This is a custom rifle made in the shop of Butch Searcy, one of the current top American makers of double and magazine rifles for African hunting. This rifle is built on a pre-64 Controlled Round Feed action that has been re-machined to Butch's tolerances for reliability, accuracy, and smooth operation. It is fitted with a barrel-band sling mount and open sights that appear to be from NECG (New England Custom Guns). All the rest of the metalwork is beaded matte stainless in appearance, and may be NP-3 coating based on the tint to the finish.
Searcy rifles are known for their no-nonsence reliability, and over 40 African PHs carry and depend on Searcy rifles to protect themselves and their clients.
New Searcy Magazine rifles go well upwards of $8,000. I will include an email I received from Butch telling me this rifle is worth "at least $4,000".
I have dies and loaded A-Square ammunition for the 416 Hoffman caliber that will be made available for sale to the buyer of this fine rifle.
I will ship direct as an individual to your FFL, including my photo DL and NJ Firearms ID,. If your state or dealer requires shipment FROM an FFL, costs may be higher.
