John Wayne Lil Duke Lever Action .177 Cal. BB Gun Air Rifle
Throughout his iconic film career, John Wayne trail-blazed across the silver screen, captured hearts worldwide, and portrayed courage in the face of all odds, as only he could. To honor the Duke’s legacy, Air Venturi presents the Officially Licensed John Wayne Lil’ Duke .177 Caliber Lever-Action BB Rifle. The gun is cocked via a lever, but this one is shaped like the lever on the Duke’s Winchester 92 he used in several movies — the most famous of which was his charge at the end of the movie, True Grit. That special lever allowed Wayne to twirl the rifle, cocking it as he did, so he could fire more rapidly than a normal lever would permit. This unique rifle features a stained wood stock etched with the Duke’s likeness and the words “Lil’ Duke” across the fore-grip. The big man’s signature stands out in high relief on the action of the gun. Its large loop cocking mechanism makes for one of the easiest guns to cock and lock. The gun has a 550 shot capacity and launches BBs downrange at speeds up to 350 fps; perfect for knocking down cans and shredding paper targets.
