This rifle is built on a Champlin Arms magnum length action. During the 1960′s through 1980′s magnum length actions were exceptionally hard to come by, and the Champlin action patented in 1969 with its smoothness and unparalleled strength helped fill the gap, and probably explains the reason why it was chosen for this top of the line rifle.
Champlin number “426″ is stamped on bottom of receiver ring. Action features tang safety, checkered bolt knob, hinged floorplate with release in trigger guard bow, and has been fitted with Canjar trigger. Action is engraved with well cut, large, open, shaded scroll with strap work highlights. Floorplate is engraved “Model Deluxe” and “Cartridges”. SN is engraved on trigger guard bow.
Beautifully marbled and nicely figured European walnut full pistol grip stock features case hardened steel grip cap with trap, swept shadow line Monte Carlo cheekpiece, reinforcing bolt, and leather covered recoil pad. Classic H&H style point pattern checkering with mullered borders is at grip and forearm. A vacant gold oval and sling eye matching that on bbl, are on toe line. Brown cobra type leather sling is in Q-D swivels. Leupold Vari-X III 1.5 x 5 scope with duplex reticle is in engraved Redfield type rings with mounts also engraved matching action.
CONDITION: Very fine. Metal parts retain approx 90% of their original finishes, silvering and thinning from normal hand wear. Stock retains most of what appears to be its original oil finish, with area blended in where stock, broken through the wrist, has been repaired. (Stock appears to be solid.) There are a number of light marks in finish, with one or two fairly deep. Leather of pad is somewhat frayed. Bore is excellent. Action is smooth. Scope is excellent, optics clear.
