    Hi All,

    I'm new to the forum hence my first post.

    I would like to draw on the collective experience of the forum members, to see if anyone has had any experience with the FAMARS African Express Double Rifle, particularly in how they shoot.

    Thanks in Adavnce:D

    Rigby350,

    I think I replied to you on another forum-- the FAMARS guns are topshelf. THey are priced well below the english guns with the same quality level (heck they are behind alot of the modern english guns). I will tell you if you order a gun be ready to wait and wait and do some more waiting with little to no communication. As long as your OK with waiting 2-3 yrs and hearing from them 1-2 times a year with no pic's or progression reports you will be fine.

    THe 470 my friend has is one of the finiest doubles out there/ I have both 500 and 450/400 on order and delivery this Jan. they were ordered Feb 2008--paid in full-- I have not been completely pleased with the communication.

    Famars makes beautiful shotguns and rifles. I was tempted to order a double, but I purchased a shotgun at SCI from Famars in 2009. It was promised to me in April, but didn't show up until January the following year. Communication is not their strong point. Keep everything in writing in case there is a discrepancy. Hopefully they will respond. I am sure once you get it, it will be a top notch rifle.
