DAVID LLOYD .264 MAGNUM BOLT ACTION RIFLE.

ICONIC HAND MADE English Sporting Rifle .264 Magnum from David Lloyd of Pipewell. Widely Regarded as within the ALL TIME TOP TEN of Rifles made WORLD WIDE. These were ALWAYS Built to the Dream and NOT a budget. Certainly THE favourite calibre of the man himself. Specifically designed for Longer Range One Shot Red Deer Kills on the Open Hills of Scotland. (Or anywhere similar anywhere else)!

PLENTY of information available on line but basically the man built rifles to the principle that the rifle should be attached to the scope with as Low Profile as Possible. If you have never actually had the privilege of holding one the immediate attention grabbers are the scope mounts.

Design and Engineering Second to None. In fact WAY ahead of anything before or since. NO WAY are they EVER likely to even think about working loose let alone actually do so. Even with the heaviest recoil imaginable.

Also NO CNC available when these were being produced so all individually machined BY HAND BY TRUE CRAFTSMEN. No exaggeration to claim literally just about bomb proof.

YES, the scope/s are turretless.

This is to keep the overall profile as clean, neat and aesthetically pleasing as is possible. Before you ask (or read RUBBISH on line) there ARE adjustable to match whatever ammunition you use. You just need to know how AND have the right sized Allen Head Key. Admittedly not that easy to find but not impossible.

Scopes themselves are always a simple Fixed 4 power and usually a Swarovski Habitch Nova or similar. This with a 3 way WIDE Duplex Reticle.

As such a pretty SCARY prospect for what seems to be the bulk of modern day shooters. I REFUSE to classify them as Riflemen, Sportsmen OR STALKERS. Given today’s predominance and SILLY need for excessive magnification, in built laser ranging, bullet drop compensation and thermal. The only inoffensive term I can come up with is, as above, and say shooter.

Anyway, RANT OVER and back to this WONDERFUL CLASSIC and BEAUTIFUL RIFLE.

A BEST Quality HIGHLY Decorative Walnut Stock with Raised Cheek Rest and Red 1” (25mm) Recoil Pad. The INSTANTLY Recognisable Swept Back ‘Squared’ profile Bolt Handle that always tucks in so neatly and close. Buffalo Horn Tip to the Forend and Pistol Grip. Jewelled Bolt Shaft which is ALWAYS a nice finish to me and a shame not more common.

This example has an unusual Matt Textured Finish to the Hinged Magazine Floor Plate and Trigger Guard. Its certainly the first one I have seen and its usually ME who manages to dig and PRY these out.

Its RARE that people actually part with one once they manage to finally get one!

Often / SADLY its not an option as they are no longer actually here to keep possession.

Its like the old Motor Bike T shirts with the declaration: YES, of course you can have my BIKE…When you finally manage to pry my Cold Dead Fingers from the Handle Bars!

David Lloyd owners seem to have a similar mentality and WHY NOT? Its  GOOD thing.

This is certainly one of the cleanest examples I have had privilege to be a part of. Its in BEAUTIFUL Condition and all but BRAND NEW.

Actual Spec. is as follows:

26” (610mm) Lustrous Deeply Blued Barrel. NOT screw cut. As with all Lloyd rifles the Serial No. is detailed to the bottom of the barrel just forward of the Horn Tipped Forend. Also is Gothic Script Engraving the top of the barrel Nicely Detailed with DAVID LLOYD .264 MAG.

Stock / Trigger Pull measures to 13 ½” (344mm) and brings in an Overall Length of 44 ½” (1130mm). As pictured and Including Mounts as well as the Scope the Entire Package weighs in at a VERY respectable 9 Lbs 4 oz (4.188 Kg) only.
