This rifle is #143 of 650 special rifles made for the NRA by Reinhart Fajen, the stock-making company, in 1997. It is built on the pre-64 CRF Classic Model 70 action. Winchester supplied 650 barreled actions "in the white" to Fajen, who then hand-polished them to a custom-shop level, applied a deep blue-black finish, had decorative gold enhancements applied to the receiver, muzzle, pistol grip and floorplate, and stocked them in an AA grade American Black Walnut stock. The forend and grip caps are of contrasting Burl Walnut.
This series is known as the Friends of the NRA special edition. They are all chambered in 30-06, true to the history of The Rifleman's Rifle, and are quite elegant.
Cabelas has 2 used examples of this edition for $1,800 and $2,300. This one is NIB with all the accompanying literature, as well as an original copy of the 1997 NRA pamphlet describing the rifle.
An investment piece that you can hunt with, and will be sure to increase in value.
