There are only a handful of these running around best I can figure
When I got it bolt was stuck I sent it to Bull Creek Arms he fixed the problem included is the letter he sent me for the repairs
I shot the rifle when I got it back functions great I am just selling it with a few others to fund a new project
Rifle is in good shape with a few scratches on the stock from use

I have a sneaking feeling that a malfunction with an autoloader is not nearly as common as misworking a bolt action in the heat of battle....
Yep, hard to short stroke an auto. LOL

Just curious if African countries will allow semi automatic centerfire rifles? Looks like it would be an incredible big bear rifle!
Most won't allow...Yes on the Bear Rifle!
I left one with Dave Clay years back to be converted but after 2 years of waiting I told him to send it back...

PM me when you get a chance, have a few questions for you.

Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375

Just checking to see if you got the second package of shells I sent you?
