Hello all I'm new to the site and was looking for a thread on peoples favorite african rifles from there own collection. When i think of safari the guns are a big part of the trip. I have my first trip planned next august and even though its only for plains game i had to have a 416 ruger built. I got a call from the smith last week that my metal work and bluing was done and it will be in the mail on Monday. For the action i went with a classic fn mauser. the barrel was fit with a 2leaf express sight, swivel band and a banded front sight. For the stock i went with a extra figured bastone walnut. All the wood work was done by me it has two cross bolts with ebony plugs and a ebony forend cap and to add a little flare a skeleton grip cap. I mean whats a trip to Africa without a fancy big bore. Anyway i added a few pics of stock will add pics of the complete rifle when it arrives.
