John Browning designed High Wall single shot rifles for Winchester at the end of the buffalo hunting era. These accurate Winchester rifles made a name for themselves in the golden age of target shooting. By the late 1800s, the international sport of competitive long-range rifle shooting was widely followed in the United States. The biggest target event was the United States National Match in Creedmore, New York.
Today, Uberti makes three models of the 1885 High Wall, chambered in the classic buffalo cartridges-.45-70, .45-90, and .45-120, just like the original High Wall Winchester rifles.
With a High Wall Single Shot Sporting Rifle or Carbine from Uberti, you can relive a time when rifle shooting was more than a pastime; it was a serious business.
