Recently purchased a early model 97 serial number in the 30,000 range. I ordered information from Cody. When it came back everything was as expected except one line in the middle list "Elliott" as the only thing on the line. Does anyone know what that means?

Yes… your Model 1897 should be a Trap grade gun.

Yes, he was. Winchester made a Trap Gun to his specifications (LOP, Drop at Heel and Drop at Comb).
