Deputy U.S. Marshal Bass Reeves
Collector’s Grade Uberti-Winchester 1873 .44-40 carbine with blued barrel
Born a slave in Crawford County, Arkansas in 1838 and overcoming tremendous challenges, no one could have foreseen that the man known as Bass Reeves would grow up to become one of the greatest lawmen in the Old West! Admired, feared, and respected by friends and foe alike, he achieved legendary status just as much for his character and strength of will as for his deadly aim, his imposing presence, physical ability, tracking skills, and the sheer number of criminals he captured.
In honor of this heroic legacy, and in cooperation with noted author and historian Art Burton, the U.S. Marshal Museum, and the Bass Reeves Legacy Initiative, Wellington LTD is proud to honor this true American western hero by introducing the Deputy U.S. Marshal Bass Reeves Special Edition!
Modeled on a Uberti-Winchester 1873 .44-40 cal. carbine, identical in make and model to the one carried by Marshal Reeves for the bulk of his career, it is richly engraved in 24-karat gold and nickel with scenes taken directly from the life of Bass Reeves.
