Well like others with nowhere to go right now I got caught up and found a Ruger African in 6.5x55 that I had to buy.
Money will be sent tomorrow and hopefully will be in possession in a week or so.
Used but like new in box for $900
Didn't haggle the price as it's getting hard to find rifles like this.
I have a low cost burris timberline 2x7 I plan to install when it arrives.

Money has been sent and now anxiously waiting.
Ordered 3 different boxes of bullets to try when it gets here.
This is the older burris 2x7 I plan to install.
The only other loose scope I have is a 6x18 leupold that doesn't seem appropriate.

Very nice rifle complemented by a classic cartridge.

Well done, great purchase.

Keep this one in the family, pass it down to the kids.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

On the vx6 2-12 what does the zl2 stand for?

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
