Manufactured from 1883 to 1885, the Burgess rifle and carbine were Colt’s answer to Winchester’s popular lever-action rifle.

But it was such a formidable business threat that Winchester turned its attention to pistol production.

To prevent disaster, high-level politicians stepped in and put pressure on both companies. Folklore says it was one of the first big back-room deals between large gun companies.

By the time an agreement was reached and production stopped, Colt had produced 6,400 Burgess lever actions.
