Colt Police Positive .22 LR custom, 9-inch barrel, folding rear sight, mother-of-pearl grips

Colt Police Positive .22 LR serial number 2006. Said to have originated from a movie prop house but absent any related documentation, this interesting revolver features a custom 9-inch barrel (no markings), folding rear sight and mother of pearl grips. It has been reblued, probably at the time of modification, and currently rates about 80% with some thinning and browning (mostly near the muzzle). Both grips are cracked near the butt and the left grip also suffers a small chip. The bore is great and lock up is drum tight. The price is firm and a layaway program is available. $1,000.

Custom Dale Goens .458 Winchester Magnum, Mauser 98, banded hardware, leather-covered recoil pad

Custom Dale Goens .458 Winchester Magnum. Based on a Mark X Mauser 98 action built in Yugoslavia and stocked in AAA English walnut with dynamic grain, features include a banded front sight with button-release hood and flip up night bead, banded sling swivel stud, bedded action (to the recoil lug), custom bottom metal with push-button floorplate release and a leather-covered recoil pad. Accents include a rosewood forend tip and grip cap, exceptional checkering and a shadow line cheekpiece. The barrel is 23.5 inches long and topped by a quarter rib with one fixed and three folding regulated leafs. The length-of-pull is 13.75 inches and weight is 9.0 pounds. Both the rust blue metal finish and the stock remain in at least 99% condition, with only the slightest hint of handling wear. The forearm has a small filled flaw (not a crack) on right side just aft of the forend tip. Inside, the bore is pristine. From an estate, the history is unclear. That said and even though unsigned, the estate represented the maker as Dale Goens – quite likely accurate as it included several other rifles from the same maker. The price is firm and layaway is available. $4,000.

Holland & Holland Takedown Mauser 98 .240 Apex, quick-detaching mount, fantastic bore

Holland & Holland Takedown in .240 Apex. 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 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. 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. Both the takedown, guard and butt plate screws are timed and enhanced with scroll. CONDITION: The bore is extraordinary – mirror bright and nearly pristine. Metal finish appears to be original and stands at approximately 80%, although most of the bottom metal coverage has thinned and silvered. Wood finish has tinned, with possible additions of oil. Checkering is worn and flattening. The stock itself bears the impressions of many days afield, in particular on the right side just ahead of the butt plate. Two tiny hairlines begin at the attach screw, but could well be on as deep as the finish. The barreled action has been glassed its full length. The horn butt plate is flaking and has some chipping. The right butt shows a teardrop area of finish that likely filled in an old inlay. DIMENSIONS: Weight (scoped) is 8.4 pounds. Length of pull is 14.15 inches. A Swarovski Z3 3-9x36mm with plex reticle is included. The price is firm and a layaway program is available. $15,000 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. 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. $28,500 plus shipping.

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. $8,000.
