Buffalo Bill museum acquires Lone Ranger's pistol

April 18, 2014View for printing

It's been a long time since John Hart galloped a horse into the sunset after the cry of "Hi-yo Silver! Away!," but the pistol he carried during his stint as the Lone Ranger on television recently cantered in to Cody, Wyo.

"It's a beautiful gun," said Warren Newman, curator of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West's Cody Firearms Museum, where the pistol is now on display. "And the (Ben) Shostle engraving adds to the beauty."
