The Coolest Movie Guns
Firearms have been a part of the movies since “The Great Train Robbery” flashed onto the Silver Screen in 1903. In many movies the gun is as important as the character, and often is what makes a scene iconic. AmericanRifleman.org has put together a list of 10 favorite movie guns and why they are so remembered.
John Wayne’s Winchester Model 1892 from “True Grit”
John Wayne, one of the most legendary Western movie stars, often used a Winchester Model 1892 with an oversized loop lever, which allowed him to cock the rifle by spinning it around on his hand. “The Duke” used this rifle, and technique, in numerous films, including the climax of “True Grit” where he charges at Ned Pepper’s gang with a Single Action Army in one hand, the 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine in the other and the reins in his teeth.
