.243 Bolt action Rifle from one of what many regard as amongst the 10 best rifle makers in the world. OF ALL TIME!
Apparently as years went by customers kept requesting lighter caliber rifles for use in lowland / woodland setting etc. 8 original Mauser 98 actioned rifes were found in storage chambered in.244. As popularity had somewhat wained by then it was decided to re-barrel them in .243. These proved VERY popular so a further 6 were produced. This time on lighter and more suitable Sako actions.
ANY original Lloyd rifle is RARE these days. To find one of only 6 (Sako action) or even the 14 in total is just about impossible !
Certainly a collectors piece as well as investment. ALSO a rifle to shoot and enjoy too so the best of all worlds !
All that said, 6 weeks before securing this a second Lloyd .243 was aquired. The serial number only two digits higher but this is now sold.
This has a slightly ‘ lighter build ‘ to the rifle with a thinner / slimmer stock. (More to suit a smaller hand than for actual weight ). It comes complete with original Swarovski 4x Scope and Patented David Lloyd mounts. Trigger set to a nice 3lbs 6oz at present.
