Early R.G. Owen custom rifle, Springfield action in 30-06 features unbelievable detail and engraving. SN# 883, barrel marked "R.G. Owen Sauquoit. N.Y. CAL 30-06 883" .  The " Early Sauquoit Owens" as they were known were made around 1925. If you look at the pattern of engraving work over the entire rifle it follows Kornbrath style engraving, and as history lists Kornbrath did the majority of engraving jobs during this period. Please satisfy to your study. The only other engraver he used at this time was August Heym in Germany.  This rifle is in incredible and original condition.  Engraved Trap door buttplate, gorgeous stock featuring the signature arrowhead, total LOP of 13 3/8" to a checker engraved trigger. Beautifully executed cheekpiece. All screws engraved, floorplate reads "R.G. Owen Sauquoit. N.Y." Fully Engraved grip cap and horn front stock tip. Engraved barrel band sling mount, engraved ramped and hooded front sight. "GRIFFIN & HOWE, NEW YORK" engraved Detachable scope mount with thumb release levers to engraved rings holding a LEUPOLD ALASKAN 4 Scope with a duplex reticle.  Bore and crown are excellent, always stored w a snap cap released. 8.93 lbs exactly as shown  also engraved on bottom edge and marked and engraved peep sight correct to brass front bead.   Michael Petrovs' book Custom Gunmakers of the 20th Century covers Robert G Owen in the very first chapter with "representing the pinnacle of pre war custome rifle making in America" and "Owens were among the most costly custom rifles in the United States".  I believe photos tell the story, but if I have left any detail out please just ask. These rifles in such condition rarely come up for sale.  If you are a buyer CALL ME to discuss.   Another outstanding piece from The Greene Collection.  

What is 'The Greene Collection'?  A man that has built a collection that represents the best of my finds and his own over decades of collecting. A collector with a true love of the gun, fine craftsmanship and impeccable taste spanning all genres and dates that simply enjoyed acquiring the very best.   It is with great pride that I represent his collection over the coming months.  

My name is August and I am the owner. As an authorized dealer I must adhere to published retail pricing guidelines.   You will get the absolute lowest delivered price by calling my direct line. 512-567-7855.  You will get much more than that however.  I want you to get the right gun both for you and your application. You won't be passed off to a clerk, rather you will speak directly to ME.  Have the confidence you are buying the exact gun you need for your goals by discussing it with a master class competitor, instructor and fitter with over 40 years of experience in the shooting sports.  I know the guns I sell and their makers.  I visit them all and have relationships with their owners and gunsmiths.  You will know what you are getting and be happy when you do.  Thank you
 We are not open to the public so your gun has not been handled unlike retailers where guns are endlessly handled, slammed shut and clacked back on a rack countless times by the masses. I have managed firearms retail and could not stand this aspect of it. When you receive a gun from me it’s been packed with care and arrives as your NEW GUN. One person handles each gun from the time it arrives until it leaves and that is me. 
When a gun is sold it gets properly packed that day, by me with FedEx tracking sent to my client immediately. I contact your FFL FOR YOU, and handle all the paperwork.  California? No problem, I have been shipping there for over a decade. Canada and Australia- have sent many there, just ask for details. Buying a fine gun should be fun and exciting.  I don't want to sell you one gun, I want your business for life and want your referrals from building trust.  I have been the largest seller of Caesar Guerini, Syren and Fabarms for the 5th straight year because of service and value.  This is my model and I hope you give me a call.  THANK YOU for reading.
