Winchester, and the Cody Museum, brought some cool old guns for display at SHOT Show this year. This mini-museum was to honor Winchester on their 150th birthday. Take a look at the photos below for a taste of some historic Winchesters.
JFK’s Model 70 in .243 was still being finished when he was shot. The 94 was owned by President Eisenhower.
Very fancy Winchester 101 shotgun. This one was owned by the President of Winchester Canada. Damascus barrels,too.
Beautiful walnut stock on the 101 over/under.
Very detailed engraving on the Model 101.
Looks like an old and worn 1873 and that it is. But this one was owned by Buffalo Bill Cody.
Buffalo Bill’s 1873 was not your average Winchester. His had a smooth barrel for shooting shot for tricks in his wild west show.
Buffalo Bill’s hat!
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the company, Winchester is making a couple of commemorative editions. The guns look sharp. If you’re looking for a safe queen, these two guns may be ideal. We got to see them first hand at the show. They’ll be available soon, and only for this anniversary year. There won’t be another until the 200th anniversary, so act now if you want one.
