I have a Beautiful- Fully Engraved 45-90 86 winchester. This Rifle has a deluxe tiger maple stock and forearm. the engraving is pure art. I have no proof of the engraver.

Beautiful Rifle, it needs to be lettered though. Serious money will then be interested!

"There is an name engraved under the lever- prob. the engraver. J Ulrich".

That is a guesstimate at best. Either it is or it is not engraved by J Ulrich. If I am not mistaken, Ulrich was normally incorporated into the receiver engraving. A Cody letter would make you money!

I have a cody letter- It doesnt mention the Engraving. So it wasnt done at the factory, ive seen other ulrich signatures in the same place- but there is no way to verify it.

if you haven't sold it by Nov 11...take it to Reno. There is the big reno show, but in november its the Winchester Arms Collectors show. There will be alot of winchester experts and people with DEEEEEP pockets. Get well!

You might want to post DOM. Also contact the fine folks at winchestercollector.org and see if you can get any more info on the engraving. If itís not factory or identifiable it may actually reduce the value to serious collectors. Lots of good info over there.

Ive researched as much as I can-Theres no documentation from the factory on the Engraving or who did it infortunatly. But then again back when this was done, people werent interested in resale value or documents. and that put me in a pickle trying to sell it. might boil down to just keeping it. Sadly I just dont have the time to realy dive deep into reasearch. Im being schooled as I go. But from what Im learning is that if there isnt a photo of the guy engraving it, then there isnt adequate proof. Ill try a little longer we'll see- thanks for posting
