    About $2220. Not sure though what additional costs would be incurred getting the rifle into the US.

    If you live in RSA, it's a good deal, any where else..."no", you'll get killed in other costs.

    Mike,

    This looks like something that would be neat to have in Zambia.

    How many outfitters can say 404J - M-98 as a camp rifle!


    Gert,

    If it is accurate that seems like a good price for a 404J on an M98 build.

    All the best to the seller

    Hallo Members
    Johan Greyling is a gunsmith residing in Witbank, Mpumalanga. His knowledge regarding rifles/fire arms are astounding, he did his apprenticeship in the previous South African Army for five years. I am currently learning about the practical issues regarding gunsmith work , he is my mentor. It really is a privilege to learn from him.


    He casts his own canons and is the only person I know of whom duplicate "Grietjie die Boere kanon" it is the canon the Voortrekkers used to defeat Dingaan and his Zulu impis...I can assure you, this rifle is one of its kind, I shot the first one, since I have my own .404 Jeffery I know when a .404 Jeffery rifle shoots extremely well...these rifles Johan build, really shoots extremely well.

    P1010590_zps537cd86a.jpg P1010591_zps1d8ef39a.jpg

    Johan Greyling is busy with a project currently, he is going to cast a replica from an Obendorf Mauser Action 98, he already incorporated stronger features than the original Mauser 98 action has. It will be able to accommodate rounds from a .404 Jeffery through to a .500 Jeffery and .505 Gibbs round with ease.

    I will keep members up to date regarding this project...

    We will market these actions as: "Boere Mauser, build in Africa for Africa....":D

    Good day to you Mike
    Sorry for the late reply, Witbank is about 100 km from Pretoria, you are more than welcome to visit Johan at the" safe" it is where the file shop is...you will be treated on excellent filter coffee ....I really think you will experience his rifle shop as very different from the normal rifle shop you. You will be busy admiring all the beautiful old collectors rifles Johan collected over the years...you will even be able to shoot these old rifles and the .404 Jeffery Johan is building....

    I really would like to hear from you.

    Kind Regards

    Gert Odendaal

    Hallo Mike
    I tried to send you an e-mail, but the e-mail in your signature line does not want to work. Is there maybe another e-mail I can reach you?

    Regards

    Gert

    So this is an incredibly tortuous tease for all of us Americans. Beautiful rifle in a nice caliber, but that's the point, right?
