When we talk about big bore single shot rifles, we tend to talk about American Buffalo Rifles and not so much about Nitro Express rifles. It is so nice to see some elegant old nitro express rifles.  I have a 500NE and I am thinking abnout a 9.3x74r. 
Thanks for sharing,

Hi kid:

Thanks for the Swinburn photos. 

I have one out being restored right now. Very similar engraving pattern.

Yes I will.
Got a table or two with Steve Bertram.
I plan on having mostly guns there I want to sell but can bring out any that you have an interest in seeing too.
I really need to build a couple good display racks.  I hate having them just laying on the table.

Here's a 500NE that didn't make the lineup.
Army & Navy 500 3"

And a Holland and Holland 500/450
Such a lovely rifle but I can't bring myself to show the sad part of it...

Very nice.  I would love to have one good example of a British single shot sporting rifle.  Itís been on my list for awhile without success yet.  I blame Ross Seyfried for many of my bucket list items.

Nothing much, just a little scratch in the stock...

Anybody know how to resize my photos?  For some reason they are coming up too big.

Yes, a real shame although I think it happened early in the life of the rifle and that is why the metal is in such excellent condition.
It was poorly screwed back together with wood screws and brass plates but I doubt anybody tried to shoot it with that repair.
As it is, it really needs a restock as a repair that will work is doubtful.

Thanks for the photo's and yes, well worth a new stock.

I was curious because I have one nearly completed in .375 flanged magnum. I started with a rather plain, border engraved 2nd model, so it will never hold a candle to your high-grade takedown.

Sorry, no pictures, the barrel is out for engraving.

Huvius,
That is a crying shame!  But the fact the metal is near immaculate shape is definitely a plus!
Sending you a PM with the name of a fella not to far from you that may be worth considering for restocking this.

Don't suppose there is a dent on the comb from the lion's skull that he broke the stock over after his gun bearer ran off with the ammo?

Huvius,
That is the most extrodinary collection of British rifles I have seen since my two week visit to London in 2011.I took two days and visited their National Rifle Association at Bisley and was given a personal tour of grounds as well as seeing the rifles they do not display.It was an experience I will never forget.
