Winchester One of a Thousand
30-30 and .22lr matched set … just saw it a few hrs ago.




Took my son this AM and reminded him he’s likely to never see this again.

It’s really the only time I’ve ever liked gold on a gun.

Beautiful wood patterns on both rifles.

There are a couple of guns with gold on them in the Winchester collection at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.

They do have nice wood. I would prefer case hardened receivers, but they are handsome rifles.

Agreed - I think a nice phosphates “blue” would look better.

I will go check and see what they ultimately sold for.

Wow… Sold for $5500 +23% uplift (auction fees +10% taxes)

I thought it would’ve gone for 10 to 12 all day
