    Stunning looking double Zephyr ! Boy, they really knew how to build them "back in the day", didn't they ? Strolling along the trail would surely feel good with that baby cradled on the crook of one's arm ! Cost being long forgotten.

    Hate to say it I bought that double in the early 90's for under $10K, when doubles were just getting popular and 450's were still on the back shelf.
    It's coming to your neck of the woods in Aug for a Buff Cull Hunt :D

    yup zephyr i remember back then looking at .450s and 450/400s at sci and they were $8,000 to $9000 ,some less as nobody wanted them, only .470s were just taking off then and they were cheap then as well.......ahhhh hindsight ! at least you bought one then unlike me who decided to wait till the prices had risen......................

    Zephyr, that rifle is a steal at twice the price you paid !

    I too remember those days...... but was too thick to see the writing on the wall.

    I know of guys that halled back loads of doubles from India, before the ban, and made big money.

    Very best of luck on your hunt, I do hope you enjoy your stay in our country.
