Land Rover Rifle

Does anyone have any information about this rifle? A Friend of mine has just taken delivery of it into his shop and is going to sell it for a customer of his. All that he knows about it is this.


"The story is Vector arms in South Africa built 50 of them.... custom wood stocked .375 H&H all the bells and whistles... gun has the Land Rover logo on it...

One rifle was imported into the USA for Land Rover promotion.... long story short the Land Rover attorney ended up with it in lieu of fees....."


It is really cool and if I had the 15K to spend on the gun I would buy it and ask questions later.

It looks to be very well done. Definitely cool.


Michael

Nice 375!

But my Ruger .375 for $1200 and $700 in custom work does the job!

yes, very nice. I would hesitate to use it for fear of getting it dirty!

No idea about Vector. Kind of a Mauser-y looking action from what I can see (correct me if I'm wrong). Is that lump on the left side just before the front ring of the action something to do with the scope mount? I'd be interested.

It has some sort of quick detach scope mount so the scope can be removed for close range work with the iron sights.

Yes those would be the quick release side mounts for the scope. I can say that I have never seen a set like that before so can't tell you much about them.

Michael- LR did do some of that with H&H as well. I had attended a 4 day event in Colo put on by LR back in the mid 90s and the H&Hs are what we used there. No knowledge of the earlier stuff except to say certainly plausible.
How are things out Tx way? 90 doing well?

I forgot I started this thread. I would of loved to see the H & H's. Those would fetch more than double the asking price on this one.

Things are good out here, hot. I had to take the 90 in to figure out what was wrong. I got it fixed and realized it had been not running well for a while. Now that she is good it brought back much of the driving pleasure and the drive home was a joy. It helped that some random stranger gave me the thumbs up on the way home.
