WTS Colt Sauer Grand African in 458W.M.

This bolt action rifle was manufactured just twelve years (1973-1985), by JP Sauer of Germany for Colt. According to the serial numbers for all calibers, only 27,189 total rifles were produced from 1973 through 1984. This one falls in the 1977 range of serial numbers.

Rifle has a tang safety with a loaded chamber indicator.

Receiver is drilled and tapped.

Scope mounts are included, along with rings.(one screw shows use)

The rifle is stocked with beautiful African Bubinga wood (an upgrade) with monte carlo cheekpiece and fitted with rosewood forend tip.

The pistol grip cap has the Colt rampant horse medallion inlay and the checkering is beautifully hand cut.

Stock has attached sling swivel stud with front being on barrel.  The stock is finished in a high gloss poly finish that can be easily made satin with a couple of strokes of 0000 steel wool.

The bolt body is highly polished and as many know it is so slick that it slides shut when rifle is tilted forward fast.

The metal surfaces are highly polished and masterfully blued to show a deep and mirrored  finish. The writing has been color filled by previous owner and can be removed easily.

I do have and will include a spare new magazine.

I would rate condition at 98/99% with only a very few safe dings and the recoil pad is a bit weak from sitting in safe. I take out every other Spring,  to wipe and re-oil before putting back in the safe.

According to specs I've downloaded, (I could verify for interested buyers) Barrel length 24" with a 1 - 14" twist, sights rear, fully adjustable for windage and elevation, Front sight ramped and hooded with sight radius of aprox. 15". Approx weight is 9 3/4 lbs and overall lenght is about 44".  Length of pull should be 13 3/4". Three round detachable magazine and adjustable trigger with a roller bearing sear.

$2900 $2800 $2700 FTF, and  $3000 $2900  $2800 shipped CONUS  is a fair price. AK & HI at cost.

Shipping will be in a hard case, with insurance to your FFL from a private seller with a copy of my DL. 

Don't be hesitant to make an offer as the most I "might" say is, thanks but no. No trade interests at this time. 

For  FTF, willing to drive within 30 miles of Port St. Lucie, on Rt. 95 exits.

Must be at least 21, Florida resident and CWL preferred unless I know you.

Extra Pics by email, if requested.
