.375 double rifle by Holland & Holland with 26" barrels
This is a Holland & Holland .375 x 2 1/2″ flanged nitro express, which fires a 270 grain soft-nose bullet. I’ve shot the rifle which groups, although shoots about 3″ low at about 70 yards. The rifle has been fully restored, it has had the action and locks re-hardened, barrels and furniture re-blacked, woodwork re-chequered and oiled. The right lock is engraved with a tiger and gazelles, the left lock with a lion and wildebeest. A red stag is engraved on the bar of the action and a tiger on the bow of the trigger guard. It’s fitted with disc set strikers, a third locking bolt, a bolted auto safe, gold arrow cocking indicators and a trap in the pistol cap. The barrel tubes are engraved “Holland & Holland, 98 New Bond Street, London, Winners of all the field rifles trials, London”, and it has a standing 50 yard and 3 folding leaf sights out to 300 yards. All-in-all an impressive rifle in beautiful condition.
|CONDITION:||Finely pitted in both tubes, but groups well. 99% of its renewed hardening colour|
