Brass-framed Model 1894s

I took the liberty of correcting the section pertaining to the Model 1894s seen in the background in the gunshop scene. They are not "Model 1964" Winchesters as they were so labeled by the previous editor. They are commemorative models produced by Winchester to honor the 100 year anniversary of the founding of the company in 1966. They were specifically called the "Centennial '66" by Winchester, and they're essentially just standard model Winchester 1894s chambered in .30-30 but with octagonal barrels and brass frames and butt plates in order to make it resemble the old Winchester Model 1866. I know someone in real life who owns one and I have seen at least one used in another old Western movie from around the same time frame as this one as a stand-in for an original Winchester 1866. I can't remember the name of the movie, but I remember noticing the rifle and knowing what it actually was. -- -Jared (talk) 22:35, 21 August 2020 (EDT)
