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.

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.

The stock begins with an ebony forend tip that transitions into a properly shaped and dimensioned forearm, and the butt has a gracefully scalloped and shadowlined cheekpiece. Checkering is fine, a borderless pattern that wraps around the forearm and panels the grip, each area in turn accented with arrows. The pistol grip ends in a checkered metal cap and the stock concludes in a one-inch pad mounted on a widow’s peak plate. The action itself features a jeweled bolt body and follower, straight bolt handle with two checkered teardrops,  two position wing safety and a Canjar trigger. Weight is  10.4 pounds and length of pull is 13.5 inches. CONDITION: Overall condition is at least 95%, with some evidence of field service. The bore shows strong and bright.

Some years later, the current owner tracked the rifle down and managed to complete his purchase.) The purchaser will receive a letter detailing specifics and history, and the following inclusions. PUBLICATIONS: Photocopy of Outdoor Life 1/70 feature “Elephants on the Zambezi” which chronicles bringing this rifle into play on elephant. It also mentions the scope, a Weaver 2.5x that still remains mounted and capable of service.

Photocopy of Outdoor Life 1/70 column “One-Rifle Safaris” that makes several references to the rifle. Photocopy of Hunting Guns 1991 (annual by Outdoor Life) feature “A Full House On Lions” with references to the rifle. Photocopy of Gun Notes, Volume 1, and a “letter” circa 1970 from O’Connor to Truman Fowler (who published Elmer Keith’s “Safari”) stating he had only owned two .416s (meaning Rigby Magnums). The subject rifle is the second of those. True copy of Gun Digest 1970 which carries the story “The Killing Power Controversy” and a one half page photo treatment of the subject rifle that details features and handloading information. PHOTOGRAPHS: Spectacular color 8×10 print of O’Connor, the rifle and his last Cape buffalo. B&W 8×10 print of the rifle resting across the boss of the last buffalo (Zambia, 1969). Color 8×10 and 5×7 prints of Jack with his only elephant. Although taken with the .416, he is holding his wife’s rifle in the photo. Color 5×7 print of O’Connor with his finest lion. In this image, Jack is cradling the rifle. Wonderful 8×10 print of O’Connor and his best lion, the rifle appearing in detail in the foreground.

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 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%.

Westley Richards .375 H&H Magnum (.375 Belted Rimless), serial number 42787.

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.

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.
