Robar custom .458 Lott stopping rifle based on a BRNO/CZ ZKK-602 barreled action. From the collection of Todd Smith, serial number 21662 has a 22-inch barrel (shortened factory original) with a deeply-recessed crown, banded ramp front sight with beaded blade, banded sling swivel stud, island express (original) rear sight with one fixed and two folding leafs (marked 100/200/300), ZKK-602 action with 5+1 round capacity and integral dovetails. Robar’s tough metal finishes add the final fitting touch. The custom synthetic stock (appears to be a McMillan) features both pillar and glass bedding (from the recoil lug forward), positive texture fields, cheekpiece and a Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 9.2 pounds and length-of-pull is 13.75 inches. CONDITION: Never taken afield and little fired, the bore remains in new condition. Metal finishes stand at 98 percent, with small high spots over the chamber and a hint of operating wear on the bolt body and floorplate. The stock finish is at least 95 percent, with small high spots and scratches in the paint. Mechanics are proper and feeding is flawless in dry operation. INCLUSIONS: RCBS reloading dies, approximately 25 unprimed brass and 25 Trophy Bonded 500-grain soft point bullets. TODD SMITH is one of the fortunate few who have spent a lifetime writing about firearms and hunting, a vocation that allowed him to explore the world. He was a long-serving editor of Petersen’s Hunting as well as the editor of Guns and Ammo’s Specialty Publications at Petersen’s Publishing Company, then went on to become editor-in-chief of Outdoor Life magazine, a position he held for 14 years. By request, Mr. Smith will provide a personalized letter regarding the background and history of this firearm.
