Rising Block Double rifle
.450 3 1/4
Beautifully balanced and quick handling for a rifle with 26" barrels. Stunning slab sawn Turkish walnut stock that is both hard and dense. Will have great color and strong contrast when finished. It displays light curl, lots of depth and tight grain. Only a light coat of oil is applied in the pictures. This is an upgraded stock that I am offering at no extra cost.
The rifle is completely operational, ready to be finished to your specifications. Stock dimensions are set at 1" drop at the comb, 2.2" at the heel, with 1/4" cast off. With a recoil pad, length of pull can be set up to 15" or shorter as required. I can also bend the stock to fit if needed.
Engraving can range from my standard 60% English scroll coverage to elaborate exhibition level.Standard engraving is included in the price, extra engraving would add.
$18,500 buys the rifle, with $12,000 upfront, and $6000 due upon completion. The Delivery of the rifle will be within 6 months of agreement to engraving and stock specifications being established. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions 903 746 0004
Rising Block Single Shot rifle
7X65R Rising block single shot. Color case hardened Rising Block action machined from 8620 steel. Delicate English scroll engraving with 22k gold inlay borders. Barrel block and cavity are wire EDM cut for precision. Bushed firing pin, coil spring driven striker and an excellent trigger set at 2 lbs. Shilen barrel with quarter rib, sculpted sling swivel band and front sight base.The quarter rib has talley style dovetails machined in. One standing/one folding rear sight, front sight is small bead with flip up night site.
Beautiful and dense Turkish walnut stock with hand rubbed oil finish, 22lpi checkering. Pachmeyer decelerator pad and sunburst grip cap. The extractor works very well and will eject the case with a quick opening of the action. The safety blocks both the trigger and the sear, making the rifle very safe. 7X65R is and excellent cartridge, very similar in performance to the .280 Remington.
With the upgraded wood quality and gold inlays, this rifle would normally be priced at $10,000. In an effort to get this new action design into customers hands, I have priced the rifle without the $1500 in upgrades.
All of the work was done by me in my show with exception of drilling and rifling the barrel.
Price: $8500 reduced to $6000
