SCI to Auction Rifle Number Five in Series of Five World Heritage Guns at the 47th SCI Hunters’ Convention
The fifth and last of five rifles in the World Heritage Rifle Series – representing the Americas – is a .338 Winchester Magnum, donated by John Bolliger’s Mountain Riflery Inc. The rifle will be auctioned at the 47th SCI Hunters’ Convention to be held in Reno, Nevada, January 9-12, 2019.
The World Heritage Rifle Series consists of five spectacular rifles, each representing the best of the gunmaker’s art and one of the world’s five hunting continents, Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, and the Americas, and featuring materials representing its continent.
The Americas rifle is built on a highly-refined Pre 64 Winchester Model 70 action, full coverage engraving and complemented by an exquisite stock of highly-figured exhibition grade Turkish walnut in the Bolliger Custom style. It is equipped with a Swarovski Z8i 1.7-13.3X42 scope.
It comes with a custom credenza for display, donated by Tom Julian and Sons, built from hand-selected figured walnut, with accessories including custom tools, cleaning rod and accessories along with scope storage.
The .338 Winchester Magnum is the classic American caliber for this top of the line exhibition rifle that would be the pride of any gunroom.
“It has been an honor being a part of the World Heritage Rifle Series. This rifle will forever hold a special place in my heart. It’s hard to explain the joy working side by side with my father once again creating this stunning rifle dedicated to the country we both love and treasure so much,” says Bolliger.
