I found a 1940's model 97 and had it torn down, worn parts replaced and chamber bored to handle modern ammo better. It's all getting re-blued and the takedown repaired too. Can't wait for the arrival of this into my Winchester family. Over the past three years I've been hunting down rifles to replace one's lost in a barn fire. I'll try posting pics when I get it.

Hot dang! A happy Cowboy. I have 2 97s. They are eye candy and mean to miscreants at the door.
