    Hi all, it has come to the point in life when I have got to sacrifice my best rifles for personal reasons.
    So for sale is my best .375 H&H, it is made by an English gun maker Medwell and Perrett of Suffolk. It is a beautiful rifle, very well balance and shoots perfectly. I have had it completely checked over and cleaned throughout (not that it needed it) the bore and barrel are in mint condition as it has only had a couple of hundred rounds through it, it is built on a Mauser 98 action I believe. I have had the woodwork taken right back re-checkered and refinished in London best oil finish so any dents, scratches and scrapes made in the future can be sanded out and refinished. I have also had all the blueing refinished and a new silvers pad fitted. I just put a new Westley Richards leather sling on the rifle and a new Swarovski z8i 1.7-13.3x42P on top of the original swing off mounts. I have just in the past couple of months done all this work ready for my next hunt in August but I will be borrowing a rifle for this safari now. This rifle is as good as brand new in every way and a new one would cost £12000+ with the attachment if you could even get one made. I would like £8500 with everything included for it but would be open for offers, especially if it s a quick sale. Thank you all for looking.

    A bit of better photo of the rifle as the room is very dark were I took the pictures and it makes the walnut seem almost black and you cant see the piece of ebony on the for end of the gun.

    @Stalker91 that is a very nice safari rifle you have there. Just a friendly bit of feedback...you need to market that locally in the UK, it will never sell in North America. In North America there are two markets: 1.) Entry level utilitarian safari rifles like CZ, Winchester, and BRNO, and 2.) Premium vintage British Safari rifles from Tier-1 and Tier-2 makers.

    Really nice modern custom guns sell in the States for about $0.15 on the dollar.

    I'm not knocking your gun in any way, I'm knocking North American's tastes and willingness to pay for premium, modern, used guns.

    @rookhawk thank you for your advise. I am going to market it on the UK sites over the next couple of weeks and maybe send it to the British shooting show next week as well. I know it’s expensive to ship abroad ect. I just wanted to give the AfricaHunting community a chance at it first as I hoped they would appreciate it more than most would, and find it a good home.
    Thank you for looking

    I think the comments by Rookhawk hit the nail on the head.

    A riflemaker in the UK was recently showing me a new traditional; stalking rifle he’d just built for a client. It had a stunning walnut stock & cost just over 20,000 pounds Sterling (the stock blank; engraved magazine floor plate; swing-off mounts & scope alone were a fair part of that) – the maker said that whilst he could justify his costs he knew that the ‘used’ price of the rifle would be a third of that (albeit that value would remain then remain fairly firm). We agreed that traditionally constructed bespoke rifles are labours of love for maker & owner – they are not good financial investments – but they can the most wonderful investments in hopes, dreams & experiences. In that sense they are beyond value.

    Regards
    Russell

    Double Gun Headquarters in US has one close to $10K. Your scope is much better. Auction estimates are just that.

    It is a bit higher than some found on the auction sites but it’s a nicer rifle and I’ve just spent a lot having it all made like new. And with the new £2500 scope on it also.

    Bare in mind that listing was from 2013 so prices have gone up a bit and it will have 20% sale commission minimum and then 20% VAT on the price it gets sold for.

    Thanks for looking at it.

    I am interested but curious about the process getting it back to the states. Can you PM me? I am interested in the scope if you wanted to sell separately

    This company once supplied Mauser Actions to specification of Westley Richards for their magazine rifles.

    Superb value for this rifle. It's the equal of a 20K custom without the wait.
    Someone is going to get a fantastic deal.
