Came across this trio today.  Amazing pieces!  An ultimate 1894 collection all by itself.

Wow. Those are beautiful.  I wonder if they were all ordered by the same person? Probably will never know.

Interesting combination. 
Id prefer the semi-deluxe if it were blued, but I wouldn’t turn it down as it sits.

That is one great trio of rifles!  And that .32 Special Cool is really nice!  

I see there is no price listed…  I guess if you have to ask… you can’t afford it.

I just saw Russ at the Cheyenne show last weekend. He didn’t have those on his table, but as always, he came through with some fine ’86’s.

Beautiful and rare trio. Russ handles some very interesting Winchesters. 

A few years ago at Reno he had a super nice 1886 that was owned by Tom Selleck. Actually had his name on the Cody letter. 

If memory serves it had even been in one of his movies “Monte Walsh” I believe. I really wanted that one, but just couldn’t make myself grab it. 

I’ve heard that it’s typical for him to carry his collection guns in movies as opposed to props.

Nice hat trick, I’d be happy to make room in my safe for all three. 

I believe you’re right, Kevin. Selleck risked being upstaged by his props in at least a few movies, Monte Walsh, Quigley and Crossfire Trail, to name a few. Of course Bert would be disappointed if I didn’t mention the Jesse Stone series co-starring a rather plain but quite adequate Guvmint Model Colt. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that well-worn Colt is one of his personal carry guns.
