    Default My Ceska 550 Safari Magnun in 458 Lott.

    Hello friends, I open this post to teach the rifle purchased. The weapon is still in the armoury, so I reserved until I has finished pay the rifle. The merchant has commanded photos that I asked him to my email and I wanted to share pictures with you all the discomfort I I could cause. I hope you like.

    A greeting

    Oscar.

    As I have ammunition (very expensive) I will test the rifle.

    Thank you,

    I am eager to try it, but I will be waiting for the recoil of the weapon. People said that the forum said that the recoil is quite strong.

    Regards,

    Oscar.

    Nice oscar, good looking timber on it too. I have a Lott in the Ruger RSM which is also a nice rifle.

    look forward to hearing how it shoots.

    Hello, I as try the rifle say as pulls. I throw standing, because I dare not try it sitting for fallback. I also have to prove a Ceska Magnum 550 in 375 H & H Magnum caliber I I bought two years ago. I hope have the 458 Lott for the year ahead (when the rest of the price I paid) and already I news.

    Thank you,

    Oscar.

    A word of advice do NOT be scared of the recoil! it is not as bad as people want to make it!

    The reason I say this is that have seen so many people getting "recoil shy" that they can just as well sell the gun again!
    When you get it, try shooting standing up on sticks or off hand till you are comfortable with it.
    Not everybody are the same, I benched mine right after I got it about 20 shots to test hand loads and fine tune the open sights to my eyes and I had no problem with it as I am use to shooting Big calibers! I only use open sights because of my profession.

    As for you guys in Spain, I feel sorry for you as I know from my hunting clients that you guys pay through your necks for ammo over there!! so good luck!!

    Ps: Did you perhaps buy the gun from Jose Louis?

    Thumbs up

    Hi, I have not misunderstood your post, but the question of whether I bought the rifle to Jose Luis, my answer is no. I bought my rifle in the armory Palms, which is in Asturias. The rifle is new and was originally built in 458 Lott caliber. The rifle is not converted to the 458 WM to 458 Lott.

    Greetings,

    Oscar.

    Thank you very much, tomorrow I'll do my own photos and share them with you, and as I'll have ammunition to test the rifle (informally) and I show the results.

    Regards,

    Oscar.
