The winning bidder will have their choice of one of the following items. Kreighoff International, along with Alamo Sporting Arms, presents the Classic "Big Five" Double Rifle in .470 Nitro Express for hunters who relish in legends past while seeking the reliability and safety modern engineering offers. Introduced in 1900, the .470 NE cartridge delivers superior penetration and stopping powers when hunting any Big Five game. Krieghoff designed the Classic Double Rifle with the perfect balance and sturdiness to endure the longest of treks through the bush. Krieghoff's patented Combi-cocking device allows the rifle to be carried fully loaded, while the hammers remain uncocked, thereby eliminating the chance of accidental discharge. One smooth motion readies the hunt for the shot, or renders the rifle safe again should the moment pass. Stocked with select wood finishined with fine checkering, the Classic specially shaped stock allows for comfort when shooting large calibers. Double triggers designed to optimize the quick second shot are crisp and responsive. Arabesque engraving accents the steel receiver, adding an elegant finishing touch to the rifle. Designed to deliver top performance on every clay target field of competition, the Krieghoff K-80 sporting model features a sporting stock with an adjustable comb, matching schnabel forearm made from Turkish Walnut; your choice of 30" or 32" tapered flat rib barrel fitted with titanium choke tubes. Featuring the very popular upgraded Vintage scroll engraving and durable nickel finish, the K-80 withstands the rigors of competition with the confidence and reliability you expect from Krieghoff. If wing shooting is more your sport, the winner will be given the option of choosing the K-20 model in 30" or 32" barrel length. Built on a true 20 gauge fram, the K-20 features a sporting non-adjustable stock with matching schnabel forearm in Turkish Walnut and a set of tapered flat barrels fitted with factory steel choke tubes. The engraving pattern is the same scroll found on the Vintage scroll K-80. HSC would like to thank Alamo Sporting Arms and Krieghoff International for this donation.
