    That is some... um... rare engraving.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche

    So is this 'Stupid Rare' or 'Worls Clas'?

    The best way to tell the difference is, Worls Clas involves making holes smaller by removing material from them.

    I would like to buy it just so it will make my own valiant efforts at customizing firearms look good. Whenever anyone snorts at my hand-stamped serial numbers on guns that came with none, I will proudly fetch the Grenon Special and watch them faint.

    In all seriousness, I would bet that is the situation. Some young man was VERY PROUD of his rifle. [8D]

    We all did stuff like this, right? (I know I did.)

    I bought a similar bolt action .22 from Kasey years ago and did pay more in shipping and transfer than I did for the rifle. It looked a little better than that one (a lot actually) but functions fine and if I could find .22 my girls can burn through it with that old rifle.

    I would love to have a "youth" model with the short barrel to replace the one my brother had 50 some years ago but I'll have to pass.

    I have no problem with a young guy customizing his gun. Chances are it was wasted when he got it and just had a little fun and made it his own. I guess I just like home grown folk art, even on a firearm.

    If Jeffery had a passion for Redbones, heck even Blueticks, I would be all over it. But I was just never very partial to Walkers.

    Just the shipping and receiving would cost almost as much as I gave for my 67A ($55). It must have belonged to Jeffrey's brother Gordy, it has Gordy scratched into the stock, though you hardly ever notice it. Must have been the style back in the day.

    Yep, the * hounds actually look pretty good for what it is,but that deer has the "caught in the headlights" look.

    Wow. The deer! I bid heavy. If I win I'll try to find the name on social media and sell it back, after I'm done with it, of course. I used the same rifle as a kid for squirrels, rabbits, ducks, whatever.

    This was the first gun I owned, given to me when I was about 5 / 6. My Grandfather had the stock and barrel shortened and spoiled me rotten, all the ammo a person could want. It had a chromed bolt. Remember the "pull out" ?? cocking pin was kind of hard to pull for my age.

    After 1000's of rounds there wasn't a sparrow, frog or snake to be seen within a mile,, plus,, and I still feel bad about this - Meadowlarks.

    I put a zillion rounds through one of theses before I was 10 years old, never felt slightest inclination to "enhance" it's look.
    I bet it was a prize possession of a * hunter and Walker dog owner from the art work.

    I did a lot of like 30 Spanish semiautomatic pistols from an estate sale...

    About 1/2 of the grip stocks had been replaced with hardwood panels carved with the likeness of curvey rubenesque top less Spanish ladie...

    The other half had the grips stocks replaced with clear lucien panels...

    Protecting printed postcard likenesses of risqu? and daring partially exposed French gals...

    All were original and period correct (to WWII I surmise) and represented the fruits of labor of a serious collector...

    That deer face appears as though it has been gut shot few days before with that gun.

    Someone ask the seller if he has the original Winchester box and if it's ever been fired.

    He says it HAS A CUSTOM FINISH and very rare ONE OF A KIND. [:D]

    Some of them very rare ONE OF A KIND Winchesters are one of ones and had a real low serial number or no serial number.

    Like this one for example:
