Biesen custom Winchester pre-64 Model 70 Featherweight .270 Winchester Jack O’Connor tribute, completed in 2006, engraved, pristine

Imagined in 2002, commissioned in 2004 and raffled in 2006; this one-of-a-kind custom rifle is the result of superb cooperation between the O’Connor family, the Jack O’Connor Hunting Heritage and Education Center and the Idaho Chapter of FNAWS. Donated to the Boone and Crockett Club by the raffle winner, it is presented through the Club’s Guns For Conservation Program.

Those who are familiar with O’Connor’s writings will remember that Al Biesen stocked and customized two nearly-identical Winchester pre-64 Model 70 Featherweight .270 Winchester rifles for the legendary writer. As O’Connor wrote in Sheep and Sheep Hunting (Winchester Press, 1974), The No. 2 rifle is my particular pet. Month after month, year after year, in sunshine and in rain it puts its favorite load with the 130-grain Nosler bullet into a little group three inches high at a hundred yards.” The Biesen / O’Connor rifle offered here is a faithful reproduction of “No 2”. As it should be, the original is owned by the O’Connor family and destined to forever remain in their care.

Built by Al & Roger Biesen, the Model 70 Featherweight barreled action is flawlessly stocked in French walnut, graced with a fine borderless 24 lines-per-inch checkering accented with fleurs and finished with an ebony forend tip. Additional features include a jeweled bolt body, extractor and follower, two-panel checkered bolt knob, recontoured and checkered bolt release and a recontoured (cloverleaf) tang. The stock itself is dressed out with a steel bottom metal and grip cap, initial shield on the toe line (blank), cheek piece with shadow line and a Biesen trapdoor butt plate with widow’s peak.

ENGRAVING: Engraved by Paula Biesen-Malicki (Roger’s daughter), the bottom metal is accented with delicate scroll. The steel grip cap continues the theme, surrounding a bust of one Jack’s finest Coues’ deer. The butt plate is nothing short of spectacular, as it presents the bust of O’Connor’s 44-inch Dall’s ram taken in 1950 on Pilot Mountain in the Yukon Territory.

SCOPE: In order to create as exact a duplicate as possible, a Leupold Mountaineer 4x scope with a “straight crosshair” reticle rides in favored Tilden mounts. The only aspect of the rifle not in perfect condition, it retains some 95 percent of the original finish.

DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.8 pounds, length-of-pull is 13.5 inches and the balance point is two inches behind the forward guard screw.

CONDITION: New and unfired since completion.

INCLUSIONS: As assembled by the raffle winner and donor, a three-ring notebook approximately one-inch thick contains original and copied correspondence between the O’Connor family members, O’Connor biographer Eldon “Buck” Buckner, FNAWS, Roger Biesen, Wolfe Publishing (Rifle Magazine), a final draft of Craig Boddington’s August, 2005  Gunnotes column on the rifle, original promotional flyers and a raffle ticket stub. Original and copied photos include the Biesen’s with the rifle in progress as well as finished, along with a pair of O’Connor’s field photos with trophy rams. Finally, a single live Winchester Super Speed .270 round is included. Some would say it to be worth more than the rifle itself. The price is firm and layaway is available. $20,000 plus shipping. Proceeds benefit the Boone and Crockett Club.

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).

Griffin & Howe .375 H&H Magnum, true magnum Mauser action, drop box, quarter rib, AAA English, nine pounds

Griffin & Howe .375 H&H Magnum built on a magnum Mauser. A stunning dangerous game rifle with superb appointments, the 24-inch barrel has a matted ramp front sight with brass bead, gracefully banded sling swivel stud and a matted quarter rib with one standing and two folding leafs regulated for 100/200/300 yards. The action is a true magnum Mauser (9.25-inches long) with single square bridge, integral bases with sighting notch (to clear open sights), sculpted drop box bottom metal (four plus one capacity) with inside-the-bow release button, two-position knurled wing safety, jeweled bolt body and follower, checkered (two panels) bolt knob and a finely-checkered trigger shoe. The stock is fashioned from an exhibition grade English walnut blank shot through with dark ribbons. Accents include an ebony forend tip, wrap-around 24 lines-per-inch checkering with double border, English (pancake) cheekpiece with wrapping shadow line, leather-wrapped recoil pad, steel grip cap and inletted pedestal sling swivel stud.

HISTORY: Per the Griffin & Howe historian, no records exist. CONDITION: It appears this rifle was completely refurbished by Griffin & Howe at some point. Careful examination of the action (inside) indicates the presence of filled side mount attachment points. The bore is virtually new, which combined with the slender contour suggests it was replaced using the original sights and banded stud. Metal finish is about 99 percent, with only slight indications of use. Wood finish is 99 percent as well, while wood integrity is about 98 percent due to a scattering of minor scuffs and field impressions. $10,000 plus shipping.

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. Based on a refined Mauser 98 action and completed circa 2010, serial 39834 is a wonderfully presented and well-appointed inclusion that would stand tall within even the finest African battery. The 25-inch medium sporter barrel (.625 muzzle diameter) is fitted with a collared front sight assembly (knurled hood, stippled ramp, serrated deck, brass-beaded blade), banded sling swivel stud and a collared island rear sight assembly (stippled ramps, filed deck, one standing express leaf and two folders engraved 1/2/3 then finished with filed faces to void reflection and gold sighting lines for quick and positive acquisition). The action is topped with EAW quick-release mounts (30mm medium) and modified with a straight bolt handle, custom shroud with three-position wing safety, reprofiled (flattened) bolt release with niter blue accent, custom bottom metal with rolled guard and a Timney trigger. STOCK: Shaped from an extraordinary blank of Turkish walnut, highlights include wrap checkering with partial mullered border, crossbolt, open pistol grip, scalloped cheek rest with shadow line, steel grip cap (color case), sling swivel stud and a hand-rubbed oil finish. A “hard heel” pad reduces the likelihood of hanging up when bringing to shoulder. The action beds on aluminum pillars. ENGRAVING: The bottom metal is engraved to approximately 90 percent coverage with a bordered leafy vine design surrounding the caliber in gold, the pattern reappearing on the grip cap and crossbolt. “S” and an arrow appear in gold on the right side of the shroud. “W J Jeffery & Co London England” rides the crest of the barrel. “Cal 375 H&H” and “Made In England” show on the right side of the receiver rings. Proof, caliber and “10” have been added to the right rear barrel. The importer’s mark (BSA Milbrook NY) shows on the underside of the barrel ahead of the forearm. The caliber is engraved over the curve of the front ring while both maker and serial appear on the rear ring. Initials “TDH” are on the toe line plate.  The serial is also stamped in the barrel channel. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 9.0 pounds and the length-of-pull is 14.6 inches. 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. INCLUSIONS: A faux crocodile leather makers case with brass corners houses a fine leather sling, paired ebony turnscrews, maker’s oiler, cleanng rod and attachments, makers label and charge information.

Jeffery .500 Jeffery, London, Mauser single square bridge, drop box, banded, quarter rib, wing safety, niter accents, unfired

W.J. Jeffery (London) .500 Jeffery. Serial 40637 is an extraordinary dangerous game rifle that stands as testament to the storied maker’s visceral understanding of its intended purpose. The tapering 23-inch heavy barrel (.750 muzzle diameter) wears a banded front sight with forward-folding hood, stippled tapering ramp, serrated flat, brass-beaded blade and a pop-up moon bead. Tipping the hat to recoil, a banded sling swivel stud is seamlessly integrated a respectful distance from the forearm’s tip. A tapering stippled quarter rib secures three drift-adjustable express blades in a serrated flat (one fixed and two folders, optimistically engraved 50/100/200), each with a filed face to void glare and a gold sighting line for quick, positive alignment. The massive Mauser single square bridge magnum action features a three-position wing safety, long backswept bolt handle, checkered bolt knob (two bordered opposing panels) and a drop box magazine the size of a horse trough. Even the Recknagel trigger has a serrated face – for sweaty hands are the rule when a hunter closes with the grand old bull of his dreams. Primary metal finish is, of course, polished rust blue while the follower, extractor and bolt release spring flare with niter. In elegant contrast the shroud, crossbolt, floor plate, ERA trap door grip cap and inletted sling swivel stud are color case.  STOCK: Shaped to perfection from a stunning exhibition grade English walnut blank, formalities include 26 lines-per-inch wrap checkering with partial mullered borders and a single accenting diamond on the forearm belly, scalloped cheek rest with shadow line and a leather-wrapped recoil pad. The trap door holds a replacement double-bead front sight blade with niter base and the butt cradles a mercury cylinder to dampen the rifle’s most sincere recoil. For additional integrity, the action beds down on metal pillars. MARKINGS: “W.J. Jeffery & Co. London England” is centered on the barrel. “Cal .500 Jeffery” dominates the front ring. “NP .500 07” shows just under the rib on barrel right. The safety “S” with arrow, serial on the guard and caliber on the trap door are each engraved in gold. Both barrel and action are serialed below the wood line and the stock is serialed in the channel. Initials “TDH” appear on the toe line shield. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 11.0 pounds and the length-of-pull is 15.0 inches. HISTORY: Unknown. CONDITION: Never afield, condition crowds 100 percent with only trace indications of handling. No accessories are present. The price is firm and layaway is available. $40,000 plus shipping.

Kimber of Oregon Model 89 African Big Game Rifle .375 H&H Magnum, show gun, engraved, gold, serial BGRX 375-1, 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 BGRX 375-1 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. STOCK: Shaped from a straight-grain blank selected for strength, appointments include an ebony forend tip, 26 lines-per-inch wrap checkering, double crossbolts with ebony plugs, scalloped ejection port shoulder, open grip profile, traditional (pancake) scalloped cheek rest with shadow line, inletted (Howell-type) sling swivel stud 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). Peter’s signature is engraved on the tang (under the bolt shroud). RINGS: Engraved 1-inch medium double lever rings (not pictured) are included. 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. The ivory moon sight bead is missing (will be replaced upon request). No box or papers. SISTER RIFLE: BGRX 300-1, a similar .300 Winchester Magnum in equally pristine condition, is available separately. The price is firm and layaway is available. $10,000 plus shipping.

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. Peter’s signature is engraved on the tang (under the shroud). 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.

Kimber of Oregon Model 89 BGR Founder’s Edition .375 H&H Magnum, serial FEG2, engraved, likely unfired

The father and son team of Jack and Greg Warne founded Kimber, then properly Kimber of Oregon, in 1979. They had an inkling gun-savvy American shooters were pining for a fine .22 sporting rifle and that building them would make for a fair business. Saying they were proved right is an extraordinary understatement. The Warnes were also pretty good at listening to their rapidly growing customer base, and it wasn’t long before they began offering a mini-Mauser christened the Model 84. Chambered in .223-length cartridges, orders rolled in and the Warnes struggled to meet demand. They also kept listening. Came the Model 89 BGR – the Model 89 Big Game Rifle to keep things formal. To the manner born, it combined the best features of the great Mauser 98 and Winchester’s superb pre-64 Model 70 – all in a sleek American sporter stock vetted by the sharpest eyes in riflery of the time. Swamped with orders, they decided to expand the company via a private stock offering that would raise enough scratch to make it happen. Putting pen to paper, the Warnes determined how much was required and what they could accept without giving up control of their company. The individual ante was set at $50,000, and that takers would be presented with a very special Founder’s Edition rifle wrapped in their stock certificate. Fourteen shareholder positions were offered. The money rolled in, but a combination of factors saw the company fall into bankruptcy several years later. According to records kept by factory engraver Larry Peters, only seven of the promised 14 Founder’s Edition rifles were ever completed. This rifle is one of them. Wearing a polished blue finish, it is stocked in fine English walnut appointed with an ebony forend tip, wrap-around checkering, Howell-type inletted sling swivel studs and the beaded cheekpiece found on Kimber’s top-end SuperAmerica model of that period. Elegantly engraved by Mr. Peters, the highlight is a roaring grizzly bust set in a French gray, gold-encircled background on the floor plate that incorporates the legend “Kimber Big Game Rifle.” In addition, scroll accents grace the floorplate, trigger guard, barrel shank, receiver and double lever rings (1-inch medium). “Founders Edition 1 of 14” is boldly engraved along the top of the barrel. The special serial number “FEG2”, engraved screw heads, checkered bolt knob and gold signatures of the Warnes complete the presentation. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 8.6 pounds and the length-of-pull over the Kimber recoil pad is 13.65 inches. CONDITION: Almost certainly unfired since factory proof, the bore is pristine. Metal finish is approximately 97 percent, with a modest distribution of micro-freckles scattered along the barrel and grip cap. Wood is at least 98 percent with a traces of handling and tiny spots of what is likely glue used to attach the recoil pad. No box or papers are present. The price is firm and layaway is available. $10,000 plus shipping.
