Item Description: Translate description
serial #6348 (Alx. Martin#7575), 375 Express 2 1/2”, 27” barrel with a bright excellent bore. The barreled action retains about 97% maker blue with the barrel toning to plum. The races in the receiver are a pewter patina with some very light oxidation staining. The bolt body retains very good original blue with the knob toning to brown while the bottom metal retains 65% original blue with front and rear fading to plum. The English walnut stock is classic style and rates very good plus with the expected minor handling marks and dings from the years; there is an unobtrusive repair to an old chip just to the rear of the tang. There is a nice accenting horn pistolgrip cap and forend tip with nice checkered wrap-around patterns at grip and forend, the edges softening a little. The length of pull to the smooth steel buttplate is 14 5/8” and the arm is equipped with quick detachable sling swivel eyelets. The rifle is sighted with a small silver bead atop a sporting ramp front with a nice two-leaf express rear sight with silver index lines. The arm was drilled and tapped for a set of quick-detach scope rings which support a Germanic looking telescopic sight which has been neatly engraved with the riflemakers name “Alexr Martin, Glasgow & Aberdeen/Incorporated With/Alexr Henry & Co. Edinburgh”; the top of the barrel as well is maker engraved in an identical fashion. The scope is fading to plum showing some very light surface oxidation with flaking enamel on the ocular lense, the optics are very good and the reticle is post and crosshair. The rifle comes cased in what is likely its original leather luggage case with makers label and leather carry tube for scope. The case rates very good with the expected scuffing and handling marks from the years. The carry handle has come detached. Included with the arm are two boxes of unprimed virgin brass. Really a super antique arm from a time when telescopic sporting sights were in their infancy, suitable for most all North American big game and all plains species in Africa.

Estimate: 2500 - 4000
