Lawmen of the rough-and-tumble era of the early American West were honored in 1978 with a special edition firearm--the Legendary Lawmen Model 94 Carbine.

Remarks:
The carbine features a 16-inch Trapper barrel, popular with lawmen in the early West. The receiver has an antique silver finish engraved on both sides with scenes of peace officers in action. A marshall's badge and a lawman astride his galloping mount adorn the receiver's right side; on the left side is a lawman riding back through town with an outlaw in tow. A nickel-silver medallion is inlaid in the buttstock. Within the outline of a lawman's badge, the medallion portrays a sheriff, gun poised and ready to draw, standing on the main street of a typical western town. The packaging sleeve shows a color montage of Western lawmen working to keep the peace on the frontier. Re-accessioned 4-28-93, JMH; Silver plated receiver. no written record for this firearm.
