Remington 700 Police rifle S/H
Calibre: .308 Winchester
The Remington 700 Police is the classic long range rifle.
These rifles are finished to a far higher standard than the stock 700s using selected barrels with extra fitting and tolerance checks being more akin to a custom Remington than a production rifle. The rifle is fitted to an Kevlar and fibre glass, aluminium bedding block HS precision stock that will stay dimensionally stable in all conditions.
This particular rifle has been further worked upon by Roger Francis having the barrel’s face and crown checked and trued along with improved trigger work.
The rifle is in excellent condition with a low, just over 500, round count. It comes complete with a Harris bipod, it is fitted with a Sportec scope rail which mounts a US made Leupold VAR-X 111 3.5-10×40 long range scope. A bargain package of an almost new rig ready to shoot consistently small groups at all ranges, just add ammunition and your shooting skill.
Ruger Old Army Black Powder Pistol S/H
This pistol is an excellent example of one of the best made modern black powder revolvers. Ruger’s Old Army is legendary in black powder circles for its robust and fine construction, strength and accuracy. This pistol is in stainless steel and has seen very little use being very clean overall. It has adjustable for windage rear sights; ramp fore sight and the chamber has excellent lock up.
Ruger no longer makes the Old Army so these are now becoming very collectable so here is your chance to own one of these fine revolvers.
The pistol comes with its original case, 6 new Ruger replacement nipples, priming cap dispenser, original Ruger nipple key, plastic load phials x 19 (not shown in the photograph). Wooden range box felt lined with multiple compartments, strap and 20-60 spotting scope which fits to the box lid for spotting on the range. A nice package and a real bargain at this price.
The Mauser Karabiner (K) 98 was the main battle rifle of the German forces from 1935 through to the end of the second world war with some 11 millions being manufactured in several variants.
Chambered for the ubiquitous 8mm Mauser cartridge it gave the Axis forces excellent service during the second world war. Derived as a short rifle (Karabiner) from the Gewher (G) 98 long rifle of the first world war using the very strong bolt mechanism and high quality production especially in pre world war two rifles.
At the end of the second world war millions of Wehrmacht rifles were captured by Russian forces and in the post war uncertainty of Europe most were refurbished by the Soviets to help equip them and their satellite forces in the event of a further European conflict.
This particular rifle is a fine example of the type being originally an Brunn (Czechoslovakia) rifle made in 1944 with the barrel and receiver still matching and keeping its original stamps along with the Russian crossed rifles “X” stamp. The bolt is electro pencilled to the receiver serial as was the norm with Russian capture refurbs.
The rifle is in very good overall condition with an excellent bore that shoots very well and to point of aim with Prvi Partizan ammunition.
Interestingly the woodwork appears to be one of the rarer laminated stock types.
An honest clean example of the Swiss armies last general issue model bolt action rifle, the rifle was adopted for service in 1932 with production running from 1933 through to 1958 with some rifles remaining in service until the 1970s.
The rifle had forward locking lugs on the bolt engaging with the receiver making for a stronger action than its predecessors, the barrel was also free floating making it cheaper to manufacture than the model 1911 which it replaced.
These rifles are noted for their accuracy and are very popular for military rifle competitions. Factory ammunition is readily available for this calibre.
This rifle is of 1936 manufacture, all matching, in very good overall condition, the woodwork has wear comemensurate with the age and a rifle that has been carried a lot, it has a bright bore and strong rifling and comes complete with sling. It also has the owner’s identification paper under the butt plate.
A very nice 1949 made model EG of the classic Savage under lever rifle.
The 1899 was a popular sporting rifle and was developed from its predecessor the model 1895 which was first hammerless lever action gun ever produced.
The rifle is fitted with and internal rotary magazine that holds 5 cartridges that helps the rifle balance well in the hand, it also allows the use of pointed bullets. The internal magazine design makes for a stronger action which meant that the 1899 was ideally suited to handling high pressure cartridges. During it’s almost 100 years in production the 1899 was chambered for over 14 different cartridges including the 308 Winchester with over 1 million rifles being produced.
This rifle is chambered in the .300 Savage calibre. This fine 30 calibre round was introduced in 1920 specifically for the Savage 1899. A popular sporting cartridge in the USA it was the parent round to the 7.62 NATO which is an “improved” 300 Savage. This round almost reaches 7.62 NATO ballistics being only 100 fps slower.
The rifle is in very good overall condition with a good barrel being bright and having strong rifling, the woodwork being nicely figured. It is fitted with Weaver scope blocks, buckhorn rear sight and blade and bead foresight. There is professional pinning and dowelling to the wrist, there is no visible crack that this work relates to and was done sometimes to prevent wrist cracking due to over tightening of the tang screw. The wrist on this rifle is now stronger than when it left the factory.
Dies and cases are available for purchase with this rifle.
In my youth as a stalker on the hill these guns were estate issue firearms for all red deer shooting, in those days rifle mounted glass for stalkers was frowned upon. The head keeper would say “you are stalkers not bloody target shooters, if you cannot get in close enough to see separate hairs on a deer then you shouldn’t be on my hill. All our shots were taken at under 150 yrds over open sights, thousands of hinds were taken over the seasons with these, all being one shot kills, wounded beasts were never tolerated and could cost you your job. So you made sure that you always got in close enough to be certain. This maxim still holds true today.
I still use one of these rifles as my main red deer rifle albeit now mounted with an Ajack 2x scope mainly for its light gathering qualities.
This gun is a nice clean example with good looking woodwork and even bluing, the Monte Carlo stock, contrasting wood fore end tip and white spacers make for a handsome rifle.
The rifling is strong and has it shoots well, it has a Parker Hale scope mount and rings and carries a Hawke 3-9x scope.
These guns have to be some of the best shooting bargains out there, with the Parker Hale sporter barrels having a reputation for more than hunting accuracy, they make fine range and/or stalking rifles that will give much pleasure for very little money.
A classic piece of British firearms history for only.
The Mortimer rifle was the pinnacle of flintlock rifle design incorporating weather proof ignition pan, roller bearing mounted frizzen and a lock safety.
Pedersoli’s Mortimer is one of their top of the line models having excellent quality fit, finish and materials as well being a faithfull reproduction of the originals both internally and externally.
This particular rifle is in very good condition with some gentle wear that adds to the patina of the rifle. Being the “target” version it comes with a contemporary to the period aperture rear sight, adjustable for windage and elevation, this is matched with a globe fore sight to enable the shooter to make the most of this guns inherent accuracy.
It has nice dark wood work with a plum brown finish to the metal and a striking colour case hardened lock, the barrel is half round/half octagonal with bore in excellent condition. Being of the heavier calibre “.54” and carefully loaded with a matched ball and patch it will shoot well out to 200yrds.
These firearms are currently retailing new at £1,600 so this is a real bargain at £825.
