Re: Looking at a Model 81, number hand etched on top?

I figured as much :D

Not that the base level is a super rare bird, but does the etching hurt the value much?

Looking at a Model 81, number hand etched on top?

Hi all!

The rifle is in great shape, is the base model 81 in .35.

On top of the receiver, there is a number scratched in, which is "#28" (written with the number symbol before the 28).

Any ideas? Was this possibly a police used rifle with a catalog number?
