Winchester John Wayne
Barrel length: 18 1 / 2.
Engraved + ring of saddle
John Wayne, one of the most legendary Western movie stars, often used a Winchester Model 1892 with an oversized loop lever, which allowed him to cock the rifle by spinning it around on his hand. “The Duke” used this rifle, and technique, in numerous films, including the climax of “True Grit” where he charges at Ned Pepper’s gang with a Single Action Army in one hand, the 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine in the other and the reins in his teeth.
This one is a model 94, in 32-40.
