#8562, Al Biesen Gunmaker Spokane, Wn: A 7x57 Mauser on a Mauser Action, Made in 1962, 22" Douglass barrel without any open sights, 2 piece Weaver scope bases and rings, Weaver fixed power scope with a post reticle, Hinged floorplate with a center bow release, A 2-position wing safety on the bolt sleeve, Two panel teardrop bolt knob checkering, Canjar trigger, Jeweled bolt and follower, Action rails inside and out are polished, Built-up & checkered bolt stop release, A pure Biesen Custom Classic style stock, Biesen classic full wrap around Fleur-De-Lis checkering with a fairly deep recess, Shadowline cheekpiece, Very slight monte carlo comb, Ebony forend tip, Sling eyes on the stock, Biesen 1 screw checkered steel grip cap, Lightning cuts inside the forend, Biesen signed inside the inletting and on the top of the barrel, Very small cut for a right side peep sight to be mounted on the receiver bridge, 14" LOP over a Biesen checkered steel trapdoor buttplate, 8 lbs. with the scope and mounts on it, The bore appears as new, A nice piece of wood, The original Biesen blue remains at 90%, The original stock finish at 85% with scattered hunting & handling marks, The checkering honestly remains at 100%. It has a nickel silver escutcheon with the initials L G G. I have a very strong feeling that the bolt handle was done by the Master Mr. Tom Burgess. Mr. Al Biesen is the Norman Rockwell of custom bolt rifles in America and his merits are covered extensively in the pages of Jack O'Connor and the Gun Digest. Plus, it is chambered to the great cartridge designed by Paul Mauser in 1892, a milestone in modern cartridge design, used the world over and is a ballistic delight.
