King of Bling: The Million-Euro Rifle

I'm going to keep the text very short on this Gun of the Week, as the images will speak much better than my words. But here's what you have to remember about this gun:

  • The high relief ornamentation that appears to have been welded on the metal surfaces has actually been relief engraved from an oversized barrel and frame. Anybody catch the slight vertical and horizontal lines on the closeup of the frame where the action opens?
  • Upon close inspection, the nuggets on the end of the gold veins actually have hundreds of diamonds inlaid into them.
  • The forearm tip and pistol grip cap have been relief carved in great detail out of solid chunks of ivory.
  • The Swarovski scope was gold plated at the factory, and the scope rings are works of art unto themselves.

I know what you are thinking — how long did it take to complete this gun, and how much does it cost? The work was completed by Scheiring GmbH in Ferlach, Austria, long known for its ultra-high quality long arms. It took the company's master craftsmen four to five years to finally get it completed.




What's the asking price? When I was in Scheiring's booth at the most recent IWA Show in Nürnberg, Germany, the price of a million-plus euros was bantered around. The owner would certainly be guaranteed a one-of-a-kind item, as Scheiring has no plans to build another one!

Close-Up

A good look at the receiver and trigger guard gives an impression of the highly detailed ornamentation.

Barrel

Even the barrel is highly decorated, with the same high-relief engraving and an ivory front sight.

Ivory Engraving

A closer look at the pistol grip cap shows the ornate ivory carving, imitating the look on the G&A online staff's faces when they first got a look at this beauty.

Barrel and Forearm Tip

Another look at the beautiful ivory carving--this time on the forearm tip. A closer look at the barrel shows the diamond-encrusted gold nuggets.

Forearm Decorations

A closer look at the forearm showcases the gorgeous ivory decoration, and offers another look at the diamond-encrusted gold nuggets.

Trigger Guard

Even the trigger guard is decorated in the same fashion, with gold veins coursing through the high-relief engraving.

Diamonds and Gold

We just can't get enough of it, so here's another look at those diamond-encrusted gold nuggets. Eat your heart out, Liberace.
