All Hepburn rifles were manufactured in limited numbers with the deluxe, Long Range target rifles such as this one being manufactured in extremely limited numbers as they were intended strictly for the Long Range military matches.
This rifle is chambered for the 44-100 Remington Hepburn Creedmoor cartridge.
As you can see the sights are a front globe target sight with a spirit level; a military style tangent rear sight along with a Long Range, Vernier peep sight, with a locking eye-cup aperture, mounted on the upper tang.
This rifle, likely a special order item, is entirely nickel finished including the cleaning rod and butt plate.
