Big Five

Availability: In stock

SKU: Big Five
In 1909, a large expedition of scientists from the Smithsonian Institution was sent to Africa in search of big game. Among them the former president of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt and his son. The expedition, which would take the men more than a year to complete and which yielded thousands of specimens for the Smithsonian, was a source of inspiration for filmmakers years after the facts. In 1989, the motion picture "In The Blood" was released. The Big Five rifle was created by Lebeau-Courally for the occasion. Naturally, the classic rifle was a perfect fit for the historical drama.

Double barrelled sidelock express rifle, cal. 458 Win. Delivered with a second set of barrels in .375 HH caliber, equipped with a scope on quick-detachable mounts. Finely engraved with the “Big Five”.

Details

In 1909 trok een grootschalige expeditie van wetenschappers van het Smithsonian Instituut naar Afrika, op zoek naar groot wild. Onder hen de voormalige president van de Verenigde Staten, Theodore Roosevelt en zijn zoon. De onderneming, die meer dan een jaar zou duren en duizenden specimens opbracht voor het Smithsonian, was jaren later voer voor filmmakers. In 1989 verscheen de film “In The Blood”. Lebeau-Courally maakte speciaal voor de gelegenheid de Big Five, die perfect paste in het historische drama. Dubbele express karabijn met zijsloten, cal. 458 Win., voorzien van een tweede paar lopen cal. 375 HH., inclusief vizier dat uitzonderlijk snel ge(de-)monteerd kan worden.
