Top levers open to the left and cheekpieces are on the right side of the butts. Common features include hooded ramp front sights with flip up night beads, windage-adjustable quarter rib express rear sights with one fixed and three folding leaves (engraved 50/100/150/200), manual safeties, articulated front triggers, bushed strikers, hand-detachable sidelocks, jeweled water tables, extended upper and lower tangs, trapdoor grip caps, beavertail forends and 26 lines-per-inch checkering. Barrels are rust blue and actions are finished in an accented coin. Triggers, forend releases and some pins are niter blue. As these rifles were imported by Midwest Gun Sport of Ellisville, Missouri, it is nearly certain both were finished in the 1980s. Engraver J. Vielvoye’s signature shows under the trigger guards. Each has the original owner’s name (Robert A. Sweet) in gold on the quarter rib and the initial “S” in a gold oval on the toe line. SERIAL 11279 – .375 H&H MAGNUM. Weight is 10.8 pounds, barrels are 26.25 inches long and length of pull is 14.5 inches. Drops are 1.25 and 2.25 inches. Cast (on) is approximately .50-inch. Full coverage game-scene engraving surrounded by bouquet and scroll features a group of four Cape buffalo bulls on the savannah (right lock), a glaring solid-bossed bull standing in the jesse (left lock) and a gold bust of a heavy-horned bull (bottom). The pattern continues along the top lever, over the guard and down both extended tangs. It then reappears on both front and rear sight ramps, forend furniture and grip cap. Additional gold accents include a heavy wire collar at the barrel bases, sighting lines on the leaves, an “S” just ahead of the tang safety, and gold-plated strikers, internals and some pins. Stocked in heavily-marbled Turkish walnut, it remains in virtually new condition save modest evidence of careful handling. SERIAL 11280 – .470 Nitro Express. Weight is 10.8 pounds, barrels are 25.7 inches long and length of pull is 14.5 inches. Drops are 1.0 and 1.9 inches. Cast (on) is approximately .50-inch. Full coverage game-scene engraving surrounded by bouquet and scroll features two alerted elephant bulls (right lock), an elephant herd led by a huge bull (left lock) and a charging bull in gold (bottom). The balance of engraving as well as condition matches that of the other rifle. The buttstock of this rifle features particularly heavy marbling. COMMON INCLUSIONS: Each trapdoor grip cap houses an extra set of gold-plated strikers and an extra front sight blade. Both of these blades have surface rust from being wrapped in paper. The price is firm and layaway is available. $70,000 the pair, plus shipping.

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.

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.

Rigby .470 Nitro Express with extra 12 gauge barrels, engraved, scope in quick release, cased, superb condition

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 quarter rib has a fixed blade regulated for 50 yards and a folder regulated for 100, along with a superb EAA quick-release mounting system that secures a Leupold Vari-X III 1.5-5x scope with Duplex reticle. A swivel stud (removable) is also present. SHOTGUN BARRELS: The 12 gauge barrels are 28 inches long with a fiberoptic front sight bead. Chambers are 3 inches long and chokes are C/IC. ENGRAVING: Signed by B. Burgess under the guard, the boxlock receiver wears a bold scroll to 80% coverage, the maker’s name centered in a banner crossing the bottom. The pattern extends the length of the opening lever, continues along the tangs and repeats on the grip cap as well as both sets of forend furniture. “John Rigby & Co., Paso Robles, CA” appears in gold script on both barrel sets. On the rifle barrels, “.470 NE”, regulation distances and aiming lines are in gold. The safety “S” as well as the famous adorsed Rs on the grip cap complete the inlays. DIMENSIONS. Length of pull is 15.2 inches. Weight with rifle barrels (scoped) is 13.4 pounds, while the shotgun is just 7.7 pounds. Drops are 1.6 and 1.9 inches, while cast (off) is approximately .4 inches. CONDITION: Nearly new, including both bores. Wood has several minor impressions and minor finish chips where the butt joins the right side of the receiver.

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.

Wally Johnson’s (Capstick’s “Last Ivory Hunter”) Winchester Model 70 .375 H&H Magnum, documented, book, Coheleach print, field photos, history letter

Winchester Model 70 .375 H&H Magnum from the Wally Johnson estate. Mr. Johnson is the subject of Peter Hathaway Capstick’s biography “The Last Ivory Hunter” and this was his most-used hunting rifle. Serial 13997 was made in 1938 and is certainly among the most historic and important hunting firearms ever offered, as it was used to take countless elephants and other dangerous game during Wally’s storied career. After becoming a professional hunter, Wally carried it when guiding an impressive list of clients which included Robert Ruark. Warren Page, Fred Huntington, Jack Lott and Fred Bear, as well as while hunting with Harry Manners. As is expected, its condition reflects generations of hard use – but it remains perfectly operational. Recent issues of Safari (Nov/Dec ’15) Sports Afield (May/June ’15) and Petersen’s Hunting (April/May ’15) magazines detailed every aspect of this rifle, and copies are included with the purchase. Also included are personalized a letter of authenticity from Wally’s son, Walter, plus an impressive selection of large laminated photographs of Wally with his famous clients and some of his best trophies. Walter Johnson will also personally inscribe a copy of Capstick’s book “The Last Ivory Hunter, The Saga of Wally Johnson” for the purchaser. Finally, the Johnson family is including their framed print (27/500) of Guy Coheleach’s “The Last Ivory Hunt” (which appears in the limited edition of Capstick’s book). The price is firm and a layaway program is available. $75,000 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%. A hairline crack on the left side of the stock begins at the forend tip and extends for about three inches. Careful examination under magnification suggests this happened during the manufacturing process and was stabilized prior to the original finish being added. The price is firm and a layaway program is available. $3,000.

Westley Richards .375 H&H Magnum, 7.2 pounds, engraved, folding aperture, pop-up night sight

Westley Richards .375 H&H Magnum (.375 Belted Rimless), serial number 42787. Built on a Mauser 98 action, this wonderful London rifle weighs just 7.2 pounds and bears the scars from generations of purposeful use with distinction. Features include a 24-inch light sporter barrel with folding hood, pop-up night sight (bead absent) and banded sling swivel stud. 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. The swing-over safety shows “SAFE” when positioned at 3 o’clock and the initial plate on the toe line remains blank. A spectacular folding rear sight with both day and night apertures strongly suggests original intent. The stock has a 13.6 LOP over an Old English pad, a horn tip and what appears to be a horn grip cap covering a storage reserve for additional front sights. 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 plus shipping.

Left hand battery of eleven Winchester Custom Shop Model 70 rifles, 1990s, new/unfired, consecutive serial numbers, special calibers, controlled round feeding actions, solid documentation

Spectacular left hand battery of eleven Winchester Custom Shop Model 70 rifles with consecutive serial numbers and controlled round feeding actions. Calibers include .243 Winchester, .25-06 Remington, .270 Winchester, 7mm Remington Magnum, 7mm STW, .30-06 Springfield, .300 Winchester Magnum, .338 Winchester Magnum, .35 Whelen, .375 H&H Magnum and .416 Remington Magnum. Based on receivers taken from the original prototype run of 40 left hand actions (ten were built as test rifles and subsequently destroyed, 11 were used for this group and almost all the rest were returned to production), each of these rifles was hand-built by the USRAC Senior Design Engineer responsible for the Model 70 program in the 1990s. Himself a lefty, he created these rifles for his own use, yet never took them afield. As such, all remain in unfired condition with only light handling/storage wear. Of the eleven calibers, six were never offered in production. Almost all are in Sporter configuration, exceptions being the .243 Winchester (long action with magazine spacer, McMillan synthetic varmint stock modified for an H-S Precision heavy barrel) and the .30-06 Springfield (Featherweight). This .30-06 Springfield is the first left hand Model 70 CRF rifle ever built, even among the prototypes. The purchaser will receive personalized documentation from the builder/consignor detailing the origin and history. Most include boxes with handwritten serials and/or calibers. The price is firm and layaway is available. $75,000 plus shipping.

.243 Winchester. Serial G151999 features a 26-inch stainless steel H-S Precision barrel with tapered target crown and .875 muzzle diameter. The stock is a right hand McMillan heavy varminter with an extra sling swivel up front for a bipod. The bolt body is jeweled. Weight is 11.2 pounds and LOP is 13.5 inches. The stock needs finish texture & paint (the consignor could never decide on color) to cover the filled right hand bolt slot, and a small impression (or flaw) on right side at inception of forend taper needs filling. It is interesting to note that this is a standard-length action with a spacer in the magazine box. CONDITION: Overall metal is 99.5%, with the slightest freckling on the very front of the trigger guard (where it meets the floorplate). This caliber was never offered in production.

.25-06 Remington. Serial number G151998 features a 24-inch barrel. Bolt body and follower are jeweled. The floorplate is marked “Super Grade”. Weight is 8.0 pounds and LOP is 13.5 inches. CONDITION: Overall metal is 99%+, with small spots of surface rust on trigger guard and cocking piece. Safety moves hard off “Fire”, but that is likely to correct with disassembly and cleaning. This caliber was never offered in production.

.270 Winchester. Serial number G152001 has a 24-inch barrel marked “Classic Sporter” on the right side. Bolt body is jeweled. Weight is 8.0 pounds and LOP is 13.5 inches. CONDITION: Overall 99.5% + with only slight evidence of handling.

7mm STW (Shooting Times Westerner). Serial number G152005 has a 26-inch barrel. Bolt body is jeweled. Weight is 8 pounds and LOP is 13.5 inches. Features include cheekpiece and single crossbolt. CONDITION: Overall 99%. Metal finish on the barrel is pristine. Finish on the receiver has some faint spots of thinning (splotches) that likely will not show in photographs. As with some of the other rifles, the cocking piece has minor indications of surface rust. Wood finish has some very small and scattered “bumps” along the butt, possibly airborne contamination that settled when the finish was still tacky. There is also a tiny finish rub at the top of the butt just ahead of the pad. This caliber was never offered in production.

.30-06 Springfield. Serial number G15200. This is the first left hand Model 70 CRF rifle ever built, even among the prototypes. Even though a Sporter stock was specified, a Featherweight stock was delivered. Both the bolt body and follower are jeweled. Barrel is 22 inches long, weight is 8 pounds and LOP is 13.5 inches. CONDITION: Overall is about 99%, with area of flecking and surface rust on cocking piece and a small area of stock finish blotching just above the rear sling swivel stud on the left side.

.300 Winchester Magnum. Serial number G152002. Barrel is 26 inches long, LOP is 13.5 inches and the stock has a single crossbolt. Barrel is marked “Classic Sporter” on right side. The bolt body is jeweled. CONDITION: Overall 99%+, with nearly perfect wood. The trigger guard as well as the forward sling swivel stud show areas of surface rust. The cocking piece has a slight trace as well.

CONDITION: Overall 99%, with two very small freckles on the barrel (left side of chamber area) and some light blotching of the receiver finish. Wood is pristine, other than a small impression on the nose due to careless bolt removal. This caliber was never offered in production.

.35 Whelen. Serial number G152007. Barrel is 24 inches long, LOP is 13.5 inches and the stock has a single crossbolt. Both bolt body and follower are jeweled. Caliber stamp unique (either struck by hand or engraved by special machine). CONDITION: 99%+. Wood is pristine. Trigger guard blue has two flecks/chips. Tiny area of tarnish on the bolt body polishing. This caliber was never offered in production.

Markings include “Classic Super Express” on barrel left and “Super Express” in gold (fill) on the floorplate. Bolt body is jeweled.
