Item specifics

Up for auction is my extremely rare Buffalo Bill Winchester.  This was a special order Item from the Franklin Mint in the early 1980’s.  They only made a few of these, they were not mass produced like the other Mint Items, they had to be ordered in advance. This is a very high quality reproduction, (not like most if the mint stuff)  Beautiful Walnut Checkered stocks, Gold Plated, Every detail of the original.  This rifle is a NON-Firing Reproduction of the Buffalo Bill Cody Winchester on display at the Cody Firearms Museum.  The original rifle was sent to the Franklin by the Cody Museum in a joint effort to recreate an exact copy of the original Rifle.


I don’t have the cheep mounting plaque that came with the rifle.  This auction is only for the rifle and the paperwork shown in the listing.  I have included copies of original letters between the Franklin Mint and the Cody museum, I also included are to programs and one picture post card. 


The rifle is in good shape, there are some slight signs of pitting on the barrel, but nothing major.  The Rifle looks awesome!  I look for these on eBay and have only seen two listed in the last 10 years.  Don’t let this one get away.

NO INTERNATIONAL BIDS without prior approval!!   (My Standard ebay Disclaimer) . No one can be expected to be an expert at everything. I have done my best to describe the item accurately, and in an honest opinion. It is highly suggested you look at the pictures, and read the descriptions to determine if the item is what you want. If you are still unsure, please ask questions before you bid.


 I will only accept returns if the item is not as described, most of the items I sell are antiques and do show signs of age and  handling.  Check my feedback, never had a problem!!!   High bidder pays actual packing/shipping/insurance costs and agrees to submit payment within 10 days of close of auction. *****
