Full custom .375 Ruger built on a Brno 21 double square bridge commercial Mauser action with a 24" all integral feature barrel by the late Ike Ellis of Idaho Falls. This barrel has an integral banded ramp front sight, integral banded sling stud, and integral quarter rib. None of these will fall off or fail in the field. Quarter rib and front ramp with stippled surfaces to avoid reflected light on the sight plain. The action was barrelled by Rube Wells of Prescott, AZ. Action features include Jerome Glimm bolt handle with five checkered panels, Blackburn drop box bottom metal with straddle floorplate and trigger bow release, and a Timney fully adjustable trigger. Topped with Alaska Arms lever release rings in the Burgess style with a Swarovski Habicht 3x9x36 scope with duplex. Stocked by Bruce Dawson of West Plains, MO in a very nice piece of English Walnut with significant fiddleback figure in the butt. Shadow line pancake cheekpiece, 24 LPI point pattern checkering with mullered border, steel pistol grip cap, and ebony forend tip. 13 1/2" LOP to a Silver's type pad. 9lb 4oz as scoped.
This is an extremely nice piece by a group of excellent craftsmen and built the way a Safari rifle should be. It was used on two Buffalo, two Zebra, Cookson Wildebeast, Warthog , and Kafue Lechwe in Zambia in 2020. It remains in nearly new condition.
