Our Assessment: W.F. Cody, Chief of Scouts… If there was ever a true man’s man or the epitome of ‘cowboy’, it was Buffalo Bill. Few rode, shot or tamed the west like Buffalo Bill, and it seemed only fitting that Winchester create a rifle in his honor. This rifle is from 1968, and while it has seen light us, it has been cherished and cared for. The gun will perform for you as a new field rifle or hunting gun, or it will proudly display in your collection. Either way, this is a beautiful and functional C&R eligible rifle.
