|ORNATE ROYAL FERGUSON BREECH LOADER |
PRICE REDUCED FOR CHRISTMAS SALE !!!!
THIS MAY WELL BE THE FINEST CONTEMPORARY FERGUSON RIFLE EVER MADE. I HAD MY FIRST ONE MADE IN THE EARLY 80’S USING THE BARRELED ACTION BY THE ONLY MAN WHO WAS A PERFECTIONIST , MACHINIST AND HAD STUDIED THE FERGUSON IN DEPTH . STEVE SKLANEY, I HAD HIS VERY FIRST ACTION . THE GUN WAS FINISHED BY THE LATE GREAT PHIL CRAVENER OF PA. I HAD TO SELL THAT GUN ALONG THE WAY AND DECIDED IN 2006 I WANTED AN EVEN BETTER ONE . I CONTACTED MR SKLANEY WHO WAS STILL ACTIVE (NOW DECEASED ) AND TOLD HIM WHAT I WANTED . I WANTED HIS ACTION WITH A FEW IMPROVEMENTS THAT HAVE COME TO LIGHT OVER TIME AND RESEARCH.
THERE IS A MUSEUM IN ENGLAND AT THE ROYAL CASTLE THAT STILL HAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FERGUSON SPORTING RIFLE I HAD EVER SEEN AND IT WAS MADE AT THE TIME FOR THE PRINCE OF WALES WHO LATER BECAME KING GEORGE 1V. AS IT TURNED OUT MR SKALNEY HAD PERSONALLY TRAVELED TO THAT MUSEUM AND THEY HAD LET HIM EXAMINE AND HANDLE THIS PIECE AS WELL AS TAKE VERY DETAILED PICTURES. I USED THAT FOR MY BASE THAT I WANTED THE GUN TO RESEMBLE . THE FIRST RIFLE MR SKLANEY HAD MADE FOR ME HAD THE STEEL THREADED BREECH , BUT IN LIGHT OF THE NEW EVIDENCE WRITTEN IN GREAT DETAIL BY DR. DE WITT BAILEY IN HIS BOOK , BRITISH MILITARY FLINTLOCK RIFLES 1740- 1840 , THERE WERE REASONS THE OTHER CONTEMPORARY MADE GUNS WERE NOT PERFORMING AS WELL AS CAPTAIN FERGUSON'S. BUT WITH THE IMPROVEMENTS HE FOUND IT DID AND THEN SOME USING MODERN METALS.
IN APPENDIX SIX OF THIS BOOK HE TELLS THE STORY IN DETAILS . ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT POINTS WAS TO HAVE A HAND MACHINED PIECE WITH VERY CLOSE THREAD TOLERANCE AND A BRONZE THREADED BREECH PLUG AND NOT STEEL AT ALL . IN ADDITION IT NEEDED A SLIGHT TAPER. STEVE DUPLICATED ALL OF THIS FOR THIS SPECIAL FERGUSON. IF YOU READ THIS BOOK YOU WILL SEE HOW VASTLY SUPERIOR THIS ALL IS AND HOW IT MAKES THE GUN THE MARVEL IT WAS TOLD TO BE TO BE AT THE TIME. MR SKALNEY HAD TESTED THIS OUT AND CONFIRMED THE RESULTS PRIOR TO MAKING MY ACTION. THE BRONZE THREADED, TAPERED SCREW WAS IN FACT , SUPERIOR. IN ADDITION THIS CHAMBER , LIKE THE ACTUAL FERGUSON HAS A 90 GRAIN CHAMBER.
ONCE I HAD ALL OF THIS DONE I WANTED THE FINEST MAKER I COULD FIND TO COMPLETE A RIFLE OF THIS MAGNITUDE AND I CHOOSE RON SCOTT OF OREGON , ONE OF THE HIGHEST REGARDED RIFLE MAKERS IN THE WORLD AND CURRENT CLA PRESIDENT. I GAVE RON ALL THE DETAILED PICTURES MR SKLANEY HAD TAKEN AND LET RON ADD HIS TOUCHES .
THE BEAUTIFUL GOLD INLAY WORK ON THE BREECH AND BARREL IS THE SAME AS IS THE LOCK DECORATIONS , GOLD LINED PAN , GOLD VENT PLUG , SILVER HIGH RELIEF GROTESQUE MASK BEHIND THE COCK THAT ACTS AS A SAFETY , GOLD SCROLL ON THE LOCK , WITH RONS NAME ON IT IN THIS CASE , DOLPHIN FINALE ON THE PAN ET . SINGLE SET DOUBLE THROW TRIGGER. THE SIGNED BARREL FROM TIP TO BREECH IS 29 INCHES AND THE BARREL IS 68 CALIBER ACCORDING TO THE SCHEMATIC OF MR, SKLANEY’S I HAVE ( I NEVER SHOT IT ) AND HAS A GORGEOUS FIRE BLUE FINISH . THE SAME HIGH RELIEF CARVING IS BEHIND THE TANG AND THE HAND CUT CHECKERING PATTERN ON THE WRIST IS ALSO THE SAME AS THE MUSEUM GUN . THIS GUN IS ALL DONE WITH SOLID STERLING SILVER FURNITURE WITH A SCALLOPED HIGH RELIEF BUTT PLATE , LARGE ORNATE THUMB PIECE AND SILVER ROD PIPES (USED OF FOR CLEANING ETC ) THE SIDE PLATE IS STERLING WITH HIGH RELIEF SCENES. THE STEEL TRIGGER GUARD-BREECH LEVER IS HEAVILY SILVER PLATED TO MATCH THE REST OF THE HARDWARE AND STILL BE STRONG . A SOLID SILVER TURN SCREW GUARD WOULD HAVE BEEN TOO SOFT. ALL THE FURNITURE ON THIS GUN WERE PIECES RON HAD SPECIALLY MADE FOR IT IN STERLING .
THE STOCK ( 13 /12 INCH PULL ) IS AN ALMOST FULL STOCK IN EURO FASHION WITH A HORN FORE END TIP AND THE MOST FABULOUS PIECE OF BURL AND STRIPED MADRONE WOOD WAS USED FOR THE STOCK , HAND CUT BY RON SCOT FOR THIS PIECE FOR FIGURE AND STRENGTH. THE REAR SIGHT IS A COPY OF THE ACTUAL FERGUSON LONG RANGE SIGHT FROM THE ORIGINAL PIECE.
THE RIFLE SHOCKS THE SENSES WITH THE BEAUTY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP AND THE UNIQUE HAND MADE ACTION BY A MASTER MACHINIST , ONE AT A TIME WITH THE SUPERIOR TAPERED MARINE BRONZE BREECH PLUG AS DESCRIBED FOUND IN A FERGUSON BY DR BAILY MAKES THIS I BELIEVE THE ONLY PIECE LIKE IT IN THE WORLD . NEVER FIRED BY ME , JUST PROOFED AND TEST FIRED BY ME SKLANEY . IT COMES WITH A HAND MADE WOVEN SLING AND ORNATE SILVER PLATED BUCKLE . $8,900 PLUS POSTAGE TO YOUR LOCATION . NO TRADES , NO PAYMENTS , IF YOU ARE THE KIND OF COLLECTOR WHO ONLY HAS THE BEST PIECES AND YOU HAVE THE LIQUID CASH TO BUY THE GUN NOW AND WANT IT , MESSAGE ME AND ILL SEND YOU MORE PICTURES.
