“Another favorite of mine is an old .270. I can never take it out of the cabinet without thinking of where that rifle and I have been together and of the game I have seen through its telescope sight. With it I shot my first Canadian bighorn, my first moose, my first goat, and my first white Dall ram.”

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.

Jerry Fisher custom Mauser 98 .358 Winchester, 1959, featured in Kennedy checkering book, shortened to Kurz length by Fullington, 22-inch Apex, Heilman, Farman, provenance, updated and refreshed to 95 percent

Important Jerry Fisher custom Mauser 98 .358 Winchester. Made circa 1959 as a gift for Jerry’s brother-in-law and retained by the family until recently, it is an interesting rifle on multiple levels. ACTION: The military Mauser action was shortened .50-inch by John Fullington. The work is exceptional as it is nearly impossible to detect the weld line. Fisher smithed the bolt handle himself and added two bordered teardrop checkering panels. Bolt body, extractor and follower were jeweled. As was common at the time, the follower was not modified to permit the bolt to close over an empty magazine and the extractor was not reshaped to “snap over”. Capacity is three rounds, all feeding from the magazine. A carefully-tuned single stage Jaeger trigger was pressed into service. BARREL: An Apex 22-inch light sporter barrel (recessed crown, .565-inch muzzle diameter, six lands/grooves) was selected as it was one of the top brands of the era. STOCK: Fisher crafted the stock from a select blank of California English walnut in a pattern attributed to Monty Kennedy. The 22 lines-per-inch checkering pattern features complex borders, bold ribbons and outlined fleurs. A deeply figured tapering grip cap with pedestal provides an elegant contrast to the honey-blonde stock. A blind magazine, what Jerry called “concealed magazine job”, adds much to the sleek lines. OPTIC: A period Lyman All-American 2.5x (1-inch tube, straight crosswire reticle) is mounted in Redfield hardware. DIMENSIONS: Weight (with optic) is 7.2 pounds. Length-of-pull is 13.7 inches. CONDITION: The bore is outstanding, strong and bright. Feeding is positive although the follower spring seems weak. As recently refreshed and modified, the Bruce Farman rust blue metal finish is approximately 99 percent. Steve Heilman reprofiled the original high comb and cheek rest, replaced the aged butt plate with a Pachmayr recoil pad, matched the finish over the butt to the original and added a two-position wing safety. Overall, wood condition approaches 95 percent. PROVENANCE: Pictured and described in Monty Kennedy’s Checkering & Carving of Gunstocks (page 291) and supported by a letter from Celeste Fisher (Jerry’s widow), both included. A period leather sling with Jaeger swivels is also present. The price is firm and layaway is available. Trades for fine sporting rifles (particularly customs, rimfires and dangerous game calibers) and handguns will be respectfully considered. $7,500 plus shipping.

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 (accept Talley rings) 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. Additional accenting touches include niter blued bolt release lever and screws. The extractor face has been tapered to “snap over” a round dropped into the chamber. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 9.0 pounds and length of pull is 13.8 inches. Drops are 1.5 and 1.75 inches from the top of the integral bases. MARKINGS: “No. 745 Griffin & Howe, Inc. New York” on rib, “.375 Magnum” on chamber left, “105306” behind the barrel lug, “73688” and what appears to be “E3B” on the underside of the barrel, and either “L87” or “187” on both the underside of the barrel and front ring. IMPORT MARKINGS: A tiny “BV LINDEN WA USA” shows on the underside of the barrel just ahead of the forend tip and “114” appears on the lower right front ring, suggesting it was imported from Canada. 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. The price is firm and layaway is available.

Hoenig custom Winchester pre-64 Model 70 .30-06, gunwriter build, outstanding quality, Leupold, 98 percent

Hoenig custom Winchester pre-64 Model 70 .30-06. Originating from the estate of Tom Siatos and based on a refined barreled action (serial 33959 made in 1941) this is the literal definition of a classic American custom rifle. The metal has a superb rust blue finish and remains almost entirely original, the exception being a careful rounding of the bottom metal to blend with the contour of the stock. The metal grip cap is engraved “G. HOENIG BOISE ID”. The stock is shaped from an elegant blank of AAA-grade English walnut to the contour of a proper mountain rifle. The open grip, at least for an American custom rifle, is ahead of its time. Being a Hoenig, the 26 lines-per-inch wrap bordered checkering is wonderfully executed and perfectly compliments. Additional appointments include an English cheek rest with softened edge and a leather-wrapped recoil pad. DIMENSIONS: Weight (with optic) is 9.2 pounds and length-of-pull is 13.6 inches. CONDITION: The bore is pristine. Metal finish is at least 98 percent. Wood is approximately 97 percent owing to a scattering of field impressions (most along the toe line). OPTIC: A Leupold VX-3i 3.5-10×40 (Duplex reticle, matte finish, .25 MOA clicks) rides in Redfield mounts. TOM SIATOS (1923-2008) spent the majority of his life in close association with firearms and hunting. His professional contributions, tremendous category knowledge, bottomless enthusiasm and bold personality influenced the firearms industry and outdoor media to such a degree that it remains a viable force today. Tom was the second editor of Guns & Ammo Magazine. As such, he was responsible for the general tone of the iconic publication. A consummate hunter, spectacular all-around shot and true connoisseur of fine firearms, his interests spanned the full spectrum of the shooting sports. In 1942, Tom enlisted in the Marine Corps. He served in units that scouted and destroyed isolated enemy communication sites on a number of Pacific islands, eventually receiving a battlefield commission. After concluding his service, he attended UCLA and later joined the fledgling Petersen’s Publishing Company in 1958. A series of promotions led to him to become vice president of the Petersen’s Publishing Outdoor Division, which thrived under his leadership. Tom Siatos was a mentor, visionary, leader, father figure and a true original. We will never see his like again. The price is firm and layaway is available. $6,750 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.

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.

Harry Selby’s Weatherby Mark V .300 Weatherby Magnum, 1967, engraved, gold initials, scoped, superb provenance and condition

Weatherby Mark V factory custom .300 Weatherby Magnum. Made in 1967 by special order for a satisfied safari client and presented to renowned African professional hunter Harry Selby, serial number P134412 stands tall among the most important and desirable West German Weatherby rifles ever created. Basic features include a 24-inch barrel, jeweled bolt body, two-panel checkered bolt knob, rosewood forend tip and pistol grip cap with double spacers, intricate skip-line checkering pattern, Buehler mounts and a Weatherby 2-7x scope with fine crosshair reticle. CONFIGURATION: The rifle has a right hand bolt and a left hand (right side) cheek rest, as was Selby’s preference. ENGRAVING: The floorplate presents initials “JHS” (for John Henry Selby – “Harry” was his nickname) in gold relief. The entirety of the action as well as the Buehler mounts wear full-coverage scroll intertwined with flowing grasses, the pattern continuing along the top of the barrel to the middle of the forend tip. PROVENANCE: Dated 2nd August, 2017, a letter with Mr. Selby’s original signature recounts his time with the rifle. MARKINGS: In addition to the standard Weatherby markings, a small “Griffin & Howe, Andover NJ” rides the bottom of the barrel just forward of the forend tip and “181529” shows on the bottom of the trigger guard, these both required as a condition of the recent repatriation from Africa. DIMENSIONS: Weight, with scope, is 8.8 pounds and the length-of-pull is 13.5 inches. CONDITION: The bore is strong and bright. Engraving is flawless. The barrel blue is approximately 95 percent, with some thinning on the muzzle face and a highlight line along the top between the muzzle and forend tip (no doubt from riding the rack in a safari truck). One small freckle appears on the right side of the barrel a few inches aft of the muzzle. The action finish is 100 percent, with slight thinning on the bolt knob and some thinning following the edges of the floorplate. Even the gold plate on the trigger rates near 95 percent. The stock is also approximately 95 percent overall. The varnish has some light crazing and checkering is tack sharp. One minor impression appears on the left side of the barrel channel, some faint impressions show on the grip cap and along the toe line, and one small area of missing varnish tops the Monte Carlo hump. The scope is optically clear, with lenses and coatings in fine condition. The rubber “bumper” ring on the ocular housing has cracked from pressure of the included covers. HARRY SELBY (1925-2018) is one of the most famous and respected professional hunters who ever swung a rifle onto his shoulder and took up the track. By greatest fortune, he gained the both the respect and admiration of Robert Ruark, becoming internationally famous through Ruark’s writings. Selby served as the inspiration for Ruark’s hero Peter McKenzie in Something of Value and Ruark dedicated what many believe is the finest book ever written about safari life, Horn of the Hunter, to Selby. On a personal level, Ruark was honored to become Godfather to Harry’s son, Mark Selby. The price is firm and layaway is available. Trades for fine sporting rifles (particularly customs, rimfires and dangerous game calibers) and handguns will be respectfully considered. $30,000 plus shipping.

Winchester pre-64 Model 70 serial numbers 1 and 2

Absent anything short of absolute certainty these rifles stand among the world’s most important and valuable sporting arms. That they are paired presents an unequaled acquisition opportunity. Both have a captivating history.

According to Roger Rule’s The Rifleman’s Rifle, serial number 1 was marked on January 20, 1936. As Winchester records are unavailable so far as supporting a proper factory letter is concerned, the actual shipping date and destination are unknown. As detailed in Winchester Model 70 No. 1, a feature article appearing in the June, 1990 issue of American Rifleman (copy included), the current owner’s uncle purchased the rifle from a hardware store in Durango, Colorado during the 1937 hunting season. Whether new or used when the sale was wrung, the rifle was already fitted with a Lyman receiver sight. Upon returning from the hunting trip, the owner had the rifle drilled and tapped in order to install a 10x Fecker scope, then hunted with it for the next forty years. In 1977, after using it over the course of several deer seasons, the current owner formally acquired the rifle – it still wearing the Fecker and with the Lyman sight in tow. Staggeringly, another ten years passed before a chance showing resulted in a dealer getting the vapors and blurting out a surprisingly high offer. This sparked a curiosity which lead to the realization that his plain old Model 70 was the first of its kind. With significant reservation, the rifle was retired from hunting after 50 years of faithful and flawless service.

Published in 1982 by Alliance Books, The Rifleman’s Rifle did much to expand and solidify collector interest in Winchester pre-64 Model 70 rifles. Quite naturally, the owner of the number 1 rifle acquired a copy as part of his research. Page 193 carried a photo of serial number 2 from Rule’s collection, and page 52 showed a photo of a letter from Richard Pelton, Winchester’s Director of Marketing dated March 6, 1980. Written to Mrs. Ethel M. Lied, the letter mentions the January 20, 1936 marking date for the number 1 rifle and also states that assembly of Model 70 rifles did not begin until 1937. Pointedly, the letter references Mrs. Lied’s inquiries as to the value of her rifle – serial number 2. No doubt, ownership of the number 2 rifle passed to Roger Rule at approximately this time. At some point thereafter, the number 2 rifle was presented for sale at a major gun show attended by the owner of rifle number 1. As things tend to do, one lead to another and ownership transferred.

To no surprise, both rifles are of standard configuration and chambered in .30-06 Springfield.

Serial number 1 condition: The bore remains smooth, strong and viable. Drilling/tapping for scope mounting includes 2x on the barrel just forward of the rear sight boss and 2x on the front ring. The rear sight is absent and the dovetail is protected with a “plug”. Overall metal finish is approximately 65 percent, as expected after 50 years of use in the hunting fields. Wood integrity is strong (absent cracks or chips). Wood finish condition is approximately 60 percent overall. Checkering is smoothing. Finish is thinning or absent in places and a general distribution of field impressions and scratches are in evidence. The bolt body is faintly marked “1” in electric pencil (or similar).  The Fecker scope is viable and remains optically clear, with surface finish of approximately 70 percent.

Serial number 2 condition: The bore remains smooth, strong and viable. Drilling and tapping for scope mounting includes 2x on the front ring. Overall metal finish is approximately 75 percent. Wood integrity is strong (absent cracks or chips). Wood finish condition is approximately 70 percent overall. Checkering is strong. A general distribution of field impressions and scratches are in evidence. The bolt body is faintly marked “2” in electric pencil (or similar).

Inclusions: In addition to a complete bound set of American Rifleman magazines from 1990 with the referenced article, a personalized letter detailing the known history and transfer details of the rifles will be provided by the owner.

An installment sale may be arranged following a suitable, non-refundable deposit. The pair will not be separated. All transportation arrangements and associated costs are the responsibility of the purchaser. The price is firm at $1,750,000.
