I'm not sure if "Factory Custom" is the correct phrase for this gun, but I thought it was an interesting link none-the-less. MR_TW from the forum here sent this to me. It's a gorgeous highwall with all sorts of bells and whistles. If anyone can give me more information on this gun (in particular the scope), I would be interested to hear it (no I'm not buying it) but I'm just posting it here for others' interest sake.

I think you are speaking of the Winchester Model 1885 Scheutzen Rifle. I am fortunate to own one that letters with cody built in 1907. These guns still hold records for off hand shooting at 200 yards. Several of them just sold at an Amoskeag auction without any engraving and were bringing around $12,500. What a great piece of history.

Here is my 38-55 with #4 barrel, nickle helm plate, wingauge front sight, vernier tang sight, set trigger, handlebar palm rest, and scheutzen stock.

Here was the auction:

Steady, gun is so heavy not much recoil. Alot of these factory Scheutzens, this one included, have a "cast off" to help align the eye with the sights.
