Griffin & Howe Griffin & Howe



The Griffin & Howe Custom Rifle, the benchmark for custom rifles since 1923

The style has changed very little since Seymour Griffin and James V. Howe joined forces to meet the needs of discriminating sportsmen and sportswomen. You can share the prestige of owning a Griffin & Howe Custom Rifle, made to your specifications in the caliber of your choice, from .22 Hornet up to the .416 Rigby, or even the crushing .505 Gibbs.

We build all our custom rifles in our state-of-the-art Gunsmithing facility. They still bear the legendary, iconic nomenclature that since 1923 has been the true marque of, Griffin & Howe, NY, NY. Preferred actions are the Springfield ’03, pre ’64 Winchester Model 70 and Square Bridge or Double Square Bridge Mauser 98.

The Classic Griffin & Howe French Walnut Stock with hand rubbed London Oil finish will give you years of pleasure and pride of ownership.

A Griffin & Howe quick detachable top mount or side mount and quarter rib with folding leaf sights complete the typical custom made rifle by Griffin & Howe. Special engraving and gold inlays are also available.

If you wish to move into the exclusive realm of a Griffin & Howe Custom Rifle, please allow approximately 12-18 months for us to handcraft the firearms of your dreams. The price for one of our aristocratic, handmade rifles starts at $18,000.00. Special features and larger calibers are available, for the sportsman or sportswoman who will settle for nothing but the ultimate.

Griffin & Howe Ramp Front Sight
The Griffin & Howe ramp front sight is machined from solid stock and hand fitted to your barrel. When furnished with a gold or ivory bead and removable hood, this sight is esthetically pleasing and highly functional.
The Griffin & Howe Front Sight, available on an installed basis only: $995.00

Griffin & Howe Barrel Band
Our Barrel bands are individually handmade and fitted for those who prefer their sling attached to the barrel rather than the stock. In this way, the muzzle weight height over the head is lowered while the rifle is slung over the shoulder, making passage through heavier timber easier. Positioning the swivel on the barrel helps prevent pinching and bruising of the hand while firing heavy calibers.
