General | February 29, 2024

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is no stranger to auctions as it hosts hundreds of them nationwide each year to raise funding for its mission. However, RMEF finds itself on the other end of a national auction as a beneficiary.

From February 27 through March 10, 2024, Gunbroker.com is hosting the online auction of a limited-edition engraved Model 1854 rifle and matching numbered 29 revolver set, serial number 001 of 100.

With just 100 units being produced, the pair of .44 Magnums is extremely rare and boasts striking engravings with 22-karat gold inlay done by renowned, Baron Engraving. The limited-edition set features a PVD gloss black finish, complemented by high-grade walnut furniture, that highlights true craftsmanship, and yields a classic aesthetic. Included with the beautifully designed display case, is a letter of authenticity from Smith & Wesson President & CEO, Mark Smith, offering documentation on the set’s origin and limited status.

Proceeds will be donated to RMEF and Safari Club International in support of their initiatives and wildlife conservation advocacy.
