At RIA.  I know we’ve talked about this one before when it was up for auction. I can’t recall what it sold for.  It is an interesting rifle.  You don’t often see, “hand made stock” mentioned in a museum letter.

So in other words it just a regular deluxe 33……..so just because it says “hand made stock” in the letter, does this make this rifle any more valuable??  Plus its a .33………the least desirable caliber in the 86 line.

Well, you could say that it’s one of a kind, with that strange looking stock.

Anyone remember what it sold for last time?  Maybe around a year ago?

It seems to me like it is expected to sell for more than a comparable rifle with a none “hand made stock”. Even if it is one of a kind; which I’d suspect it is, I find the hand made stock less appealing than a typical stock. Nonetheless, very interesting rifle.

I once owned an ELW 45-70 Takedown Rifle that also lettered with “handmade stock”, as well as one extra inch drop and one extra inch long, if I recall correctly. It also had a Lyman 21, Lyman No 6 folding rear and Lyman front sight, plain pistol grip, HRSB, but the best part, is that it was 1 of 12 letterable ELWs with a longer 24 inch barrel. Sold it to a buddy, was always wished one I wish I woulda have kept. Maybe I forgot I keep hounding him enough, he will sell it back, lol.

I would have to agree, this buttstock on this 33 is not appealing though.

One might suspect that the stock was an early attempt at making a “Monte Carlo” stock.  Gotta start somewhere.  Wink  RDB
