RGS National Raffle Features Unique Winchester Model 21
Coraopolis, PA —-(AmmoLand.com)- In what one sportsman described as better odds than his state lottery, the Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS) is limiting the number of sold tickets for its 2009-2010 national fundraiser gun raffle to 1,500.
And this isn’t a plain ordinary field gun! Valued at $32,000, this year’s prize is a “Baby Frame” Model 21 28 gauge side by side made by Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Co. in the Winchester tradition.
This one-of-a-kind shotgun features 28-inch barrels choked IC/M with two beads, a straight English stock crafted from fancy AAA feathercrotch walnut to a checkered butt and a 14 1/2-inch LOP. The beavertail fore-end has an ebony insert in the tip. It has a single selective trigger and the RGS logo is hand-engraved in real gold on the bottom of the receiver.
Donation for each ticket is $100 and can be purchased from RGS by calling 1-888-564-6747 and speaking with Rudy between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST. The drawing will be held at RGS headquarters on June 30, 2010.
Established in 1961, the Ruffed Grouse Society is the one international wildlife conservation organization dedicated to promoting conditions suitable for ruffed grouse, American woodcock and related wildlife to sustain our sport hunting tradition and outdoor heritage.
