Winchester Founded in 1866, Winchester is one of the world's most widely recognized and respected brand names.
For more than 140 years, the name "Winchester" has come to mean many things to many people. To most folks it means ammunition and the Gun that Won the West. For many others, however, it also rekindles images of fine hand tools and cutlery, fishing tackle, the classic artwork and hunting traditions.
But to all people the legendary Winchester name and trademark have always represented a long and responsible heritage of commitment, pride and high-quality products. A name, rest assured, that will always take a leading role in advancing and supporting conservation, hunter education and our country's proud shooting sports heritage.
A major global supplier of sporting ammunition, Winchester has long been the leader in introducing innovative new products from its new line of Blind Side steel waterfowl shotshells or its PDX1 Defender ammunition for personal defense.
