Item Description: Translate description
serial #1367797, 30-06, 24" barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain about 97% original blue, the loss is due primarily to some light high edge wear and even fading, slightly more prevalent on the bottom metal which shows a few more light handling marks. The bolt body remains bright with the armory polish still vivid, the knob and handle are similar, the knob with a couple very very light oxidation spots. The shroud still shows some very good oil quenched color case-hardening and the safety is a nice two-tone blue and case-hardened gray. The top of the barrel is marked "Griffin & Howe, Inc. New York". The rifle is remodeled classic style and features nice wrap-over patterns at the grip with mullered front borders while the forearm pattern is a wrap-around with mullered front and rears. There is a very nice horn forend tip, blued steel gripcap and a checkered steel buttplate giving a 13 3/8" length of pull. The rifle has a detachable swivel stud along the toeline with a nice barrel band stud soldered ahead of the forend and it is equipped with simple magnum crossbolts, one showing remnants of some light case-hardening; the remnant of the front swivel base hole has been neatly filled by G&H just ahead of their swivel stud. The rifle is sighted with a banded sporting ramp front which supports a simple bead sight and a heavily knurled hood is in place while the rear ring shows a nice Lyman aperture sight. The rifle comes with a Springfield Research Service letter showing that this arm shipped as a 1903 Sporting Model to a Mrs. Margaret Dyer in Kodiak Alaska in September 1931. Doubtless Mrs. Dyer forwarded the arm to Griffin & Howe for the nice sporterizing and customization. Really a very handsome Griffin & Howe sporter in a lovely state of condition that doubtless shoots wonderfully. (36649-1) {C&R}
