Winchester never offered checkering on the Model 61 as a either a standard feature or as a factory option. I suppose a Custom Shop Special Order was always a possibiliy - but that should "letter".

ALL Winchester "Deluxe" models, of whatever ilk, never went out the door w/o a pistol grip cap.

As .30-30remchester said: " Checkering tools were cheap and there are plenty of talented people out there."

It might even have been a Winchester factory worker (checkering dept), doing a litle "homework".
