    Default Pump action rifles in Africa

    I have noticed that I hear no stories of people taking pump action rifles to Africa. Why is this? It seems to me that a Remington model 760 or 7600 in .30-06 would be a fine gun for an African safari. Is there a reason why I never hear of people taking pumps on safari?


    I hope I put this in the correct forum.

    The reason why no pump actions? maybe very few hunters that come to Africa own one/ or they own other guns?
    I have been guiding for 22 years now and can only recall one hunter that ever brought one over and that was maybe 14 years ago.
    Nothing wrong with them I guess, and it is legal to bring one.

    Pump action rifles are big thing here in the eastern United States. Is is surprising that people don't bring pumps over to Africa.

    I believe from what I read that SEMPRIO from Krieghoff is going to change that forever, had anyone tried yet?
    the reverse pump action rifle?
