The Lones Wigger firearm auction benefiting USA Shooting’s youth shooting programs has come to an end with a total of $70,278 raised.

“We are thrilled with the outcome of the auction and the generosity of those that participated,” said Deena McDorman, Wigger’s daughter. “We hope buyers will cherish their winnings and understand their significance in promoting junior shooting programs. My Dad would be pleased.” 

The family of Lones Wigger donated more than 30 firearms and Olympic memorabilia that were auctioned off on GunBroker.com. The Lones Wigger firearm auction was curated by Sportsman’s Legacy.

The selection of guns that were auctioned included Winchester Models 52, 75 and 94 rifles, Anschutz rimfires and centerfires, and others from Wichita, Remington, Smith & Wesson, Mauser, Ithaca, Browning and Walther.

A four-time Olympian and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, Wigger is an iconic figure in the shooting sports. He won 111 international medals, three Olympic medals and is the only USA Shooting team member ever named to the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee Hall of Fame.

The Lones Wigger Youth Program Endowment with the MidwayUSA Foundation creates a lasting legacy for the shooting sports by providing additional funding for USA Shooting to expand youth programs and enhance grassroots development.
