For these collectible firearms, America Remembers has spared no effort in creating a handsome, museum-quality masterpiece, which is a tribute truly befitting this legendary American icon, along with the Western film roles he embodied. To honor America’s favorite Western movie star, we selected the classic Model ‘73 rifle, arguably America’s most famous Western rifle. Often called “the rifle that won the West,” the Model ‘73 has been admired for decades as an engineering landmark, representing light-weight utility and long-ranged power. The rugged lever action proved simple to operate and offered quick and plentiful firepower. Since its days of action on the Western frontier, the Model ‘73 has become a classic – widely desired and highly collectible. Each John Wayne Rifle is a handsome working recreation of the immortal Winchester Model 1873 rifle produced for us by the master craftsmen of A. Uberti, the world’s premier maker of historical firearms recreations. Every metal surface of this John Wayne commemorative rifle is finished in a mirror-polished, lustrous deep blue. Craftsmen commissioned by America Remembers decorate each of these commemorative firearms. The receiver features artwork in 24-karat gold and scrollwork in the tradition of the finest presentation firearms. Only 3,500 John Wayne Tribute Rifles have been authorized for this edition and demand is expected to be very strong for these collector guns. The left side of the barrel features John Wayne’s signature, and inset into the stock is a 24-karat gold-plated medallion with John Wayne’s portrait. The handsome walnut stocks are checkered on this John Wayne commemorative rifle and finished to a high gloss, and the hammer and trigger are polished and decorated in 24-karat gold. The right side of this John Wayne rifle, the receiver features a scene familiar to every fan of Western classics. In it, John Wayne leads the U.S. Cavalry through the buttes and dry gullies of desolate Monument Valley. Above the scene flies a banner that reads “John Wayne.” The left side of the receiver features John Wayne as a wagon train scout, leading settlers and a cavalry escort through Apache territory. This scene was taken from the painting, “Under Attack,” by famed Western artist Frank McCarthy. If you look closely on this John Wayne commemorative rifle, you will see a rifle in John Wayne’s right hand! Handsome scrollwork in the tradition of the finest firearms frames the artwork, with all artwork being featured in stunning 24-karat gold on these commemorative firearms.
