The Cody Firearms Museum at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center picked up a little more presidential flavor recently, after adding a custom rifle once owned by Ronald Reagan to its collection.

The Cody, Wyo. based museum is displaying the Winchester Model 64 Lever Action Rifle that was presented to Reagan by Frank Pachmayr. It features engravings from Master Engraver R. Boucher and has gold inlays that represent various stages of Reagan's career, from his days as a young football player to his time spent in the White House.

The rifle joins the museum's growing collection of former Presidential firearms. Reagan's rifle will join a collection of guns once owned by Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, John F. Kennedy, Dwight Eisenhower and Lyndon Johnson.
