Jack's famous Biesen stocked M-70 .270 is on display as is Eleanor O'Connor's 7x57 Mauser. These two rifles have appeared in more articles and had more written about them than any rifles in history. Other O'Connor firearms are also on display.
The center houses a gift shop with clothing and other logoed merchandise as well as original O'Connor books for sale.
