Description: Griffin & Howe .375 H&H Magnum built on a magnum Mauser action. Griffin & Howe number 745 is stunning dangerous game rifle with superb appointments. The 24-inch barrel has a matted ramp front sight with brass bead, gracefully banded sling swivel stud and a matted quarter rib with one standing and two folding leafs regulated for 100/200/300 yards. The action is a true magnum Mauser (9.25-inches long) with single square bridge, integral bases with sighting notch (to clear open sights), sculpted drop box bottom metal (4+1 capacity) with inside-the-bow release button, two-position knurled wing safety, jeweled bolt body and follower, checkered (two panels) bolt knob and finely-checkered trigger shoe. The stock is fashioned from an exhibition grade English walnut blank shot through with dark ribbons. Accents include an ebony forend tip, wrap-around 24 lines-per-inch checkering with double border, English pancake cheekpiece with wrapping shadow line, leather-wrapped recoil pad, steel grip cap and inletted pedestal sling swivel stud. Additional accenting touches include niter blued bolt release lever and screws. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 9.0 pounds, length of pull is 13.8 inches. Drops are 1.5 and 1.75 inches from the top of the integral bases. MARKINGS: "No. 745 Griffin & Howe, Inc. New York" on rib, ".375 Magnum" on chamber left, "105306" behind the barrel lug, "73688" and what appears to be "E3B" on the underside of the barrel, and either "L87" or "187" on both the underside of barrel and front ring. IMPORT MARKINGS: A tiny "BV Linden WA USA shows on the underside of the barrel just ahead of the forend tip and "114" appears on the lower right front ring, suggesting it was imported from Canada. HISTORY: Per the Griffin & Howe historian, no records exist. CONDITION: It appears this rifle was completely refurbished by Griffin & Howe at some point. Careful examination of the action (inside) indicates the presence of filled side mount attachment points. The bore is virtually new, which combined with the slender contour suggests it was replaced using the original sights and banded stud. Metal finish is about 99 percent, with only slight indications of use. Wood finish is 99% as well, while wood integrity is about 98 percent due to a scattering of minor scuffs and field impressions. The price is firm and layaway is available. Complete photo package by request (include direct email address).
