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.

W.J. Jeffery & Co. (London) 8×57 full stock sporter.

The untapped action features a scalloped bolt handle with underside serrations and a three-position flag safety (180-degree rotation). Stocked from a blank of exhibition Turkish walnut with a staggering riot of full-length figure, appointments include a horn forend tip, 24 lines-per-inch wrap checkering with mullered borders (full on the forestock and partial over the grip), flaring comb point, scalloped cheek rest, Leonard Brownell steel grip cap, sling loop on the toe line, leather-wrapped recoil pad and oil finish. The action rests both fore and aft on pillars. MARKINGS: The Jeffery 60 Queen Victoria Street address rides the barrel’s curve. Caliber and proof marks show on the right shank. Both “3760011” and “463373” appear on the right front ring. “4633” shows stamped into the wood (barrel channel). HISTORY: Unknown. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 6.6 pounds and the length-of-pull is 14.0 inches. CONDITION: The bore shows uniform light roughness and slight softening of the rifling, yet appears wholly viable. Mechanics are positive and act entirely proper in dry operation. At some point the subject of a careful finish restoration, rust blue stands at over 95 percent with tack-sharp markings. Wood is similar, with refreshed checkering. A trio of small scratches, addressed hairlines or a combination of same appear on the right butt just below the heal. The price is firm and layaway is available. $7,500 plus shipping.

W.J. Jeffery (London) .375 H&H Magnum.

CONDITION: The bore is strong and bright. Metal finish is approximately 98 percent owing to small areas of trace thinning. Wood is at least 99 percent.

Kimber of Oregon Model 89 African Big Game Rifle .375 H&H Magnum, show gun, engraved, gold, serial BGRX375-1, quarter rib, express, square bridge, drop box, straight bolt, unfired, over 99 percent

Kimber of Oregon Model 89 Big Game Rifle “African” model in .375 H&H Magnum show gun. Completed circa 1987, serial BGRX375-1 is an outstanding example of Clackamas’ best efforts and was no doubt created to showcase both factory engraving as well as the African model (the dangerous game version of the BGR, this rifle not being marked “African” or having an African serial prefix). Features include a 24-inch tapered heavy sporter barrel, banded front sight with conventional brass-beaded blade and flip-up moon sight, barrel-mounted sling swivel stud, quarter rib (hand-matted top and leafs, one fixed and one folder, each with gold sighting lines), magnum-length square bridge action with recoil shoulders (accepts Kimber rings), straight bolt handle, three-position Model 70-type safety, drop box magazine (6+1 capacity, extractor snaps over) trap door grip cap and timed screws.

ENGRAVING: The late Larry Peters, Kimber’s factory engraver, once remarked that he spent more time on this particular rifle than any other during the time of his service. The complex and detailed supporting pattern radiates outward from a gold relief maned lion that graces the floorplate. Bordered by arches of leafy vine, the supporting pattern covers the entirity of the bottom metal, receiver and grip cap. It then reappears on the band, quarter rib, barrel, shroud and bolt handle. “Kimber of Oregon. Inc., Clackamas, Oregon, U.S.A.” is engraved just forward of the rib. The bolt knob is hand-checkered (four complex teardrops over a sunburst). DIMENSIONS: Weight is 10.0 pounds and the length-of-pull is 13.5 inches. CONDITION: Likely unfired since factory proof and certainly never hunted. Metal (rust blue) and wood (satin) finishes are at least 99 percent with traces of handling.

Kimber of Oregon Founder’s Edition Model 89 Big Game Rifle .375 H&H Magnum, second created, engraved, gold, select AAA-grade English, unfired

Kimber of Oregon Model 89 Big Game Rifle Founder’s Edition .375 H&H Magnum. BACKGROUND: During 1987, Kimber of Oregon owner’s Jack and Greg Warne elected to expand from making only rimfire (Model 82) and short-action centerfire (Model 84) rifles. In order to accomplish this an injection of funding was required, so a private placement stock offering was established. The initial outline was to offer at least $1.5M of stock with a minimum investment of $50K per individual. Those investing would be deemed “Founders” and part of their consideration was a Founder’s Edition Model 89 Big Game Rifle in a caliber of their choosing. While the initial edition size was intended to be 14 rifles, only eight were ever produced (according to detailed records kept by Kimber factory engraver, the late Larry Peters). The subject rifle is the second to be created (as designated by its serial number – FE-2). DESCRIPTION: Wearing a heavy sporter barrel sans provisions for open sights, the rifle adopts a general SuperAmerica configuration. The metal wears a polished blue finish and the action the standard capacity (3+1, the full-length claw extractor easily snapping over a hand-fed round). Mounts for Kimber rings are integral (square bridged) with the receiver. The safety is a three-position (similar to a Winchester Model 70). The action, of course, is a true controlled-round feeding design – a hybrid of the Mauser Model 98 and the Winchester pre-64 Model 70. STOCK: Crafted from a specially-selected AAA-grade English walnut blank accented with an ebony forend tip and 24 lines-per-inch multi-point wrap checkering, appointments include recessed (Howell-type) sling swivel studs, scalloped cheek rest with shadow line, steel grip cap and a satin finish. ENGRAVING: Larry Peters centered the bust of a roaring grizzly in a circular French gray field, bordered it with gold wire and accented the balance of the bottom metal with bordered and shaded vine. The pattern continues over the receiver and the double lever rings (1-inch medium). The bolt knob is hand-checkered with four panels plus a starburst and the action screws have received similar attention. Signatures of both Jack Warne and Greg Warne are reproduced on gold on either side of the chamber, “Kimber Big Game Rifle” circles the grizzly bust and “Founders Edition, 1 of 14” boldy rides the barrel. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.6 pounds and the length-of-pull is 13.5 inches. CONDITION: Unfired and nearly pristine with only minor indications of careful handling, the exception being cracking and darkening on the right side of the recoil pad. INCLUSIONS: The original factory hard case (designated by the affixed Kimber label), box end label (separate from the case), and papers are present. The price is firm and layaway is available. $10,000 plus shipping.

Kurz Mauser 8×51, Oberndorf, octagon-to-round, integral rib, 6.6 pounds, single stage, light engraving, good bore

Kurz Mauser 8x51mm. A lively little sporter, serial 4325 (appears 3x: underside of barrel, underside of action and inside the barrel channel) wears a Krupp 20-inch octagon-to-round tapered barrel (.575-inch muzzle diameter) with an integral matted tapering rib (.315-inch at the muzzle). The rib is topped with a beaded blade front sight and a dovetailed rear sight with two hand-matted leafs (one fixed and one folder), each dressed with a gold sighting line. The action, bottom metal, grip cap and screws are appointed with light bordering and scroll engraving. Stock accents include a Schnabel forearm, checkered grip with partial Mullered border, scalloped pancake cheek rest with shadow line, checkered horn butt plate and a grip cap with raised initial plate (blank). The rifle is provisioned for sling hooks. ACTION: Notable action features include a straight bolt handle, “hook” roll over safety (180 degrees, three positions), checkered bolt release and single stage trigger). MOUNTS: The included 30mm claw mounts are something of a conundrum and could only have been created by someone with intelligence approximating that of a Biden cabinet appointee. The attach/detach peration is proper, yet the the safety lever contacts the scope tube as it moves into the center (vertical) position. Also, an ocular housing diameter of approximately 1.4 inches or less is required in order not to make contact with the bolt handle during its operation. MARKINGS: “H. Halverscheid” is engraved on barrel right. Barrel left is marked “Hagen.” over the chamber and a silver elongated oval appears along side. The action is marked “49905” on the underside of the receiver with a partial number appearing 3x on the bolt and again on the magazine box. “7.7” appears on the underside as well (bore diameter measures approximately .315-inch). Receiver left is marked “2gGBP St. m. G.” and “Waffenfabrik Mauser-Oberndorf A/N”. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 6.6 pounds inclusive of rings. Length-of-pull is 13.3 inches. CONDITION: The bore is bright and shiny without signs of roughness. Metal finish is approximately 65 percent, with general thinning and browning. Mechanics operate properly. Wood is approximately 80 percent, with a trace of a stabilized hairline at the tang. The price is firm and layaway is available. $6,500 plus shipping.

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.
