On another thread, we had a chance to look at one of Bailey's amazing double rifles built on his "rising block" design. Around two years ago, I had the opportunity to purchase one of his single shots from him that are based upon the same brilliant design. I had planned to post some photos of it once I had taken a deer with it, but that is taking longer than I planned. It is an elegant rifle. It combines many of the best attributes of both English and Continental stalking rifles. This particular one is in 7x65R. It is light, lean and extraordinarily accurate with everything that I have fed it. The trigger bull is perfect (as good as a Blaser R8). The action is robust and deceptively simple. I am simply astounded no one came up with the idea during the Golden Age of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The engraving is approximately 70% fine English Scroll (Acanthus) with a bit of gold highlights. Both in design and decoration, it is the minimalist perfection. Bailey is also a great individual as well as a gifted craftsman. http://www.bradshawgunandrifle.com/ His rifles, like all quality custom pieces, are not cheap when compared to say Ruger No. 1. But they are a bargain when compared to something like a Hartman & Wiess of similar handcrafted perfection.
