BSA Royal Featherweight 30-06 Rare and Extraordinary!
A superb BSA Royal Featherweight in 30-06 Caliber. One of my all-time favorites, this is an excellent example of this little known and difficult to find sporting rifle. This rifle is identical (although in much higher condition!) to the 30-06 that I carried for about 25 of my now 37 years of guiding sheep hunters here in Alaska. They are wonderfully light at just a tad over 6 pounds, shoulder and point beautifully, and NEVER fail due to their old-world craftsmanship and robust CLAW extractor. They are among the finest sporting rifles ever made and are drastically unknown and underappreciated by the average American sportsman due to the miniscule number of them that are in circulation. The specs on this one are as follows: S/N 7D3310 made in England during the mid 1950s. 22" slim profile barrel with factory milled muzzle break, slender stock with sculpted Schnabel fore-end tip, factory scalloped left receiver wall for weight reduction, factory scalloped and drilled bolt handle also for weight reduction, factory dovetailed receiver top with detent specifically designed to accept the superb Parker Hale scope mounts but several other popular brands of claw type scope mounts will work perfectly on these dovetails. The factory front sight hood and factory 3 leaf rear sight are also present. 98% Blue 98% Varnish. Note the clear wood finish and unplugged checkering. A fantastic find that you would have a very long wait to ever improve upon.
