“STAGECOACH” WINCHESTER MODEL 1892 - This .32-20 caliber Model 1892 Winchester was cut down to 15" so John Wayne could spin the gun much like he would a pistol, without it hitting under his arm. In his opening scene in John Ford's classic 1939 western – where The Duke starred as The Ringo Kid – Wayne does just that to hail the stagecoach. Registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934, this gun was one of the oldest originally registered NFA firearms.

Winchester Model 1886 .45-90 – Theodore Roosevelt won a tennis match in the summer of 1887 and used the winnings to purchase this deluxe Winchester Model 1886 with numerous factory extras such as deluxe wood, hand checkering, ½ round ½ octangular barrel, shotgun butt and button magazine. He kept it looking nice and new by sending it back to Winchester no less than five times.
