G'Day Folks,

Being new to this Forum, I'm not sure how anti-gun this forum is?
I'm talking about Law Abiding Firearm Owner (LAFO's) related activities, like Competetive Target Shooting, Collecting, and maybe Hunting, if that's not to Politically Incorrect.

Any way, here we go.
I've been involed in various legal shooting sports, for most of my life.
I'll post a few images of some special firearms, that I own, or have had come through my hands, over the years.

Here are two custom .404 Jeffery chambered rifles.
The top rifle was made by Ross Waghorn (in Australia), in 1992.
The bottom rifle is an original but New, W.J. Jeffery (in England), made rifle.

Two custom, .404 Jeffery rifles.

That will do for the first post, just to see MBWorld's attitude to this subject.

D'oh!
Homer

Thank You for your kind comment AS.Thompson.

Well it looks like we/LAFO's are considered to be, first class citizens on MBWorld.
Thank You for that MBWorld.

Here is an uncommon Heym-Ruger HR38 rifle.
These rifles consist of a Ruger No1, single shot/falling block action.
These actions were apparently purchased, by Heym in Germany.
They were then sent to Heym, where they fitted the octagonal barrel, stocked the rifles and in this case, also engraved the metal work, fitted the claw scope mount and the Schmit & Bender, variable power scope, etc.
This particular rifle, is chambered in .308 Win.

Beautiful workmanship. Almost a shame for it to be a "daily shooter!"

Thank you again AS.Thompson.

For a bit of a change, here is a custom 1911 pistol, hand assembled from a Caspian Arms, single stack Frame and Stamascus Slide and Hammer, and a Schuemann Bull Barrel, chambered in .38 Super.

G'Day Folks,

Here is a special Kiplauff rifle, chambered in 6.5x57R, I was recently given to store and possible sell.
It was hand made by Mr Herbert Streitmeier (Dec), from St Paul, in Austria, with a two digit serial number.
It is in used condition but that was what it was designed and made for.
FYI, please notice the wood to metal fit.

G'Day Folks,

Just a bit of a change, here are some scanned images, from some old Photo's (you remember them?).
These are scenic image, from a variety of hunting trips, I made to the South Island, of New Zealand late last century (the 1990's).

G'Day Folks,

Come on folks, am I the only "Powder Burner" on MB World?
Please have a look, and post some images (of firearms or scenery) yourselves. I'm looking forward to seeing them.

In the mean time, here are some additional images, of the two .404 Jeffery chambered rifles, I first posted above.
The new W.J.Jeffery first (the Dust is Free);

G'Day Folks,

Here are some additional images, of the Ross Waghorn (R.T. Waghorn) made .404 Jeffery rifle.
Unusually, Ross Waghorn made this whole rifle, both Woodwoork and Metalwork (hence it's title; "The R.T. Waghorn Rifle").
Whilst this Australian grown, English Walnut stock is not overly extravegant, it is considered Exhibition Grade.
Please take note of, and appreciate the Wood to Metal fit.

G'Day Folks,

Im sure there must be some other "Powder Burners" on M-B World, but you might just like to keep this, to yourselves.

OK, the following rifle, would have to be one of the most stunning "Works of Art that Shoot", I have had the pleasure to import and handle.
This rifle was completely made by Mr Martin Hagn, in Canada, and then engraved by another person, a Lady whose name slips my mind at present.
The rifle itself, is based on a Martin Hagn made, falling block, single shot action, and is chambered for the venerable, .270 Winchester cartridge.
The Metalwork, Woodwork and Engraving, is as good as it gets, so please enjoy the following images.


























I hope you enjoyed this work of art........ that just so happens to shoot!

Avagreatweekendeh!
Homer

G'Day Folks,

I had to go find something to post here, and came up with this.
It is an original Westley Richards (WR), Side by Side (SxS) Double Rifle, in .500 Nitro Express.
I haven't been able to confirm the following (Yet), but this WR may have been the one owned by the Professional Hunter (PH), that took US President, Teddy Roosevelt, on Safari in Africa.
If this is true and correct, this WR would have been pressent, and possible been handled by President Roosevelt, during his African Safari.

G'Day Folks,

Just as a follow up on the above WR Double Rifle.
I have now contacted WR, asking them for details on when (the year), and for whom the above rifle was made.
I'll keep you posted.

G'Day Folks,

As discussed above, please see below for the (now edited) reply I received from Mr Ricky Bond, of Westley Richards, in the UK.

Dear Mr. (Homer),

Thank you for your email. Unfortunately there is no information recorded down in the ledger next to gun #8***. For what reason, I'm afraid I do not know.
Gun #8*** was completed in 1906.

I am sorry we couldn't be of more help on this matter.

Kind regards,
Ricky

So it appears, this is a bit of a mystery rifle .......................

D'oh!
