Commemorative rifle sale to benefit museum

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – A Cheyenne gun shop is selling limited edition commemorative rifles and knives to benefit the Old West Museum.

Frontier Antiques and Collectables is partnering with the Cheyenne Frontier Days museum and American Legacy Firearms of Fort Collins, Colo., for the project.

American Legacy Co-President Steve Faler says the rifles are a historic model, the .30-30 Winchester Model 94. The company is making 100 of them and $100 from each sale will go to the museum.

Artist Greg Randall designed the engravings, which depict Cheyenne-area historical events and characters.

The guns will be sold for $1,299 until May, when the price will increase to $1,499.
