Griffin & Howe .257 Roberts on a much-refined Winchester Model 54 barreled action.

A banded sling swivel stud has been added and the rear sight boss dovetail is capped. The action has been improved to cock-on-open and a color case safety lever clears the scope. A Griffin & Howe side mount and a Lyman receiver sight (missing aperture) have been added. Additional metal appointments include a deep rust blue finish along with jeweling on the bolt body, extractor, follower and rail. The stock has been shaped from a dense walnut blank with bold grain. Accents include a horn forend tip, 24 lines-per-inch wrap-around bordered checkering, capped pistol grip, English cheekpiece with shadow line, sling swivel stud and a metal butt plate featuring a widow’s peak and border engraving.
