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

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.
