Bill - I think Galazan's still has rights to operate as the official Winchester Custom Shop, so M-21 alterations they do are sent to Cody and added to the gun's official records. Jay

I wonder who is doing the engraving for Galazan's these days. Maybe Pauline Muerrle? Now if you want your 21 engraved, I know you can still send it to her, eightbore. She was the last "in house" engraver for Winchester.

Presently, Cabela's is selling (trying to sell?) a 38,000 SN gun advertised as a "Factory Custom Shop" gun. Rib says "Custom Built Winchester". Maybe they are unclear about what they have also

I hope anyone who goes into a store as big as a Walmart knows his intended purchase better than the clerk or department manager. It really doesn't bother me that a Cabela's ad writer doesn't know what he is selling. Sometimes it's a bit of an advantage.

I have found that most of Cabela's on line gun discriptions are not accurate and that most of their gun "salesman" don't know what the hell they are talking about. The spread so much misinformation about guns that it should be a crime!

Agree about Cabela's. Went into their Dundee store several weeks ago with a pair of clean, pre-64 M70's - one a .220 Swift. The head guy on the floor sniffed, and said the it had been reblued. Apparently didn't understand that Winchester put stainless barrels on that caliber. Wasn't worth his time or mine to try to educate him. Sold the guns elsewhere

"
Serial # is W38005 and is marked like Custom Shop guns without barrel markings. Rib would identify it as a USRAC gun but it has no Winchester marking on the action flats so its a toss whether whether USRAC made it or Tony from parts although based on the wood, I would say that it is a USRAC gun. Wonder what a Cody letter would say.
In any event a nice model 21!-Dick

If the Serial # is 38000 or more, it is a Galazan gun. Cabela's gun people are dumb as dirt!
