    Sedgley 1903 Springfield Sporter

    Here's another one snagged at auction. A really beautiful pre-war sporter.
    It is low number and it has been drilled for a scope. Other than that, quite a find - I don't see many of these out in the wild. Just a bit better condition than the Kragicon carbine I posted!

    Trigger pull is a bit light at only 2 pounds!

    Enjoy!

    Youíre too kind!

    I was surprised by this one. I bought it through a large gun auction where stuff was going very high. Iím not going to quit my day job or anything but Iím going to do quite alright on it. I guess itís just obscure enough to fly under the radar. A real under appreciated gem!

    Agreed, Jim.
    The lines are very similar to that Kragicon I have:

    As I understand it, when Sedgley made up a shop gun they would remove the serial numbers so customers would not know they were buying a low number '03. But when a customer brought in his own rifle for work the serial number was untouched. You have a very nice rifle, I would not hesitate to hunt with that rifle.

    I don't suppose there are any accessible Sedgley company records floating around, is there? That would be interesting.
    Neat tidbit about this being a customer supplied rifle. I imagine one had to be pretty well heeled to go in for this kind of work at the time!
