I am selling my 404 Jeffery built on Winchester pre 64 Model 70 action. It is stocked in a D'arcy Echols Lengend synthetic stock that has been "Hydro dipped". The rifle was built for me by Tip Burns, an outstanding gunsmith in Texas. It has a 23" barrel, a barrel band front sight and a single leaf rear sight. It has a barrel band sling swivel base and 3 position safety. All metal is matte finish. The LOP is 13 3/4" and weighs approximately 8.5 pounds.

Asking $3,750 shipped to lower 48. Only to California if allowed.

Have you still got the rifle? I've always wanted a .404. There's a slot in my safe between the .375 and the .458 Lott just waiting for the right .404 to come along! Does it feed well?

WAB,

I still have the rifle. It does feed well. The gunsmith that did the work did a really great job.

Someone needs to buy this. You can't have one built for that price - I can attest to that. I just had one built from a M70 Classic originally chambered in 300 RUM and I spent considerably more. Plus, this is on a pre 64 action.

Custom,

Thanks and you are so right. I think I probably have $4,500 in this gun including scope.

@LRich, the right person will come along, one with the want (maybe even need), the resources, and the appreciation. No doubt about it.

I know the purchaser fairly well and I think that he is not inclined to sell it. I contacted CZ awhile back and they only assembled the 404 on a special order basis. I don't know why more aren't made. It seems it's the obvious choice regarding case dimensions for someone wanting a cartridge with performance between the 375s and the big 45s. But then, it seems most products on the market that I like get discontinued, so what's that tell you about my likes/dislikes? Good luck on your search for a 404 :<)
