1892 'John Wayne' Lever-Action Rifle, #22-1069L
1892 'John Wayne' Lever Action Rifle
- John Wayne was so partial to the original of this large-loop, 1892 carbine that he used it in 'El Dorado', 'Sons of Katie Elder' and dozens of other movies. This commemorative model, emblazoned with his gold-finish initials on the stock, celebrates his devotion to this classic Old West rifle. Feel the heft and test the famed lever action. Our non-firing replica is made of metal and wood, and all the mechanical parts work!
HISTORY: Made for fifty years (1892 to 1941), the 1892 Carbine is one of the most popular rifles ever made! Its lighter weight and quick action made it as popular with TV and movie cowboys as it was with hunters. The 1892 was used in many westerns--even though most of them were set in a time before this model was actually made.
