It’s all made of solid knotty alder. Carving done with Carvewright unit. 12’ long x 5 1/2’ tall. The second display was a rush job so just made it out of pine but got it done today to make the truck to Cody tomorrow morning.

The guns belong to a very good friend that has been collecting Winchesters for over forty years, so I made this for him. Some of these guns are very rare, if not by quantity then for their quality. All of the guns carry their original bluing finish. I’ve only been collecting for 15 years. The guns run in age from the end of the Civil War up to Vietnam. Thanks for the compliments.

Thanks Robert, that display along with one I finished today will be going to the Cody museum this next week. If you like guns google “Robert Auth Winchesters” those are the guns going into todays display. Those 3 rifles were just appraised for $50,000. It was a last minuet job but I’ll get a photo of that one after I shoot clear on it tomorrow.

What type of security does your friend have for his collection? Personally, if I had a valuable collection like that, I wouldn’t tell anyone. The museum will have good security, obviously.
The display is top notch- right on target!

Locks and a dog and when they do come back from the Cody museum they will go into another museum here in our area, and they have an alarm system and its less than a block away from the police and sheriff.
