Model of 1910 .280 Sporting Rifle
Category : C
Caliber : .280 Ross
A rare “Sporting Rifle” built by Ross – Canada on their mod.1910 action and chambered for the flat shooting .280 High Velocity.
The straight pull 1910 action is incredibly smooth. Maneuvering the short rear lever unlocks the six lugs bolt head and the feeding is so easy that it’s difficult to know if the magazine is fully loaded or empty!
A small safety lever, marked SAFE and READY blocks the firing pin.
The 26″ barrel sports a folding, platinum lined, single leaf rear sight inscribed 0-500.Yds regulated on a Marble front bead fitted to a banded support. A little peep sight folds down in the rear bridge of the action and pops up when pushing a small latch.
An Hensoldt Wetzlar “Duralyt” 6×42 R.1 scope is fitted to the left side with a 1932 Griffin & Howe quick detachable mount.
The nicely figured French walnut slim classic stock displays a schnabel tipped forend, a slender capped grip and a 13?” LOP on the steel buttplate.
All the metal parts retain the greater part of the original rust blue finish and the bore is mirror like.
A lot of .280 cartridges and a set of RCBS reloading dies are furnished with that rifle that weights 7lbs 8oz alone & 8lbs 10oz scoped.
Price (€) : 8000
