Gibbs Farquharson #971
      10/03/13 07:07 AM

This is the Gibbs Farquharson I recently bought which was mentioned and shown on the "Interesting little Gibbs" thread.

It is quite interesting as well.
This particular rifle is the fourth from the end of production of 974 total.
It was finished and delivered in 1910 and then subsequently rebarreled by Gibbs to 6.5.
It has the dial for a special sight (but not the staff itself) which is let into the comb of the stock. Only two others are known to have this type of sight.
It has a well worn case, but the trade label is what I think is a very rare one with the Bristol address and their Vancouver address. It also has cities listed in which Gibbs had won exhibitions. This label is different than the other case labels from late Gibbs Farquharson rifles and I have to say, is unlike any other Gibbs label I have seen which admittedly is not very many.
I will get more photos up as soon as the weather cooperates.

He who lives in the past is doomed to enjoy it.
