I got this info off of a other forum I posted on about the Monte Walsh movie. A member replied that Selleck had 2 of the 1887 shotguns and 2 1886 SRC in 50/ 110 restored for the move at a cost of $30,000 bucks out of his own pocket to keep the movie historically accurate. I can see that as Selleck is a gun lover like the rest of us and can afford to have the restoration done. Jim

Tom Selleck is a fan of the 1886 Winchester. He owns and hunts with these fine guns, as do many other folks. Original '86 SRCs in any caliber other than 40-82, 45-70 and 45-90 are very scarce. A decent carbine in any condition, no matter what the caliber, will set you back several thousand bucks. A 50-110 in excellent condition can be priced upwards of 20K+. I was not aware of the restoration of these guns for the Monte Walsh film, either. I did watch it the other evening,though. It was pretty much the same story as the original Lee Marvin, Jack Palance movie of the same title.

After I read the article I found out he paid 30,000 total for the guns and other stuff including some saddles and such. Go to a site called Read the West.com and you can get all the info. Jim
