At $820,000 This Is the World's Most Expensive Rifle

The level of detail in the engraving on this VO Vagen rifle by Viggo Olsson and Ulf Olsso is simply amazing. The picture above doesn't really do it justice, so be sure to go to the link to see larger images. Shaping and coloring the claws on the bolt lug was an especially nice touch. Nonetheless, seeing these pictures reminded me of a line by Jeff Cooper:

[...] I once saw a weapon featured on a magazine cover that was extolled by its maker as the finest rifle in the world. In was far from that, though it was indeed pretty. Among its failures was the fact that it was not fitted with sights.

The thundercougarfalconrifle? I heard the luxury version has so much more eagle.

Ha ha! Nicely done!

I think stuff like this is more about the prettiness. Too bad because good iron sights are beautiful in their own way too.

@ Ryan S

Of course it's not worth anything to you. The 'Oneness' you have "found" makes everything worthless to you. Good luck with that.
