I totally agree on the devastating damage caused by big fast bullets at close range. I've seen it many times with my 460.
I have the exact model and it's a killing machine. Big Brown Bear cower at first sight and head for the hills.
I didn't catch the name of that hot momma in blue. Color really accents her eyes.
I carried a 460 Weatherby for a month moose hunting in one of the largest concentrations of brown bears in the world. Saw at least two dozen and...
What was the asking price? They were $4500 in the early 90's if you could find one.
Did you buy it?
375 H&H and 458 Win Mag. 375 has claw mounted scope. Watch the auctions.[ATTACH]
It's a great deal. Missed the 416 but got the 505. Thanks.
They are rarer than finding a Model A in 404 High Velocity made with same action which is near impossible to find, let alone purchase.
Being built on Oberndorf Magnum Mauser Action makes it highly desirable. A great find!
Mount for your base will look like this. Mine is for scopes with 14mm rail.[ATTACH][ATTACH]
No mention of live ammo being said anywhere.
Non automatic safety is the norm for dangerous game rifles. Single trigger normal operation is to cycle safety to fire second barrel. Sounds good...
Here's an old Mauser 2000 30-06 I used deer hunting on Kodiak. This 60" fox was shot with a 220 grain round nose. The small exit hole is to the...
I used the Nosler Trophy Grade Ammo. They had a big sale awhile ago.
I'll take one case and ship it to Washington because the only drawback to living in Alaska is shipping ammo.
I've used one on Kodiak for years. 300 grain bullets 200 fps faster than 375 H&H. 338 RUM and 338 Lapua are it's competition.
Is the 505 ammo still available?
I use PB Blast with the nozzle. Try that or Kroil where they meet. If that doesn't work get a snap cap and tap it with a cleaning rod.
Sounds like there's some dirt between the pieces. Barrel should slide on and off easily so anything getting between the two will cause it to...
Did you find one?
I love my little Borovnik 9.3x74R. Handles like a shotgun and kicks like a sissy.[ATTACH]
Media always has to write the story for the shock effect. Could have been written as a conservation piece but who cares about that.
This company once supplied Mauser Actions to specification of Westley Richards for their magazine rifles.
Simpson LTD can import it for you and they are very reasonable.
Here's my 505. I searched for two years to find one.[ATTACH]
Front sight looks like a tower. Strange the wedge isn't centered.
Who has such self control to have only one rifle?
Double Gun Headquarters in US has one close to $10K. Your scope is much better. Auction estimates are just that.
Whoever made the rifle chambered it in 458 Win Mag. If someone lengthened it thereafter they should have marked it. Maybe on the barrel under the...
Your rifle looks terrific and no doubt shoots the same.
I thought these models were extractors.
I thought he stated he was going to use it in Northern Canada.
A like new Krieghoff SxS 470 Nitro in excellent condition just sold on Gunbroker for $6k. Can't be a negative for Krieghoff if someone wants to...
This should ruffle some feathers.[ATTACH]
375 Rimless is same as 375 H&H. This one built on a Magnum Mauser as they should be.
You lucky dog. There's no way I would've passed on it based on the pictures. My guess is a Jeffery retailed Mauser then further finished by...
Because the height of my claw mounts are for a 1" tube on the 14mm rail. The height is different and won't work.
26(1") or 30mm tube?
Mark did a great job packing and shipping the Sauer Drilling. Thanks Mark.
I have caliber specific for every rifle. These are for my 470 Nitro.[ATTACH]
He now makes the Rising Block. New video on Facebook. Great concept and function.
