaggerated due to the Winchester's prominence in 20th Century fictionalized accounts of that period.
