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>You can scale the drawings on here with one of two programs: The Big Picture, which is free, or buy Matthias Wandel's Big Print, which is a much better program that allows you to take a measurement from a real item and use that to make a 1:1 (or any size) template from your silhouette drawings. It will allow you to print on several pages, if need be to get the complete drawing.</p>
<p>I made this for a show I'm in! Great design. Made a couple 'hero' versions and several dummy versions for set pieces. </p><p>https://www.instructables.com/id/Lever-Action-Rifle-Prop/</p>
I made a cardboard version of this, and will make some wooden ones sometime. thanks for the 'ible and the idea if tracing gun shapes.
<p>Cool. I would be happy if you'd share a picture or two :-) </p>
<p>amazing I love Sam winchea</p>
Thanks Cloud 1808 :-)
<p>not shooting?</p>
<p><font><font>schade das kein Plan zum ausdrucken dabei ist!</font></font></p>
<p>Na, ja... aber die Zeichnungen sin massstabsgetreu abgebildet. Du musst sie nur in der gew&uuml;nschten Gr&ouml;sse ausdrukken, dann gehts los :-)</p>
<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!
thats cool, my friends always saying f i make him a winchestor prop he'll pay me &acirc;‚&not;5, but i would charge atleast &acirc;‚&not;100 for 1
