I wanted to create a gun that instantly transported you to the west while also giving it a sense of history, story, and prior use. The "Blanket Gun" concept fit very well with what I wanted to accomplish so it was very easy to start concepting right away.

Winchester M1873 "Blanket Gun"

This piece is inspired by a 17th century, Native American Blanket Gun. I had previously found an image of a "condensed" version of the rifle in the form of "Mare's Leg" from the film "Wanted: Dead or Alive". I wanted to create a gun that instantly transported you to the west while also giving it a sense of history, story, and prior use. The "Blanket Gun" concept fit very well with what I wanted to accomplish so it was very easy to start concepting right away. I went through many iterations before settling with the final design.
