Mickey Britt

I knew Mickey and used to shoot with him and another builder Dennis Mulford in the 1970's. I lost track of him sometime in the 1980's and I believe he moved, possibly out of California. He's made some very fine guns with exceptional carving. RW

This is in my estimate a fantastic little rifle (left handed and a 33 inch Getz swamped .50 caliber barrel) with carving on it like none I have seen anywhere. He also executed some fine and very tasteful engraving that you normally do not see today. I am thankful and proud to have had the opportunity to be the steward of this rifle for a while. Thanks again for publishing the information and hope this encourages more rifles like mine to surface so their beauty can be shared with all. GH
