John Wayne’s silvered signature graces the short 18 1/2 inch barrel. The ladder style carbine rear sight is fully adjustable. Two silver nickel nitride barrel bands match the receiver.
Left side of the scroll engraved silver nickel nitride receiver displays two portraits of John Wayne, along with a banner that reads John Wayne American, 1907-2007, all richly accented by a deeply blued saddle ring, trigger and hammer.
John Wayne was born on May 26, 1907. The Duke,
as friends and family called him, made over 175 movies spanning 50 years. And in every one of the western movies he starred in, he always requested one rifle, a Winchester with a large loop lever. Although the beloved man is no longer galloping full speed with reins in his mouth and Winchester in hand, his legend lives on.
To celebrate his 100th birthday, Winchester proudly announces the John Wayne 100th Anniversary High Grade 1892 Rifle. Built to exacting specifications of the man himself and licensed by the John Wayne family, this limited edition rifle is sure to become a sought after collectors item by those who loved the man with True Grit.
