On May 10, 1869 the Union Pacific and Central Pacific railroads met at Promontory Summit, Utah, where the two were linked by a final, ceremonial spike made of gold. Our nation, still recovering from the Civil War, was finally unified by a transcontinental ribbon of steel stretching from sea to shining sea. The Winchester® Model 1873 Golden Spike 150th Anniversary Commemorative Rifle celebrates this monumental milestone of perseverance and innovation, which stands as one of the most significant events in American history.
The Winchester Model 1873 was introduced four short years after the completion of the transcontinental railroad. It soon made its way west with settlers, ranchers, farmers and tens of thousands of others who depended on it. They are the ones who made it The Gun That Won The West.
