.257 Weatherby Magnum



This beautiful ONE OF A KIND rifle chambered for .257 Weatherby Magnum Custom rifle was owned by Herb Klein, who was a Dallas oil tycoon and world-renowned big game hunter & one of the founders of Weatherby. He was one of the best big game hunters in the world. In the mid 60's the legendary recording artist, jazz pianist/singer, Buddy Greco obtained this rifle from Mr. Klein who was a fan. Buddy said he would never forget that it was delivered to him wrapped in newspapers. The gun is in perfect condition. It has extensive gold inlay including trigger and bolt, and has Mr. Klein's name engraved on the bottom of the stock. Also mother of pearl inlays. This is a very unique one of a kind rifle and highly collectible.

That is really cool. I am aware of Mr. Klein and his accomplishments as he mentioned many times in Jack's stories and in the record books!
Do you know what type of wood that is? I have a myrtlewood stock and think that it could be the same.
