It seems to me that if this is your third time to retire, you may want to try to pull it off a few more times before you finally throw in the...
The Hawkeye African .275 Rigby, 6.5 x 55 and the 9.3 x 62 are all Lipsey guns, special builds for them. They were not part of the standard...
@Kycrawler. The Express rifles come in 2506 through .338 Win Mag calibers, but not the 6.5 Swede. The Hawkeye African doesn't have a brake or...
Had just completed a two year contract in Kosovo. But was stuck there an extra week due to the U.S. airport closures. When I finally arrived home,...
@KencoArms, are you offering it for sale? If yes, you should list a price and post a couple of photos.
Bob, their has been at least one member that have been confusing the rifles. The OP is wanting a Ruger Express in 3006, Kycrawler is talking about...
CZ .416 Rigby has SOLD.
I am sure I'm not the only one that is very jealous!
Congratulations....those rifles are hard to come by!
Borderline?....Get on with the report!
Short answer to your multi point question. Besides handguns, short barrel firearms are those 12-16 inch barrel AR type weapons. They are mainly...
Rifle has sold, pending transfer of funds. Thanks for the many contacts I have had on this rifle!
Another great report! Joe you seem to find fun and great hunting anywhere you go. Congratulations!
Not that would be a story within itself! Directly depart from an AK bear hunt to go hunt doves.......2000 miles away!!!
I am pretty sure I have said the same thing about you in the past, only that I had been to your place!
Never been to Dave's house, but I believe I could find hunting/gun related items there which he would have no idea where it came from!
I received the same email twice tonight to my junk mail.
The title is,
You may have a gun..... then when you open the email...It says
As someone previously said.....just look at the bolt!
Mine is a 1992 model and is a push feed.
Have hunted with Pieter twice and hope to maybe hunt with him again next year.
I doubt if I ever hunt an elephant or a rhino, but I am all for the "have countries" exiting! And staying out!
The R8 seems to be the one of the most popular rifles out there now. Even at 6K, it may go pretty fast!
Cal, you and I both know that my knowledge and practice with a double is very limited. But I never would have believed one could make shots at...
Hi Cal, glad to see you had another great hunt! Isn't a 160 yard shot with any double a very long shot? (your gemsbok).

Agree with @Shootist43. Probably much more gun than needed, although on a big Alaskan moose, it might be ok.
The big gun issue in the 70s that I remember was that congress was trying to outlaw all Saturday night specials. (revolvers/pistols with 2 inch...
Welcome to our forum Gerrit! The majority of us have the same interests you do........Imagine that!
Hi Jamie, glad to have you in our forum! Hope to hear about your recent hunt soon! Also hope to make to Montana for a visit before I get too old!!!
@Alistair , IMO, a model 70, .375 HH Safari Express takes care of all your future needs at a price that won't break the bank!
Recently many members of this forum have mistakenly related Mauser model 12s and 18s with the high end M98s. IMO, at least some of these members...
A new M98 Mauser will start around $12,000 in the U.S. You can't compare buying one of these to buying a M70 or Sako. New M98s are rough...
Have put 30-40 rounds through it since the pics were made. Lots of fun to shoot....steel plates at 200 and 300 yds for me. My son can reach out...
A new expression for me that I'll not likely forget!
Patrick, Half the rifles (IMO) that go to Africa each year to hunt are push feed. If you want the 700 and VX2 3x9, then buy it and spend alot of...
#1H 's are one of Bill Ruger's greatest inventions (along with RSMs). Congratulations!
That is a copy of a standard John Rigby Sling. It just doesn't have the stamped Rigby name on each end.
Welcome to our forum DLRX.
Welcome to our forum Thomas. All of the answers to your questions about hunting Africa are here! Good luck in your search.
Congratulations, they are hard to find.
Mine arrived today also!!!
As nearly everyone has said...you do not NEED something bigger that a .375 HH...although you may WANT something bigger.
Welcome to our forum!
@krish specifically what rifle and caliber are you looking for.
If that is your first one, your life will start changing in about 2 years or so....and for the better I might add! Congratulations!
Welcome to our forum Patrick and good luck on your first African hunt! You will love it.
