    Congrats to you Heym, I hope it brings you good fortune and a lot of F***ing trophies to put on the wall. Let us know how it shoots. Beautiful rifle by the way.

    Congrats Heym88.
    The Heym is an exceptionally well made double,
    the 450/400 versatile and effective.

    I know you will have much fun with this gun and create many lifelong memories.

    Good luck, good hunting and straight shooting.

    good to see you have finally got your hands on your double. nice bit of wood. just remember if you are married dont take it to bed with you, if you arent then then its acceptable for the first week, but after that time get some slight self control and just prop it by the bed......

    The problem is I'm looking at a beautifull used B Searcy in .470 NE from the same place I got my Heym. I swear I'm never going to get to Africa if I keep buying guns.LOL.
