    Perhaps his website will clarify, but I would guess he means 100 yds or meters.

    Awesome collectors piece a true work of art and great craftsmanship!!!! WOW!!!!!!

    Once again truly awesome but in my profession it would be like buying a R1,2 million rand cruiser chopping the roof stripping the seats and start running up the Mountains with it...

    Truly beautifull just not practical.

    My best always.

    Thanks for the kind words James.
    Our finished rifles will not leave our facility unless they meet or exceed our expectations. For sub .30 caliber the limit for 3 shot groups is 0.5" at 100m, but it's usually around 0.25". For 30.+ caliber the limit is 1" but again it's usually less. This particular rifle will do 0.5" groups at 100m. Bear in mind that this is with factory ammunition, so expect them to be even more precise with home loaded ammunition.
    Regarding our selection of calibers; we have everything from .222 all the way to .465 H&H Magnum so I'm sorry if you've been misinformed and I realize our website is partly to blame. That's something we're currently working on.
    The vision was to build beautiful rifles that aesthetically belong on the wall, though fare even better in the wild. The only wall hung Jensen's that I'm aware of, is those at our dealerships. They all deserve to be used and enjoyed by their owners, so I hope it isn't the case.
    I hope that answers your questions.

    I agree. Gorgeous rifle! But I could just not pay that kind of money for a rifle and take it out and beat it up. But then again, the persons buying this kind of firearm does not care about $30,000.

    Another question for you if ordering a rifle like this what is the normal turn around time one could expect?

    sorry rick i dont agree with you, my 9.3 double is worth more than that and i have used it in pouring rain in hungary to dust and heat in zambia, and i do care about the amount it cost. i dont see the point of having something and not using it. its the same as saying just because you have a, for example lamborghini aventador and it cost so much that you are going to leave it in the garage and not use it . :)

    Well said! I absolutely agree. There's nothing impractical about any expensive rifle or shotgun. If you buy it you should enjoy it.

    I absolutely love your work. I currently have a 6.5 x 54 Mannlicher Schoenauer and a Heym in .308 with full length stocks. The little Schoenauer shoots minute of deer and the Heym shoots a five shot clover leaf. Was the engraving on the floor plate your concept? I really like it - new and different. And brother Bateman is exactly right. Both my Evans Paradox and Sodia .375 have been to Africa with me (and the paradox several other places). Both are valued in that range and both cost quite a bit less than our Land Rover - and all are meant to be used hard in tough places.
