The rifle is still having its serial number on it and when they took it to the museum they told that it was made in 1882.
This gun will be preserved as it is and it will be displayed at the national park.
If it was possible for the gun to speak then in its harsh voice it will repeat weird settlers that are wandering around on the horses back in the wild environment of Nevada. It will talk about having a ride on the holster that is tied with the rider across the neighboring areas in Utah more than 100 years ago before it became a state of union.
The people who work in the National Park found the model of Winchester rifle 1873 that was standing with a support by a tree in the desert. The year when it was made and the details about it were also mentioned on the gun.
No one is aware of how long time this gun was standing there in the trees after someone left it there so carelessly without having any idea that it’s the gun that rules the west. May be the owner of the gun was in hurry and left it behind in haste or maybe they didn’t see it so perfectly hidden between the trees.
Wind, snow, heat, nothing was able to vanish the beauty of this gun which was hidden. Its rusty barrel is still having the engraved name of the mode and the serial number of the gun.
The gun was made and shipped in eighties according to the museum research. The year was 1882 and the records didn’t mentioned who bought this gun. Either it was manufactured or maybe it was shipped on demand.
