This is as requested a DIY on, how to make a wooden toy Winchester rifle with a functioning lever action. NOTE: The lever is designed a bit different, than the real ting, for stability reason.

Step 1: The principle drawings

First I drew up the different layers in illustrator based on a real picture. Notice, that the trigger is included in the lever - that is done for stability reason...
<p>Great design and plan. Do the PDF download include dimensions for overall rifle and each part? I'm wondering about signing up. Is the a way to buy just this one plan instead of signing up as Pro?</p>
Hi! My instructable doesn't include dimensions &ndash; it's ment as a generic idea :-) &ndash; to show what's possible &ndash; sorry :-) But if you print out the picture really big you should be able to trace your own blueprint on paper. <br>If you cut out the paper parts, you should be able to check if everyting will work, once it's done i wood. &ndash; Hope that helped :-)
<p>ok. If you don't mind telling, what's the overall length of the rifle you made? Or length of the &quot;barrel&quot; past wood part just to give a sense of length? Thanks.</p>
<p>The barrel is about 35 cm. I scaled it to fit a 10 year old. If it's for an adult, you might make it a bit longer - say 40-45 cm...</p>
That's cool, I'm going to use that design and make the rosebox shotgun from terminator.
Awesome! Please do post a picture when your are done :-)
Does it shoot rubberbands or no??? <br>
In this model, the rubber band is purely used to retract the lever back into the idle position, but you are on to a nice idea for version two :-) ...
U da man!!!!
Has anyone shot one of these or a similar gun? I shot a .44 lever-action rifle, and it was probably my most favorite gun Ive shot!
