Capstick's "The Last Ivory Hunter" Wally Johnson's pre-war Model 70 .375 H&H  Guns > Rifles > Custom Rifles > Bolt Action
Description: Winchester Model 70 .375 H&H Magnum from the Wally Johnson estate. Mr. Johnson is the subject of Peter Hathaway Capstick's biography "The Last Ivory Hunter" and this was his most-used hunting rifle. Serial 13997 was made in 1938 and is certainly among the most historic and important hunting firearms ever offered, as it was used to take countless elephants and other dangerous game during Wally's storied career. After becoming a professional hunter, Wally carried it when guiding an impressive list of clients which included Robert Ruark. Warren Page, Fred Huntington, Jack Lott and Fred Bear, as well as while hunting with Harry Manners. As is expected, its condition reflects generations of hard use - but it remains perfectly operational. Recent issues of Safari (Nov/Dec '15) Sports Afield (May/June '15) and Petersen's Hunting (April/May '15) detailed every aspect of this rifle, and copies are included with the purchase. Also included are personalized a letter of authenticity from Wally's son, Walt, plus an impressive selection of large laminated photographs of Wally with his famous clients and some of his best trophies. Walt Johnson will also personally inscribe a copy of Capstick's book for the purchaser. Finally, the Johnson family is including their framed print (27/500) of Guy Coheleach's "The Last Ivory Hunt" elephant print (which appears in the limited edition of Capstick's book). The price is firm and reasonable time purchases will be considered. Photos are available by request.
