Holland & Holland .240 Apex takedown. Based on a much-refined Mauser 98 action, serial number 49 is a spectacular example of why Holland & Holland is regarded among the world’s finest riflemakers. The sleek little rifle features a 23-inch light sporter barrel with partially-banded front sight and sling eye, banded rear sight with one standing (marked 50/200) and one folding (marked 350) leaf, single-lever detachable mounting system, modified bolt handle, conventional two-position safety, trapdoor grip cap and horn butt plate. The safety lever can only partially rise when the scope is in position (remaining “on safe” with some tension although not locked and still allows free bolt operation). MARKINGS: Serial number (49) appears on front ring and guard. “Holland & Holland, 98 New Bond St., London” centers on the barrel, “Holland’s .240 Bore APEX Regd. 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.

Luxus Arms Model 11 serial number 1, single shot takedown, .22-250 Rem. & .270 Win., unequaled wood, 2011, provenance, new in every respect

Luxus Arms Model 11 serial number 1. Outstanding in every possible respect, this single shot takedown masterpiece includes barrels chambered for .22-250 Remington (26-inch) and .270 Winchester (24.5 inches). The action and both barrels are numbered “L01” while the grip cap formally presents the serial as a gold-engraved superscore to the completion date of “7/15/2011”. Each light sporter barrel tapers to just .575-inch at the muzzle, incorporates a recessed crown and banded sling swivel stud, and is fitted with a petite scalloped quarter rib which accepts Talley rings. Bores are button rifled and then lapped by hand. The action, with just five moving parts and the sleek “LT” bottom lever, is a marvel of efficient design. Finished in the most perfect satin rust blue, every aspect of the metal is flawless. For all that, it is the unequaled, sinister character of the exhibition Turkish walnut that stops your heart. Shot through with an impossible twisting of bold figure, a dozen or so haunting faces appear upon examination – the exact number depending on one’s imagination. Forend and butt wear 24 lines-per-inch wrapped checkering with mullered borders, an inletted sling swivel stud rides the toe line and a Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad is fitted as a finishing touch. DIMENSIONS: Weight (with the .270 Winchester barrel) is 6.8 pounds. Length-of-pull is 14.5 inches. CONDITION: Absolutely new in every respect. PROVENANCE: An included Luxus Arms card bears the following in hand; “Dear Jim, Thank you from everyone at Luxus for purchasing the first Model 11. We appreciate the business!

ENGRAVING: Signed by John Vukos, the petite action is adorned with delicate, full coverage vine and scroll surrounding an outsized male leopard (right) and glowering tiger (left), the busts in gold relief. In turn, each field is bordered by gold wire which ultimately crosses the bridge to frame “.375 H&H” presented in gold script. The grip cap pedestal is dressed with a gold leopard track, as much to complete the theme as to hint of intended use. Vukos’ scroll also appears as accents on the sight hood, rib, tang and lever.

CASE: A hand-crafted leather presentation case with brass corners is topped with a brass oval declaring it contents as “Presentation 01”.

ENGRAVING: The receiver wears full coverage with game in gold relief. The right side features five pheasants, the left a trio of ducks and the underside a running rabbit; each in natural habitat which is then surrounded with a bolt vine pattern with framed by what appears to be a thin silver border.

Ithaca Model 37 $2,500 Grade 12 gauge, first-ever Cody Ithaca history letter, McGraw gold relief engraving, Snyder book authentication, from the factory collection, superb in every respect

Ithaca Model 37 $2,500 Grade 12 gauge. Subject of the first Ithaca history letter ever produced by the Cody Firearms Record Office, serial number 730182 once occupied a showcase position within the Ithaca factory collection and today stands tall among the world’s finest slide action shotguns. Features include a 28-inch barrel with fixed choke (full), matted vent rib with double beads (Raybar front and white or ivory mid) and a jeweled action (internals). ENGRAVING: Engraved by Bill McGraw (per Snyder book), the receiver showcases extraordinary gold relief game scenes, each bordered by an intricate shaded vine pattern to full coverage. The right side features three rising pheasants, the left 20 ducks and the guard a setter bust. The bordering pattern appears at both ends of the barrel, on the barrel nut bracket, inside the action (underside) and over the guard. WOOD: Stocked from a staggering exhibition walnut blank set with thick contrasting primary and crossing grain highlights, the checkering pattern is every bit as impressive as the engraving. A bordered pattern of 26 lines-per-inch with multiple fleur accents envelops the entirety of the slide, runs from a scalloped border with the receiver along the grip and touches the butt with a final flourish. The “S-shape” wood grip cap, initial shield (blank, on the toe line) and logo recoil pad complete the presentation. CODY LETTER DETAILS: Beginning in 1960, this masterpiece traveled across America for promotional display. From September, 1960 to April,1965, 19 such instances are specified. Recipients included Outdoor Life Magazine and the NRA. It is important to note that the consignment to the NRA referred to the shotgun as a $3,000 Grade*. ADDITIONAL PROVENANCE: As noted in the book Ithaca Gun Company, From the Beginning by Snyder (Walsworth, 1991, pages 222-23), this shotgun originated from the factory collection and was engraved by Bill McGraw. LOGICAL ATTRIBUTIONS: Careful examination and comparison strongly suggest that this shotgun is pictured on the back cover of the 1966 Ithaca catalog (engraving detail image at center of page), even though the catalog refers to the pictured model as a $3,000 Grade*. Also, the book Ithaca Featherlight Repeaters, The Best Gun Going by Snyder (Walsworth, 1998, page 183) appears to show this same shotgun in an obviously reversed image (slide release is not visible, hence what is shown is actually the left side), states that it was used to illustrate the back cover of the 1965 and 1966 catalogs, and labels it a $3,000 Grade*. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 7.6 pounds. Length-of-pull is 14.4 inches, drops are 1.5 and 2.25 inches. The stock appears to be absent cast. CONDITION: Having received especial care and attention over its lifetime, condition remains at least 98 percent. Barrel bluing shows what are almost certainly shipping crate rubs near the locking nut and there are a few minor imperfections in the varnish. INCLUSIONS: Cody Firearms Records history letter (three pages), Cody Firearms Records cover letter stating that the history letter is the first they have ever produced and a framed original 1966 Ithaca catalog. The price is firm and layaway is available. $27,500 plus shipping.
