Jack O'Connor's Rifle
This is Jack O'Connor's Winchester Model 70 in .270. The rifle was on display because Winchester is rolling out two tribute guns for O'Connor, both featuring the pre-64 action.
Thanks to O'Connor's adventures printed monthly in Outdoor Life, the .270 Winchester became one of the most popular cartridges in the country. Even more importantly, thousands of kids were inspired by O'Connor's writings to venture out into the wilderness in search of game big and small.
If you don't believe that a gun can have an aura about it, then you need to see Jack's rifle in person.
