Winchester's turning 150, and we've got to say—the company is looking pretty good for its age. As such, it's celebrating the landmark anniversary by bringing an array of legendary firearms to the 145th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Louisville this weekend.

The featured firearms at the Winchester booth will include:

The Great Basin, Lost & Forgotten Model 1873

Henry Ford Model 87
Zane Grey Model 95

The Winchester Repeating Arms booth, meanwhile, will host the following:

The first ever Winchester branded rifle, Model 1866
Buffalo Bill's Model 1873 Smoothbore that he used in his Wild West Show
President Eisenhower's Custom Model 1894
President Kennedy's Custom Model 70
Former Winchester Canada President R.F. Bucher's Custom Model 101

Attendees will also have the opportunity to bid on custom-built Winchester 150th Commemorative Firearm/Bullet Boards.
