In the market for a collectible firearm? A highly sought-after .300 Winchester Caliber action rifle is crossing the block during a live auction on Friday, February 25 with Gary Ryther Auctioneers, Inc. The firearm is a finely-crafted Ernest Dumoulin Bavaria Deluxe Bolt. A common version of this Belgian firearm is often valued between $1,000 – $2,000, but this detailed example has several engraved gold inlays, making it worth around $20k.
Ernest Dumoulin and his family are known for making very fine and elegant rifles, especially for big game hunting. With an octagonal barrel and three leaf sight, the item features intricate gold carvings of bear, whitetail, elk, and ram with a beautiful wood finish – likely walnut or similar quality. The item up for auction also comes with a leather hard case and the Swarovski-Optic 3-12x56 scope engraved with gold rings. The Swarovski-Optic scope is worth at least $1,000 on its own.
