Biesen / O’Connor custom Winchester Model 70 Featherweight .270 Win., 2006 FNAWS & O’Connor Center raffle rifle, spectacular engraving, unfired

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. Recently donated to the Boone and Crockett Club by the raffle winner, it is presented to the market through the Club’s Guns For Conservation Program. Proceeds from the sale will be directed to the Boone and Crockett Club Foundation and benefit wildlife conservation efforts in perpetuity.

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 and 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.

Thomas Bland & Sons cape gun in .303 British & 20 gauge, scalloped boxlock ejector, express sights

Thomas Bland & Sons cape gun in .303 British and 20 gauge. A scalloped boxlock ejector, serial 15677 has 26-inch barrels with an integral raised and matted rib ending with a dovetail-mounted bead up front and doll’s head extension at the action. A sling loop on an elongated oval base is positioned on the underside of the rib as well. The rear sight is something special, as it incorporates three folding express leafs as well as a folding ladder. All four leafs have silver-filled sighting lines, but some of the silver has gone missing over time. The first leaf is marked “100 / 200”, the second “300 / 50 yds. round ball” and the third “400”. The ladder is marked “303” and “Shot From Cordite”, with distance markings from 500 to 1,000 yards. The action itself has side clips, bushed strikers, twin triggers and an automatic safety. The stock features a steel butt plate with widow’s peak and trap door. MARKINGS: “Thomas Bland & Sons. 450. West Strand. London” and “Winners of the 1885 American Rifle Trials” appear separately on the rib. The toe line oval bears the initials “WPI”. Modest engraving outline accents grace the lines of the receiver, opening lever, guard and tangs. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.8 pounds. Length-of-pull is 14.3 inches, drops are 1.5 and 2.5 inches, and cast off is approximately .5-inch. CONDITION: Barrels are tight on face. As refurbished, barrel (rust) blue is about 97%, with soft but viable markings. Colors on the action, guard, tangs and butt plate are bright, about 90 percent. Overall metal condition is strong, with only modest evidence of roughness surviving the polish. Brand markings are viable. Serial number on the lower tang is soft. Opening lever closes dead center. Ejectors, safety and triggers operate properly in dry cycling. Wood appears to be original, with refreshed checkering and quality finish showing at no less than 90 percent. RIFLE BARREL CONDITION: The bore exhibits enough softening to the rifling and roughness in the grooves to suggest it is nearing the end of its useful life. It does, however, appear viable, and condition may improve on the heels of a through cleaning. SHOTGUN BARREL DIMENSIONS / CONDITION: Absent choke with the chamber lengthened to 3-inches, the bore remains bright with a trace of light and uniform roughness. The price is firm and layaway is available. $5,000 plus shipping.

Custom Ruger Model 77 .35-284 attributed to Lenard Brownell, McGowen barrel, island rear with folder, strong crossing grain, exceptional stock layout and checkering

Ruger Model 77 in .35-284. An unsigned custom logically attributed to Lenard Brownell by the donor, the action serialed 74-64998 was made in late 1979. (Brownell passed in 1982.) Most certainly, design characteristics including the profile of the Schnabel, the cheekpiece and its shadow line and aspects of the checkering pattern are strongly suggestive of Brownell’s hand. Features include a 22-inch McGowen barrel, hooded front ramp with Lyman blade and what appears to be an ivory bead, banded sling swivel stud, island rear sight with one fixed and one folding leaf (appears green) recontoured tang and custom tang safety.

In addition to the graceful Schnabel forend tip and heavy crossing grain, the stock is finished with fine borderless wrap-around 26 lines-per-inch checkering, bottom metal pedestal and a sculpted pistol grip. DIMENSIONS: Weight (with optic) is 7.8 pounds and length-of-pull is 14.25 inches. CONDITION: Bore is bright, as the rifle is essentially unused.

Barrels are rust blue and actions are finished in an accented coin. Triggers, forend releases and some pins are niter blue. As these rifles were imported by Midwest Gun Sport of Ellisville, Missouri, it is nearly certain both were finished in the 1980s. Engraver J. Vielvoye’s signature shows under the trigger guards.

Additional gold accents include a heavy wire collar at the barrel bases, sighting lines on the leaves, an “S” just ahead of the tang safety, and gold-plated strikers, internals and some pins. Stocked in heavily-marbled Turkish walnut, it remains in virtually new condition save modest evidence of careful handling. SERIAL 11280 – .470 Nitro Express.

CONDITION: Even after hunting much of Canada, the western United States and Zimbabwe, the rifle remains in high condition.

The recoil pad, a Pachmayr Decelerator, is a replacement. The bore is strong and bright. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 9.8 pounds with scope and length-of-pull is 14.0 inches.

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.

Hoenig custom Winchester Model 52C .22 LR, full stock, unique Hoenig features, 99 percent, from the estate of Tom Siatos

A spectacular Winchester Model 52C .22 LR full-stock sporter by George Hoenig from the estate of Tom Siatos. Based on action serial 86558C and showcasing Hoenig’s mastery of all things metal, this rifle is fitted with an 18-inch custom light sporter barrel topped by a serrated ramp front sight (with folding hood and removable blade) and an elevation-adjustable rear sight blade with serrated face marked 50/100 (the installed front sight blade is regulated for 50 yards while an additional blade stowed under the trap door in the grip cap is regulated for 100 yards). The action sports a set of Hoenig’s superb “quick detaching” rings (modified Redfields that slide rearward in the dovetail and over the opened bolt when locking screws are loosened, then return to zero when replaced and the screws tightened). The action itself is honed to perfection and the Micro-Motion trigger breaks with but a casual thought. While easily overlooked, the bottom metal has been rounded just so to match the contour of the stock. All metal surfaces wear the only suitable finish, a deep rust blue. STOCK: The full stock has been carefully shaped from what appears to be a blank of AAA-grade Turkish walnut, rich lateral and crossing grains running its full length. Forend checkering takes form as a generous full-wrap point pattern and repeats over the grip with such precision that alignment of the points and tip of the comb suggests divine intervention. The cheek rest is a proper English pancake, its lower edge thoughtfully softened. Meant to be used, the stock is fitted with a front loop (1-inch) and rounded rear swivel stud. It is worth mentioning that inletting is flawless. MARKINGS: “G. HOENIG BOISE, ID.” is centered on the barrel. “GH” appears on the left side of the rear sight base as well as the rear bridge. DIMENSIONS: Weight (with scope) is 7.4 pounds and length-of-pull is 13.6 inches over a Pachmayr Old English pad. OPTIC: Leupold 4x Rimfire Special with Fine Duplex reticle. CONDITION: The bore is pristine. Much admired and little used, overall finish is at least 99 percent with minimal indications of handling. Optics are clear. The price is firm and layaway is available. Photo package by request (include direct email address). TOM SIATOS (1923-2008) spent the majority of his life in close association with firearms and hunting. His professional contributions, tremendous category knowledge, bottomless enthusiasm and bold personality influenced the firearms industry and outdoor media to such a degree that it remains a viable force today. Tom was the second editor of Guns & Ammo Magazine. As such, he was responsible for the general tone of the iconic publication. A consummate hunter, spectacular all-around shot and true connoisseur of fine firearms, his interests spanned the full spectrum of the shooting sports. In 1942, Tom enlisted in the Marine Corps. He served in units that scouted and destroyed isolated enemy communication sites on a number of Pacific islands, eventually receiving a battlefield commission. After concluding his service, he attended UCLA and later joined the fledgling Petersen’s Publishing Company in 1958. A series of promotions led to him to become vice president of the Petersen’s Publishing Outdoor Division, which thrived under his leadership. Tom Siatos was a mentor, visionary, leader, father figure and a true original. We will never see his like again.

Hoenig custom Winchester pre-64 Model 70 .30-06, AAA English, leather wrapped pad, from the estate of Tom Siatos

Winchester Model 70 .30-06 stocked and refined by George Hoenig. From the Tom Siatos estate and based on a refined barreled action (serial 33959 made in 1941) this is the literal definition of a classic American custom rifle. The metal has a superb rust blue finish and remains almost entirely original, the exception being a careful rounding of the bottom metal to blend with the contour of the stock. The metal grip cap is engraved “G. HOENIG BOISE ID”. The stock is shaped from an elegant blank of AAA-grade English walnut to the contour of a proper mountain rifle. The open grip, at least for an American custom rifle, is ahead of its time. Being a Hoenig, the 26 lines-per-inch wrap bordered checkering is wonderfully executed and perfectly compliments. Additional appointments include an English cheek with softened edge and a leather-wrapped recoil pad. DIMENSIONS: Weight (with mount) is 8.4 pounds and length-of-pull is 13.6 inches. CONDITION: The bore shines like grandpa’s bald head in the sun. Metal and wood finishes are about 98 percent. Wood integrity is about 97 percent owing to a scattering of field impressions.

Omega III .30-06, Koon / Flower Mound, serial 546, rotary magazine, two-piece laminated wood stock, Conetrol rings & bases

Omega III .30-06 by the Omega Rifle Company of Flower Mound, Texas, marked “By H. Koon”. As are all Omega rifles, serial number 546 is highly interesting from a design standpoint and a bit quirky to operate. It features a 24-inch plain sporter barrel, two-piece laminated wood stock with rosewood forend tip and pistol grip cap, solid action with rotary magazine, square bolt head (for short 45-degree bolt lift), jeweled bolt body, checkered bolt knob, crossbolt safety behind trigger guard and an Omega III-marked Pachmayr recoil pad. The cheekpiece and comb seem to be Weatherby-inspired, certainly logical given the production time of approximately 1970. Conetrol bases and medium 30mm rings are also included. CONDITION: The laminated stock is cracked at the rear attach screw and repaired. Given that it appears to be covered by the original finish, it probably originated from the factory in that condition! Bore is strong and bright with sharp rifling. Barrel blue is 97 percent with minor indications of wear. The solid receiver is a uniform and attractive plum and stands at about 99 percent. Bolt handle (silver) has thinned to about 80 percent. Stock finish and integrity are about 98 percent. QUIRKS: Feeding is unusual. When operating the bolt, upward pressure must be placed on the bolt handle (forcing the bolt face down) when beginning the forward stroke in order to pick up a cartridge from the fixed rotary magazine. Lock time seems incredibly fast (in dry operation), as the firing pin is said to only travel about .20 inch. Some suggest Omega III rifles are worth low thousands and others speculate much more – but it is certain that not many examples are available. It seems to be generally accepted that total production was in the high hundreds of units. John Wayne owned one, as did Big Jim Connelly (his was sold at his bankruptcy auction long ago). DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.6 pounds and length-of-pull is 13.4 inches. The price is firm and layaway is available. $1,850 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. A swivel stud (removable) is also present. SHOTGUN BARRELS: The 12 gauge barrels are 28 inches long with a fiberoptic front sight bead. Chambers are 3 inches long and chokes are C/IC. ENGRAVING: Signed by B. Burgess under the guard, the boxlock receiver wears a bold scroll to 80% coverage, the maker’s name centered in a banner crossing the bottom. The pattern extends the length of the opening lever, continues along the tangs and repeats on the grip cap as well as both sets of forend furniture. “John Rigby & Co., Paso Robles, CA” appears in gold script on both barrel sets. 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. Length of pull is 15.2 inches. Weight with rifle barrels (scoped) is 13.4 pounds, while the shotgun is just 7.7 pounds. Drops are 1.6 and 1.9 inches, while cast (off) is approximately .4 inches. CONDITION: Nearly new, including both bores. Wood has several minor impressions and minor finish chips where the butt joins the right side of the receiver. RESTORATION DETAILS: Undertaken primarily to remove the original owner’s initials, things got carried away to the tune of nearly $9,000. Both barrel sets were polished and rust blued. 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. Interior is a bit worn and honestly needs to be refitted to more properly protect the contents. The price is firm and a layaway program is available. $32,500 plus shipping.

Tom was the second editor of Guns & Ammo Magazine. As such, he was responsible for the general tone of the iconic publication. A consummate hunter, spectacular all-around shot and true connoisseur of fine firearms, his interests spanned the full spectrum of the shooting sports. In 1942, Tom enlisted in the Marine Corps. He served in units that scouted and destroyed isolated enemy communication sites on a number of Pacific islands, eventually receiving a battlefield commission. After concluding his service, he attended UCLA and later joined the fledgling Petersen’s Publishing Company in 1958. A series of promotions led to him to become vice president of the Petersen’s Publishing Outdoor Division, which thrived under his leadership.

Weatherby .378 Weatherby Magnum, very early rifle on Schultz & Larsen action, possibly unfired

Weatherby .378 Weatherby Magnum on Schultz & Larsen M54J rear-locking four-lug action. This wonderful early Weatherby, serial number 2387, was built during the time when Roy Weatherby depended on a variety of subcontractors to provide him with rifles. From 1955 until the early 1960s, the Danish firm of Schultz & Larsen was favored for this particular caliber – and few of these examples are likely to remain in this high condition. Features include a 26-inch barrel, rosewood forend tip and grip cap (with diamond inlay), Pachmayr recoil pad with the legend “Weatherby’s, Tomorrow’s Rifles Today, South Gate, California”, and bases. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.6 pounds and length-of-pull is 14 inches. CONDITION: Possibly unfired, and the bore is pristine. Both polished blue and wood finish are nearly 100%. A hairline crack on the left side of the stock begins at the forend tip and extends for about three inches. Careful examination under magnification suggests this happened during the manufacturing process and was stabilized prior to the original finish being added. The price is firm and a layaway program is available. $3,000.

Westley Richards .375 H&H Magnum, 7.2 pounds, engraved, folding aperture, pop-up night sight

Westley Richards .375 H&H Magnum (.375 Belted Rimless), serial number 42787. Built on a Mauser 98 action, this wonderful London rifle weighs just 7.2 pounds and bears the scars from generations of purposeful use with distinction. Features include a 24-inch light sporter barrel with folding hood, pop-up night sight (bead absent) and banded sling swivel stud. A small flat has been milled into the top of the barrel just ahead of the front ring. The bore remains bright and the rifling strong, with scattered light roughness. The upper portion of the front ring is stippled, with the balance of the action, floorplate, guard, framed forearm attach screw and grip cap screw engraved with a medium scroll. The swing-over safety shows “SAFE” when positioned at 3 o’clock and the initial plate on the toe line remains blank. A spectacular folding rear sight with both day and night apertures strongly suggests original intent. The stock has a 13.6 LOP over an Old English pad, a horn tip and what appears to be a horn grip cap covering a storage reserve for additional front sights. Cracked at the rear guard screw, it has been stabilized with a third ebony-capped crossbolt and two additional “hidden” bolts that blend into the stock just behind the trigger. Checkering remains viable and the English cheek with shadowline betrays both pedigree and elegance, even at a distance. The price is firm and a layaway program is available. $7,500 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. $4,000 plus shipping.

Serial 13997 was made in 1938 and is certainly among the most historic and important hunting firearms ever offered, as it was used to take countless elephants and other dangerous game during Wally’s storied career. After becoming a professional hunter, Wally carried it when guiding an impressive list of clients which included Robert Ruark. Warren Page, Fred Huntington, Jack Lott and Fred Bear, as well as while hunting with Harry Manners. As is expected, its condition reflects generations of hard use – but it remains perfectly operational. Recent issues of Safari (Nov/Dec ’15) Sports Afield (May/June ’15) and Petersen’s Hunting (April/May ’15) magazines detailed every aspect of this rifle, and copies are included with the purchase. Also included are personalized a letter of authenticity from Wally’s son, Walter, plus an impressive selection of large laminated photographs of Wally with his famous clients and some of his best trophies. Walter Johnson will also personally inscribe a copy of Capstick’s book “The Last Ivory Hunter, The Saga of Wally Johnson” for the purchaser. Finally, the Johnson family is including their framed print (27/500) of Guy Coheleach’s “The Last Ivory Hunt” (which appears in the limited edition of Capstick’s book). The price is firm and a layaway program is available. $75,000 plus shipping.

Colt Woodsman Match Target pair, factory “C” engraved, gold, lettered, cased, 1983, unfired

As created in 1983 and fully supported by factory letters, this extraordinary cased pair of Colt Woodsman Match Target .22 LR pistols stands at the very pinnacle of the gunmaker’s craft. Serial 310375-S has a 4.5-inch barrel, while 058030-S wears a 6-inch barrel. Otherwise, as they were mated from inception, the pistols are identical in every respect. ENGRAVING: As flawlessly executed by Colt Master Engraver George Spring, the Grade C (in period Colt-speak, 75 percent coverage by a designated Master Engraver), a delicate floral and scroll extends along the slides, frames and flutes, then repeats on the lugs. In turn, these fields are accented by fine gold wire to such a high level of perfection it defies description. STOCKS: Each pistol showcases target stocks (right hand presentation) shot through with heavy figure. CASE: As lettered, the original walnut presentation case features a French-fitted interior and has the “Colt Custom” medallion inlaid on the outer lid. CONDITION: Near perfect and absent evidence of firing since delivery, only slight indications of handling are present. Magazines are proper. The case exterior has two minor edge impressions and two modest scratches on the lid. Interior is equally fine. (It is possible the case has been relined, as the factory letters seem to indicate lining color “Francis blue”.) Each set of stocks has minor wear (rubs and modest chipping under the finish) on the edges. FACTORY LETTERS: Each pistol is supported by an included individual letter detailing the features as well as the pairing. The price is firm and lawaway is available. $22,500 plus shipping.

Colt Single Action Army .45 Colt, 4.75-inch, early second generation, 1958, 19597SA, spectacular walnut grips and tune by Hoenig, estate of Tom Siatos

Colt Single Action Army .45 Colt. From the estate of Tom Siatos and made in 1958, this early Second Generation revolver wears serial 19597SA (both frame and cylinder). Features include a 4.75-inch barrel and color case frame. The estate attributes the screwless walnut grips and superb action tuning to George Hoenig. CONDITION: The bore is all but new.

Given the presumed association with Hoenig, along with a very modest softening of the barrel markings and close examination of the grip frame, it is reasonable to assume the revolver was refinished at the same time the other work was completed.
