      If you still have the Brockman pop up sights and are willing to part with them for a quick profit, I am interested.

      I had a pair on a Lott, however, the base screws sheared and I lost the rear sight.

      If interested: PM me

        I fit the front and rear bases and solder them in place. Cost was my time. I then cera koted the barreled action and put it all back together. It feed well. But you may have to do a little file work on the action side rails if it doesn't feed properly.

      Yes I reload, but have never tired 350gr only 480-500gr. Headed to south Africa Limpopo region for Cape buff and cape eland.

      Oh by the way, where you heading to in Africa and what's on the list?

      Thank you for that Dave. On your 450NE have you got any experience with 350g soft nose bullets, that is assuming you reload? I just got some in and am battling to find data. Currently running 500g Hornady solids with 90g to give 2200 ft/s, also gonna try some 450g Barnes X.
      Regards David

      Hello AzDave, I have a 450NE in an over under double. Been thinking about a second set of barrels for it to shoot smaller game and possibly with a bit more range. I was thinking of a 9.3x74R and noticed you have both these calibers, what do you think?
      I have a 9.3x62 in bolt action therefor this helps reloading material.
      1. AZDAVE
        I really like my 9.3x74R Chapuis double. Plenty of power regulated very well. I am taking it to Africa this year as a backup for my 450NE. I would reccommend it as a second set of barrels. I can share some load data for swift, woodleigh, and northfork bullets. Dave
