Sauer 80 Grand African .458 with a Leupold 1 x4 Vari X ll .

24" barrel, set trigger, factory mounts, hooded front sight. I don't know if these rifles came with rings so I assume they are Leupold. Factory pad and sling mounts.

The bore is a mirror as I would expect with a caliber that you don't shoot much for practice..
Blue is 99% with a small scratch on the barrel about 5 inches back from the front hooded sight (safe oops?) and some scratches on the bottom metal in front of the magazine. I have no idea how they got there but they are so fine I would guess it was from carrying it while wearing a ring. Again just a guess but it would appear that this rifle went on a hunt but was well taken care of and put back in the safe.

The nicely figured wood is near perfect with a small ding in the edge of the Rosewood grip cap and two very small spots on the right side of the wrist checkering. It looks as though the checkering was rubbed against something and the sharp points were dulled. The remainder of the panels on both the wrist and forearm are as sharp as the day they were checkered. I have close up pictures to show what I am talking about.

The scope is a high gloss Leupold 1 X4 Vari X ll Duplex that has a few marks on the tube but internally is perfect. Again just a guess but it would appear that this rifle went on a hunt but was well taken care of then put back in the safe.

I will send the Imgur link to any interested parties for all the pictures and can provide my information along with my phone number.

$2450.00
Price is plus actual USPS Priority shipping/Ins. to your FFL who must be willing to accept from a non licensee. You of course have the 3 day non firing inspection period.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
