Special Hornet

Special Hornet

American Custom Gunmakers Guild Firearm* No. 24

The Winchester Low Wall Takedown in .22 Hornet is presented in a special single-shot style meant for target shooting or small game hunting and as such is a dedicated scoped rifle with a Unertl 8X on top.

Gunmaker: Roger Ferrell made the Damascus steel inserts for the schnable fore-end and grip cap, with miniature hornets in place of the customary ebony. The 28-inch half-octagonal barrel is cold rust blued. Ferrell did all the metalwork and coloring.


Stockmaker: The American black walnut stock by Al Lind is a super exhibition crotch-grain checkered at 24 lpi in a modified point pattern with mullered borders and a ribbon in the fore-end. The Swiss buttplate is steel.

*A series of guns commissioned by the American Custom Gunmakers Guild (www.acgg.org) and raffled off in the past as fundraisers. We're presenting these as examples of rifles as art, not as objects for sale. Photo courtesy American Custom Gunmakers Guild.


Engraver: Jerome Glimm did the 1800s-style subdued scroll covering receiver, finger lever and accent areas--using only a chaser's chisel and gravers, just as was done in the period.
