Has anyone heard of George Benzinger? (sp?) A friend of mine picked up a gun where this person signed it with an electro pencil or something and he's suppose to be some gunmith in NY somewhere ... or use to be if he's passed on. Can't find much on him .... actually nothing on him. The gun is a 1980 Marlin 45.70 with custom scroll work on top of the receiver, a custom Walnut stock with cheek rest which is all hand checkered, a Leupold 1.5-5 scope on it with a weird mount where you pull two tab things back and the scope slides off the rail it's on. The bolt has been jeweled, an obvious trigger job that's awesome I must say and a custom finish applied to the metal to where it looks almost dark grey instead of black. I'm sure this gun is worth something and he told me stories of how much the gun was purchased for by the sprevious owner BUT ... I have a hard time believing the price. Does anyone hear know of this George Benzinger fellow and what his custom guns are besides a work of art?? (This gun has never been fired.) Highly sought after in the collector world?
