The Cody Firearms Museum, at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody has captivated visitors to its latest exhibit featuring unique firearms engraved by Ray Wielgus-a style, variously described as “art deco” or “oriental”.

In this collection, visitors can see an embellished full-size and a miniature version of the grandfather of Winchester’s lever action rifles, the Volcanic pistol. In addition to notable western firearms, they can view accented military arms such as the Colt Model 1860 Army Revolver and the more “beautiful” firearms, like the Smith and Wesson Ladysmith that represents the soaring popularity of firearms among women.
