Description: John Bolliger has earned a place atop the roster of master rifle builders. And his has not been an overnight success. This rifle was built in 1996 and exhibits every bit of the artistry and skill his rifles display today. And lest you think his rifles are "all show and no go," this rifle started out with a super strong FN Mauser action fitted with a Douglas Premium barrel with an integral muzzle brake/cap. The rear sight sits on an island atop a handsomely matted quarter rib, and the front sight is a hooded ramp-style with bead. The metal package is completed with premium bottom metal and a Bolliger trap grip cap. The barrel, bottom metal, bolt handle and shroud wear a beautiful rust blue by Rick Stickley. Bright jeweling covers the bolt body and magazine follower, and the bolt handle features four-paneled checkering. And then there’s the wood. John Bolliger’s trademark stocking always draws the eye, and this one does so as well as any of the rifles coming out of his Mountain Riflery shop today. Bolliger started with a beautiful piece of English walnut, gave it a very pleasing express-rifle silhouette and then started adding his details. The checkering is a highly ornate fleur-de-lis pattern with ribbons. The forward line of the shadowline cheekpiece doesn’t curve up. Instead, it flows toward the pistol grip where it becomes one of the decorative ribbons. The stock is inletted with a smooth box around the bolt release. The wood to metal fit and wood to wood fit at the fore-end tip are so smooth that the fit is practically organic.
