In 1877 the Russians invaded the Ottoman Empire. The Turks however had a little surprise in store. The Ottoman Army was armed with the Winchester 1866. The Model 1866 was a lever action repeating rifle that was made in the US. The picture above is an example of a Winchester that the Turks modified for even greater firepower. The magazine and barrel was often extended to 20 or even 30 rounds and the rifle may be mounted on a bipod or tripod.
