Hello,
I’ve been reading posts here about G & H. Thank you all for all the info you can glean just by reviewing what is already posted.

Just a note that might be of interest. There is an early G&H 03 on Hibid. Receiver dates from 1923. There is no G&H serial number on the barrel. ( I talked to the auction house). Thought you might want to take a look. I have no connection to the auction.

This must be one of the earliest G&Hs, but not one of their prettiest.

I think I'll stick with my Griffin & Howe Springfield.

Anyone recognize the sidemount base on the rifle? I have both G&H single lever and double lever mounts and this base looks different. Pictures 16/32 and 17/32 show two closely spaced grooves in the top of the base, picture 14/32 shows that the front groove is tapered, the picture doesn't show the rear groove.

Is that a Noske mount with the shallow taper? Kind unusual stock for G&H, restocked?

Unmarked barrel. My G&H 03 is numbered #109, so that kind of indicates that marked barrels are very early. Also, early barrels were often Bohler steel, part octagon with rib. Was the pictured gun rebarrelled? This one is a real oddball, checkered with a dull hatchet, but I would like to own it. The bid price wouldn't cover the floorplate and trigger guard. I kind of wonder whether the floorplate came off another rifle. Are those John Wayne's initials?

I agree. I think the rifle is basically a put together gun.

When a monogram's center letter is larger than the other two that represents the last name. In this case the owners initials would be
JWA.

If all three were the same size then it would be JAW.


My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

SRS shows the rifle to have been sold as a 1903NM on 11-7-23. The name of the original purchaser can be obtained from SRS. I believe the rifle has been restocked as the original military type S stock would not have had enough wood to make a pistol grip and cheek piece. With a bid of $2,700.00 plus a 14% buyers premium, someone must known additional facts about the rifle. Perhaps was owned by a famous person.

Yup, some of us value provenance above condition and features. Maybe the buyer will come forward and let us know why he values this gun so highly. I would still like to own it. Xausa, show us the Kornbrath engraving on the floorplate of your G&H rifle.
