No History on it. It just showed up at a local gunshop and they sold it at normal price around $500 or so. (Correction, it cost $800 about 10 years ago.)

Beautiful wood… easily worth the $500 all by itself.

Not my kind of gun, but at $500 it is surely worth that.

Not normally my kind of gun either but I would make an exception in this case.  Beautiful!

USRACO made quite a few high grain deluxe stocks for the commeratives they would churn out. I think someone got a hold of the leftover stock of “stocks” when they went under and was selling for a while online. Then again also a customer still could of ordered it with such stocks. But I do wonder if the wood has been merely swapped out. 

With the way inflation is going, we won’t even be able to buy a case of cartridges for what that gun cost. Even though it a newer gun, you can’t beat the price. Would almost make me wonder if it was “hot” or not?

I saw a guy once walk right into the Tulsa gun show with a high condition Model 66 asking $3,500 for it. It was so hot it would’ve burned your hands if you went near it. 

Sincerely,

Maverick

I looked up in my records I had paid $800 for it about 10 years ago. It is not “Hot” as someone suggested, my state checks every gun by serial number against the national data base when it is bought or sold. I also agree with the theory that the wood was added later. No proof but it just seems to be way too good for a plain gun coming down the assemble line. Question, does any one know a source for such figured wood? Where does one get it? Most factory commemorative stocks have emblems added, this one does not.
