This is an example of bullet art. Classically, bullet art was created by exhibition and trick
 shooters at carnivals and rodeo's during the mid 1900's. The example above was
 created by "Two Ponies" several years ago with a .22 caliber rifle.


Shown above is a classic example of a Winchester second model 1890 rifle. This case hardening
 and coloring process was applied at the factory. The color is very shallow and delicate and 
very quickly wore off with handling and use. Quite often guns are seen with one side very
 colorful and the opposite side dull or gray due to exposure or sunlight during storage.
