Book Review: The Winchester-Lee Rifle, by Eugene Myszkowski

James Paris Lee began designing and patenting firearms in 1862, but it was not until 1875 that any of his designs were put into limited manufacture. He would ultimately see four of his rifles adopted by the US military (M1879, M1883, M1885, M1895), plus a large royalty from the British government for use of his patents in the Lee-Enfield family of rifles. The book we are looking at today is specifically on the M1895 Lee Navy rifle, an interesting straight-pull design in 6mm.
