You can have friends that are good or nice, very rarely both. Bad influences in this case fall into the good category haha

Where are you hunting your buff?

And it's almost a crime to not post pics!

I think he loved the rifle but the recoil was ferocious. I think he bought a 450-400 Chapuis and was very happy . I believe the thread showed the 470 was just 9 pounds, so it would hurt a bit.

Hi @Rare Breed, what was the sequel to this? Are you still happy with the Rizzini Rhino 470? Any problems? My friend @Barn has been offered one and we know nothing about it.
Kevin they are beautiful guns but too light. My Rizzini weighted 9.8 pounds but most 470’s I e learned are more in the 12 pound plus range. Even with my L.O.P. Right the recoil was just too much for me and I am 6:2 225 pounds and played college football and still too much for me. If you can add weight should be fine

@Rare Breed it is an interesting phenomenon that bigger gentleman sometimes fell more recoil in that you take more recoil to start moving a 225lb mass vs 175lb mass.

But a 9lb 470 will have a pretty sharp recoil that no matter who is shooting they will feel it. The two good things about a 9lb 470 is it is easier to carry when on elephant tracks, and you never feel recoil when taking a shot on the elephant

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
