Gil Van Horn 1917 Enfield Custom .460 Magnum, action is nicely polished and finished w/ a stippled front ring, has one piece Blackburn bottom metal w/ an inside the bow release and straddle floor plate, allen head screws, two steel cross bolts, heavy stud rear sling swivel and pedestal mounted slign swivel on the barrel, 18" barrel w/ integral muzzle break that makes the overall barrel length 20", custom gray GunKote type finish, idustrial strength island rear sight w/ single Express sight and is adjustable for windage and elevation, and similarly durable ramp front sight w/ very heavy duty H&H style folding sight hood, English walnut stock has beaded right hand cheekpiece, fleur de lis checkering and ebony tip on a distinctive and very robust stock shape w/ a rosewood grip cap w/ monogram "JHH". The ".460 Magnum" is a Mr. Van Horn's cretaion and is a .460 Weatherby Mag shortened to 2.5" in legnth to work on a standard .30-06 length (albeit very tough) actions. The ballistics show a 500 gr. bullet between 2250fps and 2300 fps. I think it is failry well known that Mr. Van Horn was mentor to Ryan Breeding who is also famous for his big bore rifles. I currenlty have a brand new Ryan Breeding .404 Jeffery in stock and the finish, sights, and muzzle breaks (seen on his ) are identical to this Van Horn gun's features that, I'm guessing is, 25 years old or so. Gun is in as new condtion and shows virtually no signs of being shot. The weighs 9 lbs 13.5 oz. and has a 14" LOP over a red London Guns pad.
