The Blue Trail Range began as part of the Lyman Gun Sight Corp, founded by William Lyman. The Lyman’s were basically farmers, but William wanted to be an inventor. His inventions included the wringer washing machine and the first bow facing row boat. During the Civil War, he developed the No. 1 tang sight. Practically all firearms manufactured between WWI and the 1950’s had Lyman sights on them. During World War II, Winchester used the range for military weaponry test firing.
