Well, the rifle arrived today.

Testing showed that I could maneuver the rifle with having only a right arm ... I placed the muzzle down on the ground with the stock against my right shoulder. I could then work the bolt, and then grab the pistol grip, and then raise the rifle to aim and shoot. My chin / cheek would rest against the slanted oval on the stock. The recoil pad was against the shoulder and the sights were in-line to aim. By pulling the gun tight against the shoulder, I think recoil would be quite manageable. Since the caliber was listed as 275 HV it means the bullet would be 140 grain resulting in lower recoil.

here are some pics

Unique..
The forward trigger looks similar to the rare Alexander Henry/Fraser 2-position Target rifle.
Enjoy

Just got the June issue of The Field, celebrating the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings.

In the antiques section this article showing the same rifle as in Howard Blackmore’s book.
