America Remembers
The John Wayne Tribute Rifle Could Be YOURS
     John Wayne stood larger than life on the silver screen, and just as tall in real life. During his long career, he appeared in more than 150 films, and audiences around the world recognized him as the one man who best represented the patriotic spirit of America.
     More than 25 years after his death, John Wayne still ranks among the top 10 most popular movie stars in the annual Harris Poll, and his movies continue to be viewed by millions of Americans, ensuring his status as a legendary American icon.
     Many people remember him best from his Westerns. He was the lawman who tamed the wild towns, the gunfighter who stood up for the poor and powerless, the iron-willed westerner who wouldn’t back down.
     Now, America Remembers, with authorization from Wayne Enterprises, proudly announces the John Wayne Tribute Rifle, a handsomely decorated firearm issued in remembrance and tribute to this distinguished American and legendary Western film star.

Model:  Model 1873 Rifle (Uberti)
Barrel Length:  19"
Caliber:  .45LC
Edition Limit:  3500
Decoration: Each Tribute rifle is decorated by craftsmen specifically commissioned by America Remembers.

To honor America’s favorite Western movie star, we selected the classic Model ‘73 rifle, arguably America’s most famous Western rifle. Often called “the rifle that won the West,” the Model ‘73 has been admired for decades as an engineering landmark, representing light-weight utility and long-ranged power. The rugged lever action proved simple to operate and offered quick and plentiful firepower. Since its days of action on the Western frontier, the Model ‘73 has become a classic – widely desired and highly collectible. Each John Wayne Tribute Rifle is a handsome working recreation of the immortal Winchester Model 1873 rifle produced for us by the master craftsmen of A. Uberti, the world’s premier maker of historical firearms recreations.

Every metal surface of the John Wayne Tribute Rifle is finished in a mirror-polished, lustrous deep blue by craftsmen commissioned for this project by America Remembers. The receiver features artwork in 24-karat gold and scrollwork in the  tradition of the finest presentation firearms.

The right side of the receiver features a scene familiar to every fan of Western classics. In it, John Wayne leads the U.S. Cavalry through the buttes and dry gullies of desolate Monument Valley. Above the scene flies a banner that reads “John Wayne.” Left side of the receiver features John Wayne as a wagon train scout, leading settlers and a cavalry escort through Apache territory. This scene was taken from the painting, “Under Attack,” by famed Western artist Frank McCarthy. And if you look closely, you will see a rifle in John Wayne’s right hand! Handsome scrollwork in the tradition of the finest firearms frames the artwork, with all artwork being featured in stunning 24-karat gold.
The handsome walnut stocks are checkered and finished to a high gloss, and the hammer ,trigger, barrel bracket, barrel plug and stock ring are polished and decorated in 24-karat gold.
Did you notice the left side of the barrel features John Wayne’s signature, and inset into the stock is a 24-karat gold-plated medallion with John Wayne’s portrait. The handsome walnut stocks are checkered and finished to a high gloss, and the hammer and trigger are polished and decorated in 24-karat gold.

At center is the Air Traffic Controller; he coordinates all flight activities within the airhead, air traffic control area. At right is Control Point Security; he maintains a watchful eye and monitors radio communications. In an emergency, he is prepared to immediately take over from one of the other two operators. Supporting the air traffic control team are other controllers. They are disbursed around the formation, forming a security perimeter.
