A little too cartoonish for me and its missing the model 85 and some other models of note.

The poster does say Winchester Repeating Rifles so the 85 is disquallified.
NOTE: the 76 carbine is wrong and I do agree that it is not real well done overall.

I wonder where the guy got the images for his print? ’73 and ’92 carbines have rifle buttplates. I know, that’s not impossible, but why show them that way? ’76 carbine is wrong. I guess it’s okay for someone that knows nothing about Winchesters.

Years ago I saw a guy try to sell his drawings of a first model 73 on Ebay and it looked terrible so I emailed him pointing out the flaws. I ended up sending him photos and pointing out little problems and he finally got it right. I saw him list the prints for a couple years but don’t know how many he sold. I think this guy is doing something similar. I see lots of mistakes like the guns all have sporting sights on them that are on backwards except for the 73 which could be a early one with a reverse sight and the front sights are backwards as well.

Well if a Spencer, a gun that you have to cock the hammer every time you shoot it, is considered a repeating rifle. Whats the difference? You might as well throw the 85 for good taste if anything! And the 87 too boot.

The poster would look better if it had all of the early models was my point. Not too mention the flaws in the details on it.

It was a good shot at a poster.
