Seen in the hands of countless cowboys in numerous Hollywood westerns, the Winchester, lever-action “repeating rifle,” was the weapon of choice for the Western horseman. For good reason, it allowed the user to fire a number of shots before having to reload. The Winchester was conveniently carried in a tooled leather scabbard that was strapped to the saddle, where it was kept safe, easily drawn, and ready at all times. This rifle was the iconic firearm of 19th century America, which is why it is often called “The Gun that Won the West.”
