H.M. (Harry) Pope

Hi everybody, I'm new here, just found this site. Not sure I'm in the right place. Been shooting almost my whole life, but just moved back to Calif., after almost 20 yrs in upstate NY. I sold all my guns, along with almost everything else to pay for the move. Now I'm looking to start over, with a Harry Pope offhand (or schutzen) rifle. I found one for sale after I got to NYS back in '92, mint, with case and all accessories in 32-40. The owner had passed and his wife was selling his guns. But another guy beat me to it for 1500.00. Am I in the right forum, does anybody know of any?

Thanks

I just can't imagine what it would take to find - and pay for - an original Pope rifle. Take that $1500 rifle from 1992 and add a zero, just to start with.

You might talk it up on the ASSRA board.

There are some new made period styled scheutzen rifles.
CPA has a very nice Stevens 44 1/2, a friend recently bought one in silhouette configuration that is a fine shooter.

There are several other makers of period rifles who might do a scheutzen or you could have a custom gunsmith use one of their actions.

Hello Imurray. Give Gary Quinlan a call..(215)-766-3403..he has full page ads in The Single Shot Exchange. Few years ago I purchased a 1933 prone match rifle .22 L.R. on an engraved 6 1/2 Rigby-Ballard action re-barreled by H.M. Pope from Gary..he gets them in from time to time.
