A Hunter's .470 Double

A Hunter's .470 Double

The rifle was developed as a top-grade, traditional double rifle that would actually see hard hunting use in the bush.


Gunmaker: Tony Fleming started with a Searcy action, which he trimmed, shaped and refined to achieve the look of a 20th century boxlock. He also added a new safety button, converted the latch to an Anson plunger and added an escutcheon to help secure the wood. 


Stockmaker: Glenn Morovits crafted the Turkish walnut blank chosen for its dark background, subtle contrast and tight grain. He added a leather recoil pad and checkered it in a 24 lpi point pattern with mullered borders.

Engraver: Larry Peters employed an English scroll, using a Joseph Lang & Son boxlock .577 as inspiration. A touch of gold is added at the safety.
