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.

Mauser (Oberndorf) Model 98 mountain rifle in .280 Remington. Crafted in Austria, serial 102675 is an superb light weight sporter stocked in richly-figured AAA walnut with end-to-end crossing grain.

Custom .416 Rigby Magnum on bespoke Prechtl Magnum Mauser action, Lothar Walther, Dennis Smith stock, Lon Paul metal, quarter rib express, Rigby lines, 14.2 inches, over 99 percent

Magnificent bespoke .416 Rigby Magnum on a Prechtl Magnum Mauser action. Completed over the course of six years and bearing the unmistakable lines of a classic Rigby, serial number 0684 is a joint creation of three outstanding craftsmen. BARRELED ACTION: Ordered directly from Gottfried Prechtl (Germany) in 2001, the single square bridge magnum Mauser action is fitted with a 24-inch Lothar Walther barrel (tapering to .710-inch at the muzzle) wearing an integral front ramp, banded sling swivel stud and quarter rib. The front ring of the action is rounded over the sides and then turns to flow forward for a flawless transition into the rib. Additional Prechtl features include a Mauser-style “turn-over” safety, straight bolt handle, Recknagel trigger and a Rigby-style floorplate with a serrated inside-the-bow release button. Magazine capacity is four rounds (not 4+1). Feeding/extraction/ejection is magically smooth and single rounds can be thumbed into the chamber with the extractor closing over sans hesitation. The front sight blade itself is removable from the ramp and the brass bead is properly augmented by a flip-up moon sight. The quarter rib secures a fixed express blade and two folding leafs (marked “200 YDS” and “300 YDS”), each with a gold sighting line. STOCK: Dennis Smith shaped the stock from an exceptionally strong-grained English blank. Appointments include 24 lines-per-inch checkering (wrapping over the forearm and panels on either side of the grip) with partially-mullered borders, twin crossing bolts, scalloped pancake cheek rest with a wrapping shadow line, pedestaled bottom metal, steel grip cap, Howell-type inletted sling swivel stud on the toe line and a Silvers pad. The satin finish provides the perfect subtile accent to each feature and transition. METAL: Lon Paul had the final say with the metal, perfecting the corners and surfaces, filing the rib and rear bridge and applying the elegant rust blue. His work was completed in 2006. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 11.2 pounds and the length-of-pull is 14.2 inches. CONDITION: Test fired only and never hunted, the rifle remains in nearly 100 percent condition with scant evidence of handling. The price is firm and layaway is available. $15,000 plus shipping.
