Dorleac and Dorleac Heeren rifle in 6.5x57R
      #184565 - 25/06/11 09:47 AM

I have pictures of a new rifle built by my friend Joel Dorleac of the Dorleac and Dorleac firm in France. These pictures detail the build process.

In Joel's words:

A new D&D single shot rifle...

Single shot Heeren stalking rifle, caliber 6,5x57R.
The completely redone Nagel & Menz original action is fitted with a light 24" octagonal barrel machined from Böhler "Super Blitz" steel and proofed at Ferlach.
The action and all steel fittings are engraved and light chiseled in traditional manner and finished in bone case hardening in color.
The stock is made from a piece of French walnut in modernized classic style, with a short Alex Henry forend and an engraved steel buttplate.
The rifle is fitted with a Swarovski Z3 3-10x42 R.4 scope on specially hand made claw mounts.
The rifle alone weights 5lb 15oz and 6lb 15oz scoped.

Hope you will like the the pictures.

En toute amitié.

French guns are one of the world's best kept secrets, I think. Thanks for sharing Mehul!

Beautifully appointed. The 'case' is nicely done.

Superb!
This rifle shows the quality workmanship we see on all the Dorleac rifles.
I think we are indeed fortunate to be able to drool over these masterpieces.
Thanks Joel and Mehul for showing these photos.
