CDNN has them advertised for $799. I've been looking for a decent O?U with out spending my sons college fund....so anyhow how are these guns? They are in the same price range as the Ruger(correct me if Im wrong). One of the main reasons why Im looking for an alternative to a ruger is I do not PERSONALLY like all the engraving on them...IMO they look silly

Rugers are bit more expensive I think.

Engraved Rugers are a rare animal------Generally Rugers have NO engraving.

Back to the Winchester question-----they are made by FN and seem to be well made------all the examples I've seen have had butt-ugly wood for the stocks------So if you can live with plain wood---its a decent gun overall.
