Guns don’t come more iconic than a Winchester, and there’s no more iconic Winchester than the Winchester Model 1873, known as ‘The Gun That Won The West.’

This special order Model 1873 is factory engraved and was manufactured in 1876 for one Julius B. Sheldon. Mr Sheldon knew his guns: the engraved silver plating and polished walnut stocks help make this a thing of beauty.

You can place a bid at Rock Island Auction Company’s firearm auction from December 2-4. For more info, see
