My M70 standard holds 5 down + 1. It’s a Classic stainless 30-06 with wooden stock (lefty). The mag looks magnum length with a small spacer at the...
My auction winnings arrived in the post yesterday!
I had some correspondence with a business called the Hampshire Smokery & Gunroom a while ago- they said they could bring in Zastava’s.
I’ve been thinking very hard about getting a left handed Zastava M70 (M98) in either 6.5x55 or more likely, 6.5x57 as I have a slot for a 6.5mm...
We always kept a long plastic sjambok on top of the fridge- very good on snakes. Also a 22lr with rat shot as well as your garden variety pellet...
Left handed Win M70 Safari Express in 375 HH. My dream rifle.
Any updates on the availability in the UK or Europe?
Anyone here eat hunters breakfast? i.e. fresh liver (impala or wildebeest) cooked in a gravy with pap?
Blue wildebeest ox tail, eland steaks, buffalo fillet, impala potjie... I think a quick kill, the prep, and good cooking makes a massive difference.
Sorry I forgot about them!
In CRF the reasonably priced option are more or less limited to the Zastava M70. CZ and Win M70 Classic are getting harder to find.
My vote also goes to Safari and Outdoor in Pretoria! Could spend the entire day there. Nelson Mandela square is nice to have coffee and browse...
What manufacturers offer the 22 hornet? Always been tempted by a Ruger no1!
Do chimpanzee’s charge when followed in the thick stuff? Best be packing my banana cannon!
Page 27 I believe
The recknagel catalogue lists something very similar
@cmk I hear you about being a lefty! I found a left hand Win M70 in 30-06 and a guy near me has a custom 458 that he is willing to sell, but the...
That is a stunning rifle! Is the 300 RUM receiver different in length or ejection port size compared to say the normal 375 receiver? I know the...
Finally heard back, sorry for the delay! So not loads of buffalo as I originally suggested but 3 shot with Super X Silver tip 170 grain. Nice and...
Welcome! Where in Zambia are you moving to? Lots of useful info available on this group.
Could you provide some info on magazine capacity please?
Sounds like a great farm! My mother’s family used to own one of the Mabula farms, and my uncle has his farm on the road between Rooiberg and...
Hello vnpieter! Whereabouts in Limpopo are you based? What do you have on the farm? You can’t beat the Limpopo bushveld- I grew up on a farm near...
I would need sponsorship from a company to come over from the UK.
Interesting! I have an undergrad in economics (BEcon) then went into geoscience (BSc, MSc and PhD).
PhD in unconventional gas and geothermal...
Any geoscientists here? As a recent PhD graduate I have been struggling to find any meaningful employment in energy/oil etc.
My only issue is with brightly polished stainless barrels shining/reflecting in the bright light.
Maybe get your wife a book on Namibian geology off the web. As another geologist I can attest to the amazing stuff to be found in Nam.
+1 on the sights, and maybe some more weight on the 404 and 458 etc
Calibers to be found on the family farm in Limpopo: 22lr, 223, 243, 7x57, 303, 308, 458 Lott. In terms of ammo availability off the shelves...
Hello from Staffordshire! Where in the UK are you based?
You can count on my business!
Lip balm in a small tube. Mine fits nicely in my nylon leatherman sheath on my belt.
This needs to be spread as far and wide as possible and it needs to be backed up by more evidence-based articles written by well educated people...
That’s a good point about the PH. In my head I always plan as if I were hunting alone totally reliant upon myself.
I think the fine motor skills go out the window when a leopard is grunting in a blur at 5 paces.
As a lefty I’ve always been tempted. There is a...
How is the recoil on the No.1 in 375? Are you not concerned about not having a quick follow up shot?
Thank you for your honesty! I would definitely buy some some your left handed rifles if you had a dealer in the UK or Europe.
All the best!
How’s about a nice pic or two of the rifle to feed our jealousy?
My friend still goes fishing with him regularly so I’ll get some more info and report back.
I know a guy, retired PH in his 70’s, culled loads of buffalo with his 30-30 in Zim. I’ll have to ask him what bullets he used.
Welcome aboard! There is loads of info to be found here. Tell us more about your hunting experiences?
There is a very good 5 book series that was released by the same guy. Exceptionally informative and covers all aspects of rifle craft.
I am in the UK and planning and getting parts together for the same build on the same left handed Win M70. I only have a 30-06 follower and I’m...
Hi Neil! What part of the UK are you from? Sounds like you are on the right path!
