What is not to like?

[Linked Image]

A new custom made double rifle chambered in .405 WCF, LL Bean shooting shirt, 12 year old Irish whiskey and Cal Pappas’ new book, The Double Rifle Primer. Good Times! Also time to book another trip to Africa.

A detailed post will follow in a few days with more information.

Ingwe,
Things are not always as they seem. For instance, to keep the peace around the house and to help fund the double rifle, I have put these two safe queens on the sales block;

An unfired Miroku/Winchester Deluxe 1895 .405 WCF with nice engraving and high grade wood:

CR, who made the double and what edition is that 405?

Jorge,
So far as I know, it is the same generation as my TD .405 and was part of the last batch made a few years ago.
If there is a way to look at it and be able to answer your question, with a serial number or other marking, tell me what to look for and I will do it.

I bought it from a Winchester collector on Leverguns.com that had too many guns and was thinning the herd. He told me it was unfired and I certainly have never even loaded it and the action has been worked only once since I received it( a friend who shall remain unnamed took a look at it, threw it to his shoulder, worked the lever and pulled the trigger) had it been loaded, we might have lost an eardrum.

It may have felt unloved sitting there in the safe watching lesser rifles being taken hunting. Anyhow, unless I want to start making my own breakfast, it has to go.
