Virginia-based Taylor’s & Company this week introduced their latest version of John Browning's classic Model 1886 lever-action hunting rifle. 

While the new TC86 Takedown has a list of classic features such as a color-case receiver and checkered pistol grip walnut stock and matching forearm, it also has contemporary field-ready upgrades to include a rubber butt plate, a wide lever ideal for use with gloves, and a top-mounted Weaver rail with an accompanying peep sight. It is chambered in the hard-hitting and seemingly immortal .45-70 Government.

The TC86 has a 16.5-inch barrel and features a blend of both 19th and 21st century features. Plus, as a takedown design, it can easily be stowed for packing into the backcountry. 

"Taylor’s & Company brings to the gun enthusiast classic firearms that made cowboys, lawmen and outlaws famous, but with a modern twist,” said Rob Girard, VP of sales and marketing. "All Taylor’s premium firearms are made using the latest in precision machinery and high-quality materials with one goal in mind; to create reliable and accurate reproductions of Civil War, Old West, hunting and tactical guns from the 19th century. The TC86 Takedown is a perfect example of this."

MSRP on the Taylor's TC86 Takedown is a very specific $1839.86.
