    Can someone identify the model of this 101 Winchester. Looking to buy a replacement stock but do not know the specific model. This stock fits me perfectly and wanted the same type. Thanks

    Why not just refinish this one? Doesn't look to be very damaged unless there's a big crack not pictured? Refinishing would be cheaper for sure. Zach

    That looks like the Pigeon Grade from the late 70's and the 80's.

    They characteristically had very nice looking dark wood.

    They also liked to crack at the wrist.

    It was purchased new in the late 70's and the stock had been severely broken at the front ( split it ) and glued back together . The previous owner also filed on the comb as well.

    Contact Chris Showler at Double Eagle Trading, LLC

    The telephone number is 1-775-882-9739.

    He's forgotten more about 101s than most guys have ever learned.

    It appears to be a 101 XTR, not a pigeon Grade. The pigeon grade had checkering on both sided of the stock where it meets the receiver. The XYR's were the last of the 101's made. Bob

    In the 101 Silver Anniversary catalog it is called the lightweight field. The pigeon grades had a silver color trigger guard, top lever and the forend iron. Definitely talk with Chris Showler because he has quite a few stocks. Nuline may also have some stocks.

    Yes, it appears to be a lightweight field and not the Pigeon lightweight. Midwest did carry these at one time.
