Texas 175th Anniversary Winchester Model 1873 rifle

2020 marks Texas’s175th Anniversary and to celebrate this history and heritage, we are offering a family heirloom in the honor the Sovereign Nation of Texas.  The founding fathers of Texas, the brave Texans who fought for Independence, the cattle industry that started Texas and the Capitol.

The rifle comes with the classic 24” octagon barrel and upgraded grade II/III Walnut stock.  Everything is bigger in Texas and that is why the reproduction of the Model 1873 lever action rifle is used.  

On December 29th, 1845, Texas joined the Union as the 28th State. Sovereign Texas would become the only state to ever be a country before it became a state. This sense of Independence has lead the Lone Star State to be a leader for our country. Texas is our country’s icon for Freedom and its citizens are Proud. 2020 will mark Texas’s 175th Anniversary and to celebrate this history and heritage, an heirloom is now available to carry on this legacy. Etched into steel is the foundation of this great state. Included on the shotgun are the founding fathers of Texas, the brave Texans who fought for Independence, the cattle industry that started Texas and the Capitol.
Texas is directly tied to Leadership. Texas has produced presidents, war heroes, industry moguls, athletes and many proud citizens that defend and support American values. Texans hold themselves to higher standards than the common man. This drive has lead to success and the willingness for others to follow them. This anniversary shotgun recognizes just a few of those key leaders that have paved the way.
