Interesting Cabelas Find

Found this on the used gun rack at Cabelas yesterday. Looks like a special build from 1985 for the Delta Upsilon Fraternity at the U. of Michigan as near as I can figure out. They must enjoy a Budweiser now and then. It's in like new condition with select wood and was priced very right. Any ideas on identifying this rifle?

Don't have RENE with me but guessing It's not a factory thing. Ducks Unlimited perhaps but the logo though.

I'm going to guess it's actually for Ducks Unlimited. Check out item # 106 at this auction list: Stanton's Auctioneers and Realtors - upcoming auctions

Upsilon is not a Greek letter, Epsilon is, however.

My guess is it was Ducks Unlimited, not official however, but a personal engraving job.

I just noticed they had some firearms related stuff on You Tube so thought D.U. may have stood for Delta Upsilon. But Ducks Unlimited sounds more plausible.

Upsilon in the Greek alphabet corresponds with the letter Y in the latin alphabet.

I'd just be happy with a Budweiser gun though.
