serial #19175, 270 Win, 24'' barrel with a bright excellent bore. The barreled action retains about 95-97% G&H blue, the loss due primarily to even fading, more prominent toward the front half of the barrel. The bolt body retains lovely uniform cross-hatch burnishing, as does the extractor, remaining bright on the receiver ways and magazine follower. The bolt knob shows some light toning to pewter on its sharp edges. The bottom metal shows more wear and is primarily a plum brown overall with toning to pewter gray on the bow, with some scattered light oxidation and a few light handling marks. The G&H-style English walnut stock rates excellent with a generous rounded left side shadowline cheekpiece and the signature bone forend tip and blued steel gripcap with unmistakable G&H architecture throughout. The stock shows a minor handling mark here or there but they are unobtrusive and it features wraparound checkering patterns at both grip and forearm with mullered borders, flawlessly executed with a couple dings within, the silver oval monogram plate along the toeline is neatly engraved a ''ESJ''. Rifle features a G&H style sling swivels (included) and has been fitted with a nice engraved checkered steel trapdoor buttplate for a 13 3/4'' length of pull. The rifle features a Lyman gold bead front sight, Lyman No. 6 dual leaf folding rear sight and a bolt shroud-mounted aperture sight professionally fitted. The left side of the action has a Griffin & Howe quick detach single lever telescopic base, used by G&H for only two years, 1927 and 1928, when it was supplanted by the double lever mount. There is a Zeiss Dialyt 2 3/4X telescopic sight mounted with post and crosshair reticle and excellent optics. The scope itself rates very fine showing just some light wear and even fading with a bit of flaking around the brass lens keepers. The barrel is not Griffin & Howe marked nor are there any other internal markings on the stock, but a detailed study of the arm leaves no doubt as to its maker and Mr. Mike Petrov himself has mentioned more than once that most G&H rifles were marked, but not all, especially in that ''depression-era'' term when G&H were doing ''budget'' customizations to keep the rack full. A very classic precursor to the Model 70 that would've made Jack O'Connor proud to own. (3B9354-11) {C&R} (2500/3000)
