    Truly Nice L61R,

    Shame, parting out the action is worth your asking price.
    I have an early L61R deluxe, grin every time I run the bolt.

    Those rings look to be hand engraved and the gunsmith had access to premium wood. Stock shaping and inletting work look more like hand cut instead of the vertical angles you see with machine cut.

    While this was pretty regular stuff/style in the 50-60’s, in the 70’s this quality/style would have been expensive and relegated to a limited number of master gunsmiths still practicing the art by hand as it is today.

    Any makers mark?
    Maybe under the stock, indicating Fred Wells?
    Just a thought as Fred's wife Rachel did some pretty fantastic engraving, it's hard to tell by your picts, but those rings look pretty unique.

    If you have a Wells, that's the big leagues.
    If you discover something interesting, please let me know.

    All the best,
    Steve
