Description

Magnificent Remington Custom Shop Rifle, Model 8 E Grade, marked .300 SAV. Cal., MFG. 1911, SN: 17XXX, Semi-Auto Rifle, 22'' barrel, This rifle, invented by John Browning, was America's first successful semi auto high-power rifle. 4 shot fixed magazine. These take down rifles were often broken down into the 22'' & 20'' halves & placed into leather cases for train rides to countryside hunts & shoots. This ''Expert or E'' grade rifle was delivered from the custom shop in 1910 & was hunted with by the owner his entire life. The rifle was passed down to his son upon his death & the son returned the rifle to the Ilion, NY custom shop in January of 1952 to be fully restored & the caliber to be updated to the newest offering of .300 SAV. After restoring to mint factory specs, the rifle was stored away never to be shot again. It remained with the family until years ago when it was sold to the cosigner who stored it until consigned to this auction. The special order rifle has imported high grade english walnut stock & forearm, which are excellent with beautiful figure to the grain, Factory checkering is 22 lines-per-inch & is crisp & sharp. Retains 100% factory finish without blemish. Factory inlaid silver name plate in stock is blank. The metal blue finish is fully 99%+ on all surfaces. All working parts are hand polished. The large receiver side panels are covered with what Remington marketed as ''deep rich scroll hand engraving with a game panel on the left side of receiver.'' The game panel on this rifle is of a big horn mountain sheep. Engraving also found on base of magazine, safety, trigger guard, tangs & barrel jacket. Bore is mint. Factory sights, Extremely rare rifle & highly collectible in this condition. FFL or C&R Req. - Value: 7500 to 15000
