    Looking For A Sabatti Baikal Spartn 45-70 Double Rifle

    Thats a gorgeous rifle, CRS. I would love to have one like that but the wife seems to think we need to make morgage payments. :)

    Looking For A Sabatti Baikal Spartn 45-70 Double Rifle

    You may contact IFG-USA. Last I recall they still had some. And when it needs regulated Ken Owen is your best bet. I just got my 450/400 back from Ken and he did a terrific job!

    Sabatti Safari Double Rifle

    I managed to get ahold of Ken Owen. He is still available to work. So I will be sending it off to him after my trip. If anyone else has a similar issue I recommend looking him up, and I'll post an update when I get the rifle back.

    Sabatti Safari Double Rifle

    I have been working on loads since I got it and everything has shot in the same area. I have not tried a different bullet yet which I guess will be my next step after the holidays.

    Sabatti Safari Double Rifle

    Well Erik, I stated that i was told the rifle would only shoot with Old Hornady ammunition, only after I was told to buy a box of factory to try. When it didnt work James was not surprised and told me that of course it didnt work, hornady had changed the load. If i may ask where did you have...

    Sabatti Safari Double Rifle

    Well Gizmo, yes you are correct. And as I mentioned in my post. With ammunition you can no longer get. I was told by James High the current produced ammunition will not work in that rifle. Is this James or Justin? PS. I also have target of groups shot with current factory ammunition. From...

    Sabatti Safari Double Rifle

    I'm a new member but a long time reader here. I similarly came across a deal on a sabatti much like this one. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. I bought one, poured about another thousand into ammunition trying to get something, ANYTHING, that would shoot out of it. IFG told me to load above hornady...
