Very nice-looking rifle!

Was this from an auction, or...? I would like to see the markings on this rifle (numbers, proofs, etc) so I can put a date on it.

Very nice Lee-Speed, perfect actually. Small amount of tasteful engraving with a lovely piece of timber, hard to beat.

A beautiful example of a classic stalking rifle. I think a few of today's gun makers could learn a lot about how to build a true stalking rifle by studying the feel, balance and weight of a Lee Speed.

It sold for 1300 pounds. Add buyer's premium and tax, still reasonable compared to Ontario prices.
