Left: Uberti 1885 High Wall single shot rifles include a break-down cleaning rod that fits in a compartment in the butt stock. Middle & Right: Uberti’s accessory sights include a Creedmore-style sight (left) that fits the 1885 High Wall rifle. The tang-mounted, rear sight comes complete with tunnel front sight. (Also available from Uberti: the Lyman sight (right), a tang-mounted rear sight that fits the Uberti 1873 Rifle and Carbine. The 1873 models must be drilled and tapped to accept the rear tang sight.)
Left: High Wall ammunition: The .45-70 Government cartridge (left) was named for the .45-caliber bullet with a cartridge case holding 70 grains of black powder that was adopted by the U.S. military in the 1870s. The .45-90 (center) held 90 grains of black powder. And the buffalo hunter’s favorite, the .45-120 (right) held a whopping 120 grains of powder. Middle & Right: The loading lever on the 1885 High Wall (left) opens or locks the rifle’s falling-block action (right).
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.
