Yeah, I realize they are made to customer specs and the patron can order whatever they want. I was just surprised that they didn’t have their stocks checkered.

I have had two of the Custom African Express models in 416 Rem. They are exceptionally nice. I sold one and still have the other. The best model 70 for Africa in my opinion but they don’t come up for sale often (as noted)
