Default WTS: Custom 280 Ackley Improved Hambrusch rifle + S&W 8 3/8" 27-2 .357 mag

A beautiful custom rifle by Hambrusch of Ferlach, Austria, built on a commercial FN Mauser action. The engraved action has a tang safety and double square bridge scope bases holding a West German Zeiss Diavari-C 3-9x36 scope with German T* coated lenses. The 1" Talley rings are detachable. The 1/3 octagon 2/3 round 22" barrel chambered in 280 Ackley Improved has an excellent bore, integral top rib, integral front sight base and is extremely accurate. There is an engraved 3 round cartridge trap inletted into the toe of the stock and the floorplate is fully engraved. The rifle is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition, has a few handling marks on the European walnut stock and has a very interesting history. Length of pull to the original horn buttplate is 13 1/4". Peter Hambrusch in Ferlach quoted a current cost to build a comparable rifle of $13,000 plus the cost of scope, scope rings and shipping with a six month production period. Now posted elsewhere. Forum rules apply.

Collector grade S&W 8 3/8" model 27-2 .357 magnum. This revolver has probably been fired since leaving the factory in the late 1970s, but still retains all of its original factory bright blue except for a very light cylinder turn line. Comes with its original Goncalo Alves target presentation stocks, and its .500" target hammer and trigger. Cylinder timing, lock up and bore condition are all as new. No presentation case or paperwork, but an extremely nice example of a pinned and recessed pre-lock, pre-MIM 27-2 with forged parts. Additional photos available via email upon request.
