Got my back up gun for Africa!
Well, stopped by a local shop today which I usually don't frequent due to high prices and found a wonderful little gem on consignment for a GREAT price and in GREAT condition. Walked out with a CZ 550 African Safari Magnum in .375 H&H mag, with rings, for $650. According to the original owner, whom I contacted before purchasing, the weapon had less than 50 rounds down the tube and the rifling attested to it. Very bright bore. Stock is a dinged in a few places (suspect banging around in safe against other bolt handles), but nothing which would hamper its integrity. Can't wait to shoot it once this "wintry mix" slows up and I have a day off. Pictures to follow tomorrow when I get home from work.
