Seller's Description

Rare J.Shannen 263 Sabre Rifle.

This is a J Shannon custom rifle from Tacoma WA, the name of the cartridge dates it. Named after the Sabre Jet. It is a 6.5 on a 06 case a 263 sabre if you will! this rifle is the most elaborate of any of his I have seen. He passed years ago, I have owned 2. this gun very neat with its 22 inch barrel, I have dies and scads of ammo WHICH COST EXTRA TO SHIP BECAUSE THERE IS A AMMO BOX FULL. Now! the gun appears to have ivory inlays with real nice checkering! the checkering almost covers a wrist crak that has been repaired. One very fast 6.5 cal! loads are in the 59+- gr's of powder area!! It is not butchered whatsoever but it does have 4 rear scope mount holes! Action is FN and dated 1953 This gun has been hunted with for 40 years and is a MOA shooter, the checkering is showing it's age by being slightly smoothed. Has a canjar trigger, and jeweled bolt and follower. In Tacoma WA this rifle is highly sought after! and owners will not part with them, they collect them! there were 4 I think cartridge designations and this is most sought after. 253 572 2186 20.00 SHIPPING ffl required. enjoy this piece of american history. THIS RIFLE HAS HAD A STOCK REFINISH SINCE THESE PICS! IF INTERESTED AND WOULD LIKE NEW PICS LET ME KNOW BUT PLEASE BE SERIOUS. M.O.
