The weapon’s concept
As a loner, the leopard brings down his prey with silent precision. However the leopard has a very pronounced social side. Males don’t leave their mother until they can bring down their own prey.
Hausmann & Co set itself the task of uniting all the various facets of this majestic cat of prey in a themed extra class rifle.
The Leopard’s Journey from Hausmann & Co is an elegant double-barralled rifle in .375 Holland & Holland Magnum with finely curved 61 cm (24 inch) long octagonal barrels, automatic Holland & Holland ejectors and double barrell hook locking combined with a concealed Purdey breech (third bite).
Holland & Holland side locks with intercepting sears, a Hausmann & Co special single trigger combined with a forward set trigger for both locks and a English styled push-button forend, a swivel mount produced from the solid and countersunk into the guide rail together with a Swarovski rifle scope – shot up to one hundred metres (110 yds) – mark Hausmann & Co’s superior craftmanship.
A long top tang, which simultaneously conceals the rear cross bolt, and long trigger guard which ends into a metal grip cap.
The octagonal barrels end in highly elaborately executed, arcaded fences and are contained by an extra peripheral frame line.
