REX Artisan "Africaine" Rifle

Made to our specification and exclusively for us by Chapuis Armes of France, the REX Artisan "Africaine" Double Rifle is svelte, stunning, and practical. The Round-bodied "Blitz" action is hand-engraved with custom African game scenes appropriate to the caliber, set against deeply incised foliate scroll and chain link borders. The coin finish shows off the engraving to best advantage. This example is furnished with two sets of barrels: a set of 24" double rifle barrels in the versatile (and recently "rediscovered")  9.3x74R caliber; and a set of 28" shotgun barrels in 20ga with 3" chambers. Other rifle calibers are available (8x57JRS, 7x65R, 30R Blaser and 30-06) and the double rifle can be ordered without the shotgun barrels or the scope mounts. The fit and finish on this rifle are superb in all details.  The pictures barely do this wonderful firearm justice. We hope you enjoy them and please don't hesitate to contact us for further information by email or by telephone (503) 263 3787 business hours Pacific.
