Hi Gert. I am interested.

What are the pins going down the rear of the stock cheek piece?

It has a 25 1/2 inch barrel.

How can I get to view this rifle? I am in Pretoria.

I don't collect I want to use it for hunting.

Anything else come with the rifle? Ammo, die, bag, bullets?

Thanks
Cheers

Don458, I requested the moderators to delete the photos. I needed to focus only on the 7x64 Brenneke to sell. The challenge to purchase a rifle in South Africa and permanent import it to the USA will not make the purchase of this 9.3x64 Brenneke viable. I will be able to get hold of a well looked after 9.3x64 Brenneke if a South African buyer wants one. If you still are interested I can send you the possible seller`s contact details. You can pm me.(y)

That's a fine rifle, in one of my favorite calibers. I have a CZ 550 Lux in 7x64 and it may be the best shooting rifle I own. Good luck.

The 7x64 caliber is according to many hunters a flat shooting rifle ...the 9.3x64 is the one with great penetration using new generation/technology bullets(y)

I didn't know the first thing about 7x64 Brenneke rifles until my son got one for his first big game rifle. (what's not to love, 17lbs of felt recoil and more punch than a 7x57?)

I'm here to report back that it has mystified both me and the professional guides we've used. My son is shooting the 7x64 using factory Barnes TTSX ammo, 140gr, at about 2950fps. When the bullet hits, the animals react like they've been spined. Thor's hammer, bolt of lightning, dead right there. This is when he is doing proper heart-lung shots that SHOULD have the animal run 10-100 yards before expiring.

My unscientific conclusion is that the 7x64 has just enough additional speed over the 7x57 to create a pressure bubble that causes hydrostatic shock and causes the animals to immediately have a stroke. (back pressure on the vascular system going right to the brain). I'm a huge 7x57 fan and user but I've never had the reactions that a 7x64 seems to cause to game.

Sorry to thread-jack, but it was my way of complimenting the gun and suggesting its not just good, its an amazing weapon and caliber.

*I was not paid for this endorsement.

Its an excellent round. I have not shot anything with one but owned several and its the ballistic equal to the .280 Remington, two peas in a pod. Include also the .284 Winchester in this mix. My boy used his .284 with 140 Barnes Triple Shocks at just over 3000 fps and the result is the same, quick kills.
Its also my experience that the 7x64 and .280 Rem are easier to load for than the 7x57, insofar as accuracy is concerned.
