Female feeding anger in Winchester? (5)


I believe the answer is:


'winchester?' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'female feeding anger' is the wordplay.
'female' becomes 'f' (common abbreviation).
'feeding' indicates putting letters inside (one word is fed by another set of letters).
'anger' becomes 'rile' (rile can mean to annoy or anger).
'f' going inside 'rile' is 'RIFLE'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for rifle that I've seen before include "Gun; plunder" , "Standard military gun fired from shoulder" , "Search and rob for army weapon" , "Ransack; a weapon" , "Search and rob - with long gun?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
