M1895 Lee rifle manual

A little while back, I posted a Winchester handbook on the commercial version of the M1895 Lee straight-pull Navy rifle. We came across a full military manual on the rifle as well, and we’ve got it scanned for you. It has quite a bit more information on the rifle, and some good descriptive illustrations.

(1896) M1895 Navy Lee manual (English)


  1. excellent manual two months ago i found an old english patent about paris lee inventor for an straight pull rifle, i try to compare that with this drawings, i think is the same design

  2. I have a Lee Navy Straight Pull that is a sporter model with a beautiful Winchester maple stock. It may have been reblued because it has a deep blue purple finish in excellent condition and have been told if it was reblued it was done in the teens or early 20’s. What do you think it is and possible value?
