A Bit of History to Include Oliver Winchester, John Moses Browning and Henry Ford by Ron Spomer and Ashley Hlebinsky
What do Oliver Winchester, John Moses Browning and Henry Ford have in common? It's the Winchester Model 1887 lever-action shotgun.
A Browning design shotgun produced by Winchester as serial #1, and purchased by Henry Ford….and then gifted to Harvey Firestone of Firestone Tires. Guns, cars and tires. Obviously the lineage of this particular gun is beyond fascinating…and just a small part of Winchester’s unique 150 year history.
