I am selling my custom built Winchester Pre-64 type Model 70 Dangerous Game Rifle by David Christman chambered in .416 Rem. It carries a Swarovski Dangerous Game scope 1.25-4x24mm 1st focal plane. This rifle has never seen the bush, and is in 97%-99% condition. Less than 50 rnds through the gun. It will shoot under 1 MOA all day. It is a fantastic gun. As much as it is killing me to sell it, I am trying to fund my double rifle addiction. I have other big bore bolt guns so my loss is your gain. For David to build this today, you are looking at $7500-$8000.00 to replace this, with no scope!!

The rifle was built by famous Bench Rest builder David Christman. David is a longtime member if the prestigious American Custom Gun Guild (ACGG). His work is outstanding and the accuracy is remarkable of his builds. David's work is so good, that Shilen Barrels uses him for their barrel chambering.

  • Straight grain with mild figure walnut stock, with 22LPI checkering, ebony tip, shadow line cheek rest

I have only shot factory loads through it. Hornady 400gr DG ammo shot excellent, as well as Barnes 400gr. TSX's. I never took pics of targets. Less than 50 rnds through the gun. Anyone is welcome to contact David in regards to this quality build and the accuracy of his guns.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
