“STAGECOACH” WINCHESTER MODEL 1892 - This .32-20 caliber Model 1892 Winchester was cut down to 15" so John Wayne could spin the gun much like he would a pistol, without it hitting under his arm. In his opening scene in John Ford's classic 1939 western – where The Duke starred as The Ringo Kid – Wayne does just that to hail the stagecoach. Registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934, this gun was one of the oldest originally registered NFA firearms.
