Original Daniel Fraser Double Rifle
Condition: Very Good
Price: 59,000 €
Hi all, for sale is this beautiful Daniel Fraser double rifle in very good condition. The double rifle was built in 1899 in caliber 450/400 3 ¼ N.E. and was one of the last rifles made by Daniel Fraser before his death in 1901.
The double rifle comes with a leather case with the same age. The case, like the rifle, is in a top condition.
One element that shows the knowledge of Daniel Fraser is the extended bolt lever and the thus slightly lower seated safety. The longer lever allows the rifle to be opened with less effort and the slightly deeper-seated safety rests intuitively on the thumb, so that unlocking is a natural move while shouldering. Above the safety slide is a second safety lever that blocks the safety slide from unintentional unlocking. The status information of the safety is bedded into the base in gold and sterling silver.
All internal lock parts are gold plated to prevent corrosion. In the 19th century, steel finishing techniques were not so advanced. In order to protect high value system parts, they were gold plated. The receiver has very fine arabesques on the outside and the very detailed and fine scallop design is typical of Daniel Fraser.
The double rifle has been shot little and the rifling and lands of the 69 cm chopper-lump barrels are in very good condition, which was confirmed by a barrel inspection at the proof-house in Cologne and by the shooting results. The shot pattern was taken at 25m, over open sights. A test at 50m also showed excellent accuracy. Both triggers release very dry and clean and have a pleasant trigger characteristic. The double rifle has ejectors, which is quite rare for the time around 1899.
The folding front sight had to be replaced, as the old front sight was damaged and a clean shoot was not possible. The rear sight with the gold line is still original.
The ammunition was made by the Laboratory of Ballistics. The rifle comes with approx. 60 rounds, 400 grain soft nose and 60 rounds, 400 grain full metal jacket. This double rifle can be safely used on any big game in the world.
The stock has a very nice grain and ends in a wooden cap. From the front trigger to the center of the wooden cap the measurement is 37 cm, To the top of the stock 37.5 cm. The checkering is in top condition and holding the double rifle while firing is no problem even with sweaty hands.
This is a very rare opportunity to acquire an original and shootable double rifle by Daniel Fraser.
