Annie Oakley 'Western Girl'<br />
<br />
A 130-year-old shotgun once wielded by famed Wild West gunslinger Annie Oakley has emerged for sale for £60,000.<br />
<br />
Oakley was just 25 when she shot to fame as the top attraction in Buffalo Bill Cody's travelling Wild West show, drawing crowds with her incredible shooting skills.<br />
<br />
The 1883 16-gauge Parker hammer shotgun is thought to be Oakley's first proper gun and came to be one of her favourites.
