Dumoulin (Henri Dumoulin & Fils, Belgium) Imperial Magnum Souvereign true left hand .416 Rigby Magnum. An outstanding and properly featured dangerous game rifle, serial 15211 wears a 24-inch barrel (gracefully tapering to .780-inch at the muzzle) fitted with a banded front sight (removable hood with three light ports, matted ramp, fixed blade with silver bead and a flip-up night bead), banded sling attachment point and a matted quarter rib rear sight with three leafs (one fixed and marked 100, two folders marked 150 and 200, both 100 and 150 leafs have gold sighting lines). The double square bridge action (untapped, dovetailed for EAW mounts) has a drop box magazine (3.8-inch magazine box with 4+1 round capacity, snaps over thumbed topping round), full-length claw extractor, jeweled bolt body and follower, sweeping bolt handle, eight-panel checkered bolt knob, three-position safety, single-stage trigger, oversize trigger guard, recessed floor plate release button and timed action screws.

ENGRAVING: Signed “Dumoulin” followed by what appears to be another “N” under the guard, the engraving is extraordinary! A gold relief bust of a heavily-maned lion graces the left side of the front ring, a leopard watches from the right and a magnificent solid-bossed Cape buffalo bull glowers from the floorplate. Each bust is surrounded by an intricate vine pattern that is in turn supported by delicate gold wire. The pattern continues to nearly full coverage over the action, trigger guard and trap door. In addition to the eight checkering panels circled in gold, the bolt knob ends in a spectacular floral sunburst. For all that, possibly the most striking engraving element is the delicate gold lattice topping each of the bridges. GOLD MARKINGS: “Imperial Magnum Souvereign” appears on the right side of the receiver, the maker’s name is scrolled on the right center of the barrel, “Safe” centers the shroud and “Cal 416 Rigby” floats within a ribbon across the bottom metal. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 9.8 pounds. Length-of-pull is 14.2 inches and drops are 1.5 inches and 1.3 inches respectively. CONDITION: The bore is exceptional, mirror bright with sharp rifling. Barrel finish is approximately 96 percent, with a trace of thinning at the muzzle, scratches on the front sight ramp from removing/replacing the hood and a few other scattered scratches along its length. The action is nearly 100 percent, with one small area of lifting in the gold wire on the upper right side of the floorplate. The grip cap is also nearly pristine. Stock condition is just short of 95 percent, with a general scattering of minor field impressions and light scratches that attest to intended use. The “New England Arms” import mark is hidden on the underside of the barrel just ahead of the forend tip. FUNCTIONING: Bolt operation is frightfully smooth. Feeding, extraction and ejection are effortless. The price is firm and layaway is available. $18,500 plus shipping.

Trio of ultra-compact prototype 1911 .45 ACP pistols created by Terry Tussey for Kimber as the foundation for Kimber’s Ultra RCP II model. PISTOL 1 – Serial number KU29156 is based on an Ultra CDP II. While retaining the original (3-inch) bull barrel/sights/slide configuration, the grip has been shortened approximately .880-inch and a finger groove added for improved control. A special aluminum mainspring housing was also added and, along with the grip itself, modified to a round butt configuration. Additional custom appointments include skeletonized hammer, wide thumb safety, bobbed grip safety, thin rosewood grips with Tussey Custom logo and a unique blended magazine plate. Retained Kimber features include a stainless steel match grade bull barrel, stainless steel slide with lowered/flared ejection port, 30 lines-per-inch checkering under the trigger guard and a tuned match grade trigger. Included are two five-round magazines. Overall condition is approximately 97 percent with modest indications of handling and firing. The related highly-modified Rimfire Target .22 LR barrel/slide is shortened to 3.5 inches (from five inches). Included are four Kimber 10-round rimfire magazines, but none have been shortened or modified to operate with this pistol (Tussey single-loaded rimfire rounds during testing and never got around to modifying the lips so the slide would close). Provenance – a letter from Tussey states that both calibers are sighted in at 25 yards and includes a three-shot .45 ACP group measuring .643 center-to-center. PISTOL 2 – Serial number KU23983 is based on an Eclipse Ultra II and retains the original stainless steel slide, frame and major dimensions – other than the grip being shortened .430-inch. The sights have been removed in favor of a trough machined and blended into the top of the slide that features a recessed “shallow V” rear sight and red fiber optic front bead. Additional modifications include a recessed slide stop pin and magazine release button, slimmed slide release, bobbed hammer/thumb safety/grip safety, added aluminum mainspring housing, rounded butt and thin rosewood grips with Tussey Custom logo. Condition is approximately 97 percent with minor indications of handling and firing. One six-round magazine is included. PISTOL 3 – Serial number KU25552 is based on a Ultra CDP II with original dimensions. The original sights have been removed in favor of a sighting trough ending in an Trilux H3 night sight bead (dimmed with age). An aluminum mainspring housing has been added and the grip recontoured to round butt. Thin slant-checkered rosewood grips have also been added. One Officer’s length seven-round magazine is included. Condition is approximately 98 percent with only faint indications of handling. The price is firm, layaway is available and the group will not be separated. $10,000 plus shipping.

R.G. Owen sidelock 20 gauge, two barrel sets, Kornbrath-attributed full coverage bouquet and scroll, 6.4 pounds, superb in every respect, high condition,

R.G. Owen 20 gauge sidelock ejector with two original barrel sets. Number 4001 is a spectacular little field gun that has seen but limited use during its pampered lifetime. Two barrel sets are present, each with single beads fronting matted solid ribs, ejectors and 2.75-inch chambers. The 28-inch set is choked C/IM, the 27-inch C/C. The seven pin action was created with Chilton locks and showcases arcaded fences, cocking indicators, elongated sculptured tangs, a Miller nonselective trigger and a mechanical safety. Stocked to the fences in walnut with such dark, rich grain that it presents a nearly sinister elegance, accents include 26 lines-per inch checkering with mullered borders and understated drop points. ENGRAVING: Logically attributed to Rudolph Kornbrath, the delicate unsigned work is of such exemplary quality that it virtually defines bouquet and scroll. Coverage is full over the action, tangs and furniture, with a trio of extensions flowing along each barrel. The initial plate set in the toe line remains blank and inviting. CONDITION: All four bores are strong and bright, and both sets are fully on face. The lever comes to rest nearly centered. Mechanics are positive and superb. Markings are sharp. Rust blue over the barrels, lever, safety, guard and tang is approximately 97 percent. Action colors are at least 70 percent. The splinter is approximately 95 percent, with one small faintly-impressed area in the checkering just ahead of the attachment diamond. The butt is at least 97 percent, with only minor evidence of being afield. DIMENSIONS: Weight is just 6.4 pounds. The balance point (with the 28-inch barrels) is .40-inch forward of the hinge pin. Length-of-pull is 14.3 inches and drops are 1.3 and 2.3 inches. Cast off is nearly absent, possibly .10-inch. INCLUSIONS: Although not befitting, a battered and unmarked oak and leather takedown case with loosening interior is present. A mahogany three-piece rod, accessories and an oil bottle are ensconced. The price is firm and layaway is available. $27,500 plus shipping.

“The Ultimate Quail Gun” by John Rowe with masterful engraving by Guiseppe Forte, 28 gauge, side-plated boxlock with two sets of plates, Huey case, 5.8 pounds, 15-inch LOP, nearly pristine

“The Ultimate Quail Gun” as commissioned in the late 1980s by Quail Unlimited, crafted by the famed John (Jack) Rowe and delicately engraved by Guiseppe Forte. A lively little 28 gauge worthy of the moniker, she wears 26-inch barrels with a single brass bead heading a swamped rib, M/F fixed chokes and ejectors. The action (Birmingham proofed) is a boxlock with two sets of side plates and a mechanical safety. Barrels (marked “Made In England” on the forend attachment lug) are finished in polished blue while the action, plate sets, forend furniture, opening lever, safety, tang and the scalloped heel/toe clips are a complimentary combination of color case and blue. All the screws are timed. Stocked from a perfectly-matched walnut blank set showcasing superb and consistent figure, the splinter as well as the straight butt wear 26 lines-per-inch wrap checkering with Mullered borders and additionally feature a checkered butt along with a deep hand-rubbed oil finish. ENGRAVING: The action, forend furniture, opening lever, guard, tangs and clips showcase Forte’s spectacular bordered rose and scroll to virtually full coverage. PRIMARY SIDEPLATES: The left plate is dressed with a brace of quail in flight, the right a flushing grouse and a rising woodcock graces the guard – each bird formed from gold. AUXILIARY SIDEPLATES: Numbered to the gun and bearing the initials “GF”, this set presents detailed rose bouquets surrounded by scroll and accenting borders. MARKINGS: “John F. Rowe Gunmaker No. 2” rides the rib while “Eng. By – Guiseppe Forte” hides on the underrib beneath the splinter. The initial plate set in the toe line remains blank. DIMENSIONS: Weight is just 5.8 pounds. Length-of-pull is 15.0 inches, drops are 1.5 and 2.5 inches, and cast off is approximately .25-inch. CONDITION: Seldom fired if at all, condition is at least 99 percent with minor indications of handling and storage impressions. HUEY CASE: Numbered “391”, the oak and leather masterpiece features a three-inch brass oval top plate engraved with a pair of quail rising from cover. The brass oiler is also engraved with a superb bordered rose. Both top plate and bottle are unsigned. Also included are two ebony-handled turnscrews, an ebony and brass chamber brush, brass snaps, two-piece ebony and brass cleaning rod, an extra set of sideplate screws with engraved heads and two keys. The case remains in very good condition, with some external wear and a bit of internal loosening (fabric points and cleaning rod retaining bar). CASE LABEL: The makers label on the upper lid reads “Quail Unlimited, The Ultimate Quail Gun, John F. Rowe – Gunmaker and Guiseppe Forte – Engraver”. The price is firm and layaway is available. $20,000 plus shipping.
