U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The world’s finest custom rifle and pistol set ever created will be auctioned off on the final evening of Safari Club International’s Convention Jan. 19-22, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
The Safari Club International 50th Anniversary Commemorative Rifle/Pistol Set features an ornate bolt-action rifle by John Bolliger Jr. of Mountain Riflery and a 1911 Colt pistol by Mike Dubber. Dubber engraved both firearms.
This one-of-a-kind firearm ensemble could set a new record price for modern firearms. For example, in 2019, a World Heritage Series rifle created by Bolliger was sold at auction during the SCI Convention for $260,000.
For decades, SCI has been the industry world leader in elevating the value of rifles as functional art. This started in 1982 when the first rifle of a five-year, five-rifle series sold for $41,000.
Each successive rifle in that series sold for more than the one before, with the fifth rifle selling at auction in 1986 for $201,000. Since then, SCI’s Convention has been THE place where the world’s finest firearms are introduced and sold.
The SCI annual Convention, known as the Ultimate Sportsmen’s Market, features the best hunts, firearms, equipment and wildlife art in the world – all in one place at one time. Registration is open now at www.safariclub.org/convention.
