      I asked this same question to ActionBob. How does one safely purchase a rifle from this AH classifieds with not knowing the seller or the product their advertising? Thank you!
      1. sierraone
        PM the seller with specific questions and request photos. You must already know what questions to ask about certain guns. I have bought and sold guns on this forum and never had an issue. Once a member has sold a couple of guns successfully, as I have, he will have developed a good reputation that other potential buyers can rely on.

        Thank you! I was specifically looking at Fishhead's .458 WM Whitworth. He's a new member and I just didn't know how to proceed? Thanks!

      Hello again, SierraOne, Re Ruger no 1 in 416 Rigby I bought? My importer reckons the problem is with the exporter, Mark Burger, of N F G R. I The worst part of it is my Doctor says no heavy recoiling firearms, I'm interested in what Mark says about the delay, if it is on the U S end, or over here. If you know, or hear anything, on the subject, please let me know? Cheers, and good hunting!

        Hi Geoff, I will contact Burger later this morning after a doctor's appointment. I am so sorry for this BS.

        Msg has been left for Mark Burger about the rifle asking him to try and track it down (where is it). As soon as I here something back, I will forward it to you. If you want to use my personal email, it is

        Hi Geoff, Heard back from Burger by text. The 1H is with a larger group of items being exported to Australia. The problem is with the group, not the individual rifle. They are all in a secure facility in the U.S. waiting for the problem to be hashed out. I asked Mark to contact your importer and explain this to him. He said he would. Send you email address.

      G'day, Sierraone; I'm back.
      I've started negotiations with the Aussie importer, Black Range Firearms to initiate the purchase; his FF holder is in Montana, I think, so once payment is secured, arrangements would need to be made to send it up there.
      Would it be feasable for you to let me have the serial number please?
      Thanks so much, and have a wonderful summer....

    Have you hunted in Africa?:
    Number of times I have hunted in Africa:
    My favorite African country:
    Only hunted RSA, Northwest and Limpopo provinces
    USA, RSA, Northwest and Limpopo Provinces
    Species I have hunted in Africa:
    Warthog, Blesbok, Impala, Blue Wildebeest, Cape Buffalo, Zebra
    My best African Trophy:
    Cape Buffalo
    No measurements, taken in Limpopo Province
    My favorite African trophies:
    Warthog. My Ph and I by far spent more time hunting a pig than we did any other animal.
    My preferred weapon(s):
    .375 H&H in Africa, .404J for the buffalo....3006 in U.S.
    What weapon(s) do you hunt with?:
    • Rifle
    • Shotgun
    My preferred optic(s):
    Use Weaver 1.5x5 DG scopes on my .375 HH and .404J. These scopes retailed for about $500. I bought one, used it on my .375 for a year with no problems at all. Bought another as they were ending production of this model. Placed in the safe for 18 months before mounting it on the .404 in Oct 17 in preparation for the July 18 buffalo hunt. With approximately 75 rounds through it and a buffalo, zebra and warthog, have had no issues. They will remain on these heavy rifles until I detect a problem.
    Leupold and Nikon on other rifles.
    Vortex binos
    Gear I cannot live without:
    Not much in Africa. Much more needed in the U.S. because you and your hunting buddy have to do it all!!!
    My best hunting tip:
    Practice with your rifle when ever you can. If your rifle's recoil is too much for you to practice with, step down to a smaller caliber
    My other interests:
    Working with and teaching my young grand kids.
