$5,500

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!

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
