    O.k. I promised more and here they are. The first is the Heym .577 Nitro. What a rifle! Now after shooting the AHR .600 OK and now this I have to say this Heym is a thumper. Granted I was shooting reduced loads in the 600ok with 900 grain bullets, this time they were std loads with 750 grain bullets in the 577 Nitro.

    This next rifle is a single shot 450 nitro express falling block of unknown maker. Trying to figure that out, the engraver is known but has passed away so research is needed. Nice rifle and shooter.

    The last is a AHR full stock 375 h&h built on a CZ action with scout scope.

    The heym put two two rounds right at an inch at 50 yards. Very nice rifle.

    I have a video of me shooting it but not sure I want to post it.

    I shot my model 70 super express in 375 too just for some practice, it was 103 f yesterday so it was a little steamy.
    My buddy is taking the Heym to Namibia in Oct for Elephant.

    @Southwind Where did you get that recoil pad on the 450NE? I think I need one.

    Very nice rifles. Someday I will own a nice double and a nice Farquharson style single shot.

    only thing I really saw wrong was you holding the sticks instead of the rifle, otherwise it looks like you did fine. (y)

    hi paul just got back to me. the price is £3,500.00 plus shipping. i think for the rifle you would end up with finished to your measurements, that this is a cheap price ....i thought it would be a couple thousand more.....here is link to his contact page.
