Winchester 1873 Raffle. I\'m Back!

Remember this? The Bismarck Mandan Rifle and Pistol Association was trying to sell this very nice Winchester 1873 in 32 WCF at auction with no luck, so......

We are going to raffle it off for $10.00 a try. Only 1000 tickets sold. The engraving and antique nickle finish was done by Mark Hoechst here in Bismarck. The pictures do not do it justice. Barrel has been relined. The wood is original and looks good. The money will help fund an indoor 50 meter range that is under construction now. The range will be used for bullseye, light rifle, small bore position shooting, instructional classes, ect. We hope to be shooting in it next winter. The Associations web site is http://www.bmrpa.org I know this doesn't have much to do with long range hunting but I think it's a worthy cause. If you have questions or are interested in a ticket please let me know. I will except any type payment. Personal check, money order........
Thanks for looking!

Send funds to:

Blaine Erikson
5207 Junction Road
Bismarck ND 58503

and Ill fill out the tickets

I posted a picture of the right side of the rfle and a couple of the range under construction. It is hard to believe it is being built. I took a shot with my pellet pistol within the soon t be walls when I took the pictures. I'm first!
