Description: Heym is a 150 year old premium rifle manufacturer in Germany of the quality of Sako, Steyer, Sauer and other high end makers.

After WWII Heym had to move its factory, established in 1865 from Suhl (East Germany) to Munnerstadt, West Germany.

In the 1960s and 1970s Heym began manufacturing a Sako style push feed action rifle of the highest quality called the SR 20. They formed an agreement with Montgomery Ward to offer a Western Field brand version of the SR 20 for sale in the USA at Montgomery Ward stores. Not many of these rifles were made and fewer still were .270 caliber. This Western Field version of the Heym made rifle is the model 771A. This is a deluxe version with amazing wood and is the finest 771A I have ever seen.

The term "Lock, stock and barrel" applies to Heym's manufacturing philosophy. They use Krupp Steel for their barrels and make every part of every one of their rifles in house which gives them complete control over every aspect of quality. The fit, finish and hand fitting on this rifle is a great example of Heym's world renowned quality.

The wood on this rifle is the highest quality walnut, highly figured with a rich dark stain and expertly hand checkered. The wood to metal fit is world class.

Heym rifles feature floated barrels and crisp single set triggers adjusted to about 3 pounds. The rifle features a highly polished Sako style bolt that is Sako or Rem 700 smooth. The cast aluminum hinged floor plate features a regal Elk , fitting for a .270 caliber sporting rifle of this quality.

The barrel is made by Heym of Krupp Steel. Heym rifles are known for their accuracy because they make their own barrels in house to the highest quality standards.

The bolt is highly polished and very slick. The bolt handle is fluid and wonderfully knurled. It features a perfectly sized two position thumb safety which is intuitively pushed down to fire. The safety is marked "S" in white and "F" in red.

The curvature of the stock is somewhat pronounced in the design of a German stalking rifle which along with the Monte Carlo cheek piece make mounting the rifle and acquiring a target in the scope or irons sights fast and intuitive.

The trigger is crisp and light with almost no take up. The rear sights flip down. The front sight is an express style with a barrel band. The original front express sight is included and easily reinstalled and affixed with a single set screw.

The barrel is tapered and the rifle is light. Along the lines of a Winchester Featherweight or Remington Mountain rifle and equal or superior in quality. The origional buttplate is present. The rifle came from the factory with sling swivel studs installed. A button on the left side of the barreled action releases the bolt for easy removal and cleaning.

The rifling is strong and the bore is mirror. It's clear this rifle has been fired and used very little.

The rifle was drilled and tapped at the factory and comes with bases ready for the scope of your choice. I am selling the rifle and bases only. The scope and rings in the photo is not included in the sale. Standard Weaver style rings will work with the bases you will receive.

A great rifle in a great caliber from a world class maker with an interesting history as to how it made its way from West Germany to the USA.

The stampings on the rifle are very clear. Western Field Model 771A EHM .270 Cal Made in West Germany. SN 6567x

Other stamps and proof marks appear in various places on the rifle.
