DWM Argentine Model 1909 with a 22” barrel having a quarter rib with fixed blade rear sight and a barrel band ramp front sight with hood. The quarter rib extends over the receiver and is dovetailed for the front scope ring while the rear has been built up to a square bridge with integral dovetail. Mounts are Kimber/Brownell detachable rings with a Leupold Vari-X III 1.5-5X scope. The bolt knob is checkered and there is a Dakota side-swing safety. The bolt stop release is built up and checkered. The Timney trigger resides in what appears to be 1909 bottom metal with a straddle floorplate. The floorplate, grip cap, receiver, quarter rib, scope rings, etc. are engraved by Rex Pederson.


The stock is English walnut with a shadowline cheekpiece, two-screw steel grip cap, ebony fore end tip, vacant silver oval, inletted sling swivel studs, and a black Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad. The wood and metal are both very good to excellent condition with just very minor wear from handling. I’ve never shot this rifle, much less hunted with it. PM with your email address if you’d like any additional photos.

Thanks for the compliments! It's the most embellished rifle I own and looks quite nice in person.

Hermoso rifle..!!!, tengo una acción ´98 Arg. impecable disponible.., me encantaría hacer un 9.3 x 62 con ese diseño..., hay buenos armeros aquí en Argentina para hacerlo, no hay que modificar absolutamente nada, pero no hay caños de buena calidad disponibles...

Who built it ?
I'm not entirely sure, as I didn't commission it, but it’s supposed to be stocked and finished by Dennis Barret and the quarter rib by Kip Wood. This is according to the previous owner. The engraving is signed “REX” which is Rex Pedersen. Whoever made it, they certainly knew what they were doing.

I took the stock off last night to look for any markings in the barrel channel but there weren't any. The inletting was very nicely done, as you would expect.

Thanks Kurt, I appreciate the reduction but with little information on the gun of maker, etc.., still quite steep for me. If you change your mind, my offer still stands. Best of luck!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
