WINSLOW - Crown E+ 375 WBY Mag w/ Rhino Horn Inlay
$ PRICE REDUCED
This is a "ONE-OF-A-KIND" early 1960's vintage Special Order Winslow Crown Custom in Ultra-Rare .375 Weatherby Mag. caliber with engraving and a "Dahl Sheep Ram's Head" inlay on the bottom of the triggerguard. Not sure if the inlay is Platinum, White Gold, or other precious metal. (see insert in pictures)
The Custom Plainsman Stock is deep-color "Tiger-Striped" with Rosewood Forend Tip and Grip Cap. Full coverage Hand Carved "Basket-Weave" pattern with borders of Scroll "Oak Leaves & Acorns". All carving was done by Winslow's Famed in-house Stock-Maker, "Nils Hultgren" who initialed this work with "N.H." at the border of the carving. (see oval insert in pictures) The Stock wood is "Reddish" in color and not sure if it is also Rosewood or some other exotic wood. Original Winslow recoil pad with white-line Ivory and Ebony spacers throughout.
In addition to the usual Ivory & Ebony inlays, this Stock has a "Charging Tiger" inlay of what I've been told is "Carved Rhino Horn" in a Black Ebony background inlay - The custom carved inlay is signed "N.Hultsgren" by Nils himself. (see oval insert in pictures) Conversations with the Winslow Factory have indicated that in the early days of Custom Gun building, Rhino Horn was just another one of the optional Exotic materials that was available along with Ivory, Pearl, Abalone, Tortise, etc.
This Factory Custom rifle was built on an early Belgium FN action with its original factory Finland Trigger.
This rifle has its original Factory installed 2.5x-8x Bosh & Lomb Balvar 8A Scope w/ adj base and original caps.
Condition looks to be un-fired with metal in near 100
% original factory Deep Blue finish. Stock is Vintage "Mint" with minor handling marks. The aging finish is starting to show some "haze" that will likely clean-up, but it has been left as found.
This rare Winslow rifle has been a "Safe-Queen" its entire life and is ready to be the "Shining Star" of any Vintage Weatherby or Winslow Collection.
Rifle comes with a photocopy of Winslow's hand written ledger entry for this rifle including its production number.
