serial #11993, 243 Win, 22'' sporter contoured barrel with a bright excellent bore. This lovely rifle is masterfully executed and built on a 1948 FN commercial large ring Mauser action. The barrel retains about 97% excellent quality original blue with light muzzle wear and a few minute handling marks. The balance of the metal is French gray finished with the receiver and bottom metal engraved in an intertwining conifer needle and pinecone motif in full coverage with the detachable floorplate showing a leaping 10-point buck against a wooded backdrop. The bolt body and extractor have been very nicely engine turned showing virtually no wear. The bolt handle is identically engraved with the pear-shaped knob showing raised-dot grasping surfaces and its bottom neatly drilled, lightweight-style. The rifle is stocked Monte Carlo style in a nice grade of English walnut and features exceptionally executed wraparound skip-line checkering with thin ribbon and carved scroll flourish decoration. The stock itself rates excellent with a few very light dings and a flared left side cheekpiece, generous recurving ebony forend tip and a steel skeleton style buttplate, engraved identically as the balance of the arm, with neatly checkered center panels giving a 13 3/8'' length of pull. The pistolgrip is teardrop-shaped and has an engraved French gray cap with a standing pronghorn antelope. The bolt stop thumbpiece has been removed and an elongated tail added at its rear giving a very trim profile while maintaining easy release of the bolt. There are no sights but the rifle is mounted with a pair of steel Buehler bases and 1'' scope rings, engraved identically as the balance of the arm, and an adjustable commercial trigger and low scope safety are fitted. The rings mount a Kollmorgen Bear Cub 6X telescopic sight with crosshair reticle and excellent optics, the scope itself rating excellent. A fabulously-executed and very attractive sporting rifle in a versatile, light recoiling caliber, clearly set up for bean field deer or antelope. (3C9100-1501) {C&R} [Richard ''Stretch'' Kennedy Collection] (2000/3000)
