Item Description: Translate description
serial #5365, 32-40, 30" octagon No. 5 weight barrel with a near excellent bore that is bright and shows a little light frosting just ahead of chamber. This rifle shows several Zischang improvements, the most obvious is the barrel which is engraved on top flat "A.O. ZISCHANG SYRACUSE, N.Y.". The rifle also is equipped with Zischang custom double set triggers, a takedown pin was neatly added to the frame along with a stud on left side which acts as a base for a breech seater. Additionally, the tang sight base has been widened and the retaining screw modified and now when the tang sight retaining pin is turned, the staff adjusts for windage traversing on the threaded retaining pin. The rifle is equipped with a factory Remington stock which is equipped with a Swiss buttplate, both the stock and buttplate are numbered "1975". The forend has been nicely modified to fit this heavier barrel and sits upon the bottom three flats. The condition of the rifle is quite nice with the barrel retaining 95% original blue finish with some silvering along the high edges. There are no additional holes or other alterations to the barrel. The action retains 95% wonderful original color case-hardened finish. The walnut stocks rate excellent and appear to be nicely refinished long ago with sharp checkering, a nice factory cheekpiece and one stable crack on right side emanating from the top buttplate screw and being about 4 1/2" in length slowly tapering toward the comb. The crack is tight, only on one side and seems very stable. The bottom of the forend shows two neatly filled holes which held a palm rest at some point. The rifle is sighted with a windgauge spirit level front, there is no provision for rear sight, and a mid-range Vernier tang mounted peepsight with previously mentioned modification is in place. The top of the buttplate is engraved with what is presumably a previous owner "Harry / St. John". Zischang modified Hepburn rifles are exceedingly rare, in his years of collecting this is the only example Mr. Greatbatch had found. (16106-69) {C&R} [Warren Greatbatch Collection]
