Biesen custom Winchester pre-64 Model 70 Featherweight .270 Winchester Jack O’Connor tribute, completed in 2006, engraved, pristine

Imagined in 2002, commissioned in 2004 and raffled in 2006; this one-of-a-kind custom rifle is the result of superb cooperation between the O’Connor family, the Jack O’Connor Hunting Heritage and Education Center and the Idaho Chapter of FNAWS. Donated to the Boone and Crockett Club by the raffle winner, it is presented through the Club’s Guns For Conservation Program.

Those who are familiar with O’Connor’s writings will remember that Al Biesen stocked and customized two nearly-identical Winchester pre-64 Model 70 Featherweight .270 Winchester rifles for the legendary writer. As O’Connor wrote in Sheep and Sheep Hunting (Winchester Press, 1974), The No. 2 rifle is my particular pet. Month after month, year after year, in sunshine and in rain it puts its favorite load with the 130-grain Nosler bullet into a little group three inches high at a hundred yards.” The Biesen / O’Connor rifle offered here is a faithful reproduction of “No 2”. As it should be, the original is owned by the O’Connor family and destined to forever remain in their care.

Built by Al & Roger Biesen, the Model 70 Featherweight barreled action is flawlessly stocked in French walnut, graced with a fine borderless 24 lines-per-inch checkering accented with fleurs and finished with an ebony forend tip. Additional features include a jeweled bolt body, extractor and follower, two-panel checkered bolt knob, recontoured and checkered bolt release and a recontoured (cloverleaf) tang. The stock itself is dressed out with a steel bottom metal and grip cap, initial shield on the toe line (blank), cheek piece with shadow line and a Biesen trapdoor butt plate with widow’s peak.

ENGRAVING: Engraved by Paula Biesen-Malicki (Roger’s daughter), the bottom metal is accented with delicate scroll. The steel grip cap continues the theme, surrounding a bust of one Jack’s finest Coues’ deer. The butt plate is nothing short of spectacular, as it presents the bust of O’Connor’s 44-inch Dall’s ram taken in 1950 on Pilot Mountain in the Yukon Territory.

SCOPE: In order to create as exact a duplicate as possible, a Leupold Mountaineer 4x scope with a “straight crosshair” reticle rides in favored Tilden mounts. The only aspect of the rifle not in perfect condition, it retains some 95 percent of the original finish.

DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.8 pounds, length-of-pull is 13.5 inches and the balance point is two inches behind the forward guard screw.

CONDITION: New and unfired since completion.

INCLUSIONS: As assembled by the raffle winner and donor, a three-ring notebook approximately one-inch thick contains original and copied correspondence between the O’Connor family members, O’Connor biographer Eldon “Buck” Buckner, FNAWS, Roger Biesen, Wolfe Publishing (Rifle Magazine), a final draft of Craig Boddington’s August, 2005  Gunnotes column on the rifle, original promotional flyers and a raffle ticket stub. Original and copied photos include the Biesen’s with the rifle in progress as well as finished, along with a pair of O’Connor’s field photos with trophy rams. Finally, a single live Winchester Super Speed .270 round is included. Some would say it to be worth more than the rifle itself. The price is firm and layaway is available. $20,000 plus shipping. Proceeds benefit the Boone and Crockett Club.

Griffin & Howe .375 H&H Magnum, true magnum Mauser action, drop box, quarter rib, AAA English, nine pounds

Griffin & Howe .375 H&H Magnum built on a magnum Mauser. A stunning dangerous game rifle with superb appointments, the 24-inch barrel has a matted ramp front sight with brass bead, gracefully banded sling swivel stud and a matted quarter rib with one standing and two folding leafs regulated for 100/200/300 yards. The action is a true magnum Mauser (9.25-inches long) with single square bridge, integral bases with sighting notch (to clear open sights), sculpted drop box bottom metal (four plus one capacity) with inside-the-bow release button, two-position knurled wing safety, jeweled bolt body and follower, checkered (two panels) bolt knob and a finely-checkered trigger shoe. The stock is fashioned from an exhibition grade English walnut blank shot through with dark ribbons. Accents include an ebony forend tip, wrap-around 24 lines-per-inch checkering with double border, English (pancake) cheekpiece with wrapping shadow line, leather-wrapped recoil pad, steel grip cap and inletted pedestal sling swivel stud. Additional accenting touches include niter blued bolt release lever and screws. The extractor face has been tapered to “snap over” a round dropped into the chamber. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 9.0 pounds and length of pull is 13.8 inches. Drops are 1.5 and 1.75 inches from the top of the integral bases. MARKINGS: “No. 745 Griffin & Howe, Inc. New York” on rib, “.375 Magnum” on chamber left, “105306” behind the barrel lug, “73688” and what appears to be “E3B” on the underside of the barrel, and either “L87” or “187” on both the underside of the barrel and front ring. IMPORT MARKINGS: A tiny “BV LINDEN WA USA” shows on the underside of the barrel just ahead of the forend tip and “114” appears on the lower right front ring, suggesting it was imported from Canada. HISTORY: Per the Griffin & Howe historian, no records exist. CONDITION: It appears this rifle was completely refurbished by Griffin & Howe at some point. Careful examination of the action (inside) indicates the presence of filled side mount attachment points. The bore is virtually new, which combined with the slender contour suggests it was replaced using the original sights and banded stud. Metal finish is about 99 percent, with only slight indications of use. Wood finish is 99 percent as well, while wood integrity is about 98 percent due to a scattering of minor scuffs and field impressions. $10,000 plus shipping.

Hoffman Arms custom Springfield .30-06, game scene engraved, sleek stock lines, horn tip, great bore

Hoffman Arms custom Springfield .30-06. From the storied firm in Ardmore, Oklahoma, this classic American sporter wears a 24-inch barrel with a banded front sight ramp topped by a brass-beaded blade. Although reprofiled, the barrel is original as the date stamp is partially visible on either side of the ramp (the left number being a “5” and the right being a “2”). The action itself has received minimal modifications (markings polished, carefully smoothed raceway, extractor and bolt body jeweled, Lyman aperture rear sight added, trigger face serrated with a checkered tip). The bottom metal has been replaced but the rear of the follower has not been beveled and the two-stage trigger mechanism remains in service. No serial number is present either above or below the wood line. STOCK: Fashioned from a walnut blank with strong lines and understated figure, the overall stock profile is wonderfully slim. The forend tip is horn. Fine borderless checkering with accent points wraps the forearm and bookends the grip shoulders in graceful panels. The slim, open pistol grip is capped with steel and the comb line is all but straight. The stock itself incorporates metal bedding pillars and wears an oil finish. The recoil pad was upgraded at some point in the not too distant past.  ENGRAVING: Sans attribution, the engraving is exceptional. The floor plate anchors the theme with a calling bull moose standing in profile against a forested background which is in turn vertically framed by fields of leafy vines with scroll and fleur accents. The pattern extends over the balance of the bottom metal and guard, then reappears on the front ring and on either end of the barrel. Stippling accents integrate on the front right ramp as well as the top of the ring and over the chamber. The grip cap also wears full coverage and the bolt knob is dressed with a horizontal band of fine checkering. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.2 pounds and the length-of-pull is 13.65 inches. CONDITION: The bore is bright, not roughed, and has strong rifling. The action is solid and mechanics proper. At least a partial professional restoration seems likely (given the slight softening of the Hoffman legend engraved in the barrel). Metal finish now stands at approximately 85 percent with only minor instances of roughness showing under the finish. Engraving remains sharp. Jeweling over the extractor and bolt body has softened. Checkering is likely recut and the stock oiled. The price is firm and layaway is available. $8,750 plus shipping.

Super Express Rifle” as well as “Nitro Proved” shows at the shank. “SANS-NOM TACOMA WA” appears under the wood on the front ring. ENGRAVING: .240 APEX CAL.” tops the front scope ring and “No. 49” the rear scope ring, “SAFE” appears in gold and “49” graces the guard. Both the takedown, guard and butt plate screws are timed and enhanced with scroll. OPTIC: A new Swarovski Z3 3-9×36 with plex reticle is included. DIMENSIONS: Weight (scoped) is 8.4 pounds. Length of pull is 14.15 inches. CONDITION: The bore is extraordinary – mirror bright and nearly pristine. Metal finish appears to be original and stands at approximately 70%, although most of the bottom metal coverage has thinned and silvered. Wood finish has tinned, with possible additions of oil.

Extraordinary Makinson & Son .600 Nitro Express, 1,100 hours of engraving by Adone Pozzobon, serial 600, 900-grain, one of the finest double rifles extant

As is sometimes the case with unique and valuable firearms, a degree of speculation and unintended misinformation has become associated with this rifle. The historical and background information presented here was gleaned from direct interviews with Mr. Nick Makinson and Mr. Adone Pozzobon. 

Crafted over a 15-year period by N.J. Makinson & Son, this spectacular .600 Nitro Express is the only rifle of this caliber Makinson ever produced and one of approximately 30 firearms which comprise their total output. Not intended for sale, it was concepted and created to showcase the extraordinary level of craftsmanship and detail a client might expect from a firm founded to provide bespoke firearms which equal or best those from the storied houses of London. The rifle was owned by the company’s financial principal, Mr. Milan Babiar, until approximately the time of his passing. Fittingly serialed “600”, it features 26-inch barrels (sourced from Ferlach as unfinished tubes), each with a finished muzzle diameter of .865 inches. Tapered and scalloped, the front sight base rises from the rib and transitions to a broad pedestal that secures a substantial brass-beaded blade. Possibly as an intended but fleeting courtesy for an imagined gunbearer, a sling loop attachment has been fitted to the underrib, yet its counterpart was never positioned on the toe line. A drift-adjustable express rear sight large enough to chock a corporate jet rides atop an equally massive quarter rib. The action bears a London proof, appropriate in as much as it was acquired from the J.B. Phillipson Company. The pinless (or picture) locks were a special order from York & Walling. (Both Phillipson and Y&W are well-respected suppliers to the premium gun trade.) Mr. Makinson discovered the oversized matching two-piece blank at a New York firm. Sadly, the name of the craftsman who shaped and finished the stock has been lost to history. Among special appointments are extended tangs, rolled trigger guard, trap door grip cap and a blank oval on the toe line. Additional mechanical features include ejectors, automatic safety and an articulated front trigger. While the stock is graced with drop points and wonderfully-executed checkering set apart by partially Mullered borders and bearing what amounts to the perfect traditional scalloped cheek rest accented with a surrounding shadow line, it is the magic of the wood itself that staggers. Shot through with a heavy, winding figure dark to the point of being sinister, it maintains a brooding elegance through its full length.

ENGRAVING: Requiring some 1,100 hours over a period of two years until completion in 1999, the entirety of this masterwork was performed by Adone Pozzobon. In addition to creating every aspect of the elephant scenes and presenting them to Mr. Babiar for countless refinements until approval, Mr. Pozzobon quickly realized that it was necessary to craft his own engraving tools in order to produce the extraordinary detail the project demanded. By way of example, the trunks and tusks of each elephant are approximately .001 greater in relief than their heads and bodies to create depth. Likewise, the foreground vegetation, background grasses, trees and even the sky come alive via similar dimensional relief. Shadowing within each of the three game scenes was accomplished by approaching every detail down to individual blades of grass from either side with the most delicate tools, rather than with chemical shading. The sky, grasses and other portions of the scenes actually come alive as the rifle slowly rotates in hand, yet the bulls themselves remain constant in the foreground. Detail is such that it seems possible to discern the blood pulsating through the veins in each of the outstretched ears. The left lock features a grand old bull and his askari moving across the savannah, possibly at the moment the wise one begins to suspect the presence of a hunter and flares, the younger honoring. The right lock showcases another pair, the greater bull with his head high – the precise instance when a PH would hiss, “Take him! Take him now!”. The underside presents a solitary bull moving along a path as have countless of his generations before, the background in staggering relief. Each of the three scenes is surrounded with an appropriately bold floral and vine design that continues over the full length of the quarter rib, opening lever and tangs, reappears on the front sight base and in wedges over the chambers, and at full coverage over the forend furniture, safety and grip cap. Both “SAFE” and the serial “600” are presented in gold, and the engraver’s signature appears on the flat near the front trigger.

DIMENSIONS: Weight is 15.0 pounds, including a removable mercury recoil reducer secured in the stock. Length-of-pull is 14.7 inches, drops are 1.5 and 2.1 inches, and cast off is approximately .30-inch.

CONDITION: Bores are pristine and the extractors pong with alarming but necessary authority. Bluing over the barrels is about 95 percent with modest suggestions of thinning. The balance of the metal stands at approximately 98 percent with an occasional hint of tarnish, most of which is on the lower tang. The wood is also approximately 98 percent.

CASE: A fitted leather and oak takedown case with brass furniture secures the rifle. Lined in red felt, it is additionally appointed with a two-piece ebony and brass cleaning rod, snaps, oiler, striker bottle and a fitted sling loop. The lid is secured by twin leather straps and a brown canvas field cover provides the proper finishing touch. A Holland & Holland maker’s label is positioned on the inside upper lid and the top of the oiler is similarly marked. The case does not lock as the internal portion of the mechanism has been removed. Otherwise, it presents in approximately 98 percent condition.

INCLUSIONS: Kynock five-pack box with two original 900-grain solids, one original 900-grain soft and two additional rounds of softs prepared with Wenger-marked brass. A pair of photographs of the blanks prior to shaping and a  5.5-inch square Makinson table card are also present. The price is firm and layaway is available. $200,000 plus shipping.

Rigby .470 Nitro Express with extra 12 gauge barrels, engraved, scope in quick release, cased, superb condition

Rigby .470 Nitro Express with extra set of 12 gauge barrels. Serial number 381069 (matching) was made in Paso Robles. Following a successful safari, it was put aside for several years, resold and then completely refurbished to new condition by Turnbull in 2016. Plans for the new owner’s safari evaporated as the work was in process, hence the return to market. Features include ejectors (both barrel sets), mechanical safety, trapdoor grip cap, English (pancake) cheekpiece with shadow line, beavertail forends and a leather-covered recoil pad. RIFLE BARRELS: The .470 NE barrels are 26-inches long with a fiberoptic front bead. The quarter rib has a fixed blade regulated for 50 yards and a folder regulated for 100, along with a superb EAA quick-release mounting system that secures a Leupold Vari-X III 1.5-5x scope with Duplex reticle.

On the rifle barrels, “.470 NE”, regulation distances and aiming lines are in gold. The safety “S” as well as the famous adorsed Rs on the grip cap complete the inlays. DIMENSIONS.

The receiver was color cased then French grayed, and top lever done to match. CASE: An Americase with appropriate interior and the Rigby logo (both outer and inner lid) is included.

Weatherby Mark V factory custom .300 Weatherby Magnum. Made in 1967 by special order for a satisfied safari client and presented to renowned African professional hunter Harry Selby, serial number P134412 stands tall among the most important and desirable West German Weatherby rifles ever created. Basic features include a 24-inch barrel, jeweled bolt body, two-panel checkered bolt knob, rosewood forend tip and pistol grip cap with double spacers, intricate skip-line checkering pattern, Buehler mounts and a Weatherby 2-7x scope with fine crosshair reticle.

ENGRAVING: The floorplate presents initials “JHS” (for John Henry Selby – “Harry” was his nickname) in gold relief. The entirety of the action as well as the Buehler mounts wear full-coverage scroll intertwined with flowing grasses, the pattern continuing along the top of the barrel to the middle of the forend tip.

By greatest fortune, he gained the both the respect and admiration of Robert Ruark , becoming internationally famous through Ruark’s writings. Selby served as the inspiration for Ruark’s hero Peter McKenzie in Something of Value and Ruark dedicated what many believe is the finest book ever written about safari life, Horn of the Hunter, to Selby. On a personal level, Ruark was honored to become Godfather to Harry’s son, Mark Selby. The price is firm and layaway is available. $30,000 plus shipping.

Winchester Custom Shop left hand Model 70 .243 Winchester, CRF, unfired

Winchester Custom Shop left hand Model 70 .243 Winchester. Serial G151999 features a 26-inch stainless steel H-S Precision barrel with tapered target crown and .875 muzzle diameter. The stock is a right hand McMillan heavy varminter with an extra sling swivel up front for a bipod. The bolt body is jeweled. Weight is 11.2 pounds and LOP is 13.5 inches. The stock needs finish texture & paint (the consignor could never decide on color) to cover the filled right hand bolt slot, and a small impression (or flaw) on right side at inception of forend taper needs filling. It is interesting to note that this is a standard-length action with a spacer in the magazine box. CONDITION: Overall metal is 99.5%, with the slightest freckling on the front of the trigger guard (where it meets the floorplate). This caliber was never offered in production. BACKGROUND: This rifle originates from a spectacular left hand battery of eleven Winchester Custom Shop Model 70 rifles with consecutive serial numbers and controlled round feeding actions. Based on receivers taken from the original prototype run of 40 left hand actions (ten were built as test rifles and subsequently destroyed, 11 were used for this group and almost all the rest were returned to production), each of these rifles was hand-built by the USRAC Senior Design Engineer responsible for the Model 70 program in the 1990s. Himself a lefty, he created these rifles for his own use, yet never took them afield. As such, all remain in unfired condition with only light handling/storage wear. Of the eleven calibers, six were never offered in production. Almost all are in Sporter configuration, exceptions being the .243 Winchester and the .30-06 Springfield (Featherweight). This .30-06 Springfield is the first left hand Model 70 CRF rifle ever built, even among the prototypes. The purchaser will receive personalized documentation from the builder/consignor detailing the origin and history. The price is firm and layaway is available. $2,750 plus shipping.

Winchester pre-64 Model 70 serial number 1 & serial number 2

A most remarkable pairing – serial number 1 and serial number 2 Winchester pre-64 Model 70 rifles. Absent anything short of absolute certainty, each of these rifles stands among the world’s most important and valuable sporting arms. That they are paired presents an unequaled acquisition opportunity. Both rifles have a captivating history. According to Roger Rule’s The Rifleman’s Rifle, serial number 1 was marked on January 20, 1936. As Winchester records are unavailable so far as supporting a proper factory letter is concerned, the actual shipping date and destination are unknown. As detailed in Winchester Model 70 No. 1, a feature article appearing in the June, 1990 issue of American Rifleman (bound copy included), the current owner’s uncle purchased the rifle from a hardware store in Durango, Colorado during the 1937 hunting season. Whether new or used when that sale was wrung, the rifle was already fitted with a Lyman receiver sight. Upon returning from the hunting trip, the owner had the rifle drilled and tapped in order to install a 10x Fecker scope, then hunted with it for the next forty years. In 1977, after borrowing it over the course of several deer seasons, the current owner formally acquired the rifle still wearing the Fecker and with the Lyman sight in tow. Staggeringly, another ten years passed before a chance showing resulted in a dealer getting the vapors and blurting a surprisingly high offer. This sparked a curiosity which lead to the realization that his plain old Model 70 was the first of its kind. With significant reservation, the rifle was retired from hunting after 50 years of faithful and flawless service. Published in 1982 by Alliance Books, The Rifleman’s Rifle did much to expand and solidify collector interest in Winchester pre-64 Model 70 rifles. Quite naturally, the owner of the number 1 rifle acquired a copy as part of his research. Page 193 carried a photo of serial number 2 from the author’s collection, and page 52 showed a photo of a letter from Richard Pelton, Winchester’s Director of Marketing dated March 6, 1980. Written to Mrs. Ethel M. Lied, the letter mentions the January 20, 1936 marking date for the number 1 rifle and also states that assembly of Model 70 rifles did not begin until 1937. Pointedly, the letter references Mrs. Lied’s inquiries as to the value of her rifle – serial number 2. No doubt, ownership of the number 2 rifle passed to Roger Rule at approximately this time. At some point thereafter, the number 2 rifle was presented for sale at a major gun show attended by the owner of rifle number 1. As things tend to do, one lead to another and ownership of serial number 2 transferred. To no surprise, both rifles are of “standard” configuration and chambered in .30-06 Springfield. Serial number 1 condition: The bore remains smooth, strong and viable. Drilling/tapping for scope mounting includes 2x on the barrel just forward of the rear sight boss and 2x on the front ring. The rear sight is absent and the dovetail is protected with a “plug”. Overall metal finish is approximately 65 percent, as expected after 50 years of use in the hunting fields. Wood integrity is strong (absent cracks or chips). Wood finish condition is also approximately 65 percent overall and the checkering is smoothing. Finish is thinning or absent in places and a general distribution of field impressions and scratches are in evidence. The bolt body is faintly marked “1” in electric pencil (or similar). The Fecker scope is viable and remains optically clear, with surface finish of approximately 70 percent. Serial number 2 condition: The bore remains smooth, strong and viable. Drilling and tapping for scope mounting includes 2x on the front ring, with the rear ring untapped. Overall metal finish is approximately 80 percent. Wood integrity is strong (absent cracks or chips). Wood finish condition is also approximately 80 percent overall. Checkering is strong. A general distribution of field impressions and scratches are in evidence. The bolt body is faintly marked “2” in electric pencil (or similar). Inclusions: In addition to a complete bound set of American Rifleman magazines from 1990 with the referenced article, a personalized letter detailing the known history and transfer details of the rifles will be provided by the owner. Price is firm at $1,750,000, and an installment purchase may be arranged following a suitable deposit. The pair will not be separated. All transportation arrangements and associated costs are the responsibility of the purchaser.

Trio of Terry Tussey custom ultra-compact 1911 .45 ACP pistols prototyped for Kimber, unique compact .22 LR assembly, provenance, high condition

Trio of ultra-compact prototype 1911 .45 ACP pistols created by Terry Tussey for Kimber as the foundation for Kimber’s Ultra RCP II model. PISTOL 1 – Serial number KU29156 is based on an Ultra CDP II. While retaining the original (3-inch) bull barrel/sights/slide configuration, the grip has been shortened approximately .880-inch and a finger groove added for improved control. A special aluminum mainspring housing was also added and, along with the grip itself, modified to a round butt configuration. Additional custom appointments include skeletonized hammer, wide thumb safety, bobbed grip safety, thin rosewood grips with Tussey Custom logo and a unique blended magazine plate. Retained Kimber features include a stainless steel match grade bull barrel, stainless steel slide with lowered/flared ejection port, 30 lines-per-inch checkering under the trigger guard and a tuned match grade trigger. Included are two five-round magazines. Overall condition is approximately 97 percent with modest indications of handling and firing. The related highly-modified Rimfire Target .22 LR barrel/slide is shortened to 3.5 inches (from five inches). Included are four Kimber 10-round rimfire magazines, but none have been shortened or modified to operate with this pistol (Tussey single-loaded rimfire rounds during testing and never got around to modifying the lips so the slide would close). Provenance – a letter from Tussey states that both calibers are sighted in at 25 yards and includes a three-shot .45 ACP group measuring .643 center-to-center. PISTOL 2 – Serial number KU23983 is based on an Eclipse Ultra II and retains the original stainless steel slide, frame and major dimensions – other than the grip being shortened .430-inch. The sights have been removed in favor of a trough machined and blended into the top of the slide that features a recessed “shallow V” rear sight and red fiber optic front bead. Additional modifications include a recessed slide stop pin and magazine release button, slimmed slide release, bobbed hammer/thumb safety/grip safety, added aluminum mainspring housing, rounded butt and thin rosewood grips with Tussey Custom logo. Condition is approximately 97 percent with minor indications of handling and firing. One six-round magazine is included. PISTOL 3 – Serial number KU25552 is based on a Ultra CDP II with original dimensions. The original sights have been removed in favor of a sighting trough ending in an Trilux H3 night sight bead (dimmed with age). An aluminum mainspring housing has been added and the grip recontoured to round butt. Thin slant-checkered rosewood grips have also been added. One Officer’s length seven-round magazine is included. Condition is approximately 98 percent with only faint indications of handling. The price is firm, layaway is available and the group will not be separated. $10,000 plus shipping.

A lively little 28 gauge worthy of the moniker, she wears 26-inch barrels with a single brass bead heading a swamped rib, M/F fixed chokes and ejectors. The action (Birmingham proofed) is a boxlock with two sets of side plates and a mechanical safety. Barrels (marked “Made In England” on the forend attachment lug) are finished in polished blue while the action, plate sets, forend furniture, opening lever, safety, tang and the scalloped heel/toe clips are a complimentary combination of color case and blue. All the screws are timed. Stocked from a perfectly-matched walnut blank set showcasing superb and consistent figure, the splinter as well as the straight butt wear 26 lines-per-inch wrap checkering with Mullered borders and additionally feature a checkered butt along with a deep hand-rubbed oil finish. ENGRAVING: The action, forend furniture, opening lever, guard, tangs and clips showcase Forte’s spectacular bordered rose and scroll to virtually full coverage. PRIMARY SIDEPLATES: The left plate is dressed with a brace of quail in flight, the right a flushing grouse and a rising woodcock graces the guard – each bird formed from gold. AUXILIARY SIDEPLATES: Numbered to the gun and bearing the initials “GF”, this set presents detailed rose bouquets surrounded by scroll and accenting borders. MARKINGS: “John F. Rowe Gunmaker No. 2” rides the rib while “Eng. By – Guiseppe Forte” hides on the underrib beneath the splinter. The initial plate set in the toe line remains blank. DIMENSIONS: Weight is just 5.8 pounds. Length-of-pull is 15.0 inches, drops are 1.5 and 2.5 inches, and cast off is approximately .25-inch. CONDITION: Seldom fired if at all, condition is at least 99 percent with minor indications of handling and storage impressions. HUEY CASE: Numbered “391”, the oak and leather masterpiece features a three-inch brass oval top plate engraved with a pair of quail rising from cover. The brass oiler is also engraved with a superb bordered rose. Both top plate and bottle are unsigned. Also included are two ebony-handled turnscrews, an ebony and brass chamber brush, brass snaps, two-piece ebony and brass cleaning rod, an extra set of sideplate screws with engraved heads and two keys. The case remains in very good condition, with some external wear and a bit of internal loosening (fabric points and cleaning rod retaining bar). CASE LABEL: The makers label on the upper lid reads “Quail Unlimited, The Ultimate Quail Gun, John F. Rowe – Gunmaker and Guiseppe Forte – Engraver”. The price is firm and layaway is available. Partial trade for a sub-gauge double will be considered. $20,000 plus shipping.
