A 375 is a fine fine time tested classic and as they say dead is dead but I am a BIG BORE guy who prefers the much larger calibers of
.500-.700 ! Just depends on your quarry ...I started with my dads .458 as a younger teen and took everything from Turtles to Nutria and Hogs n Deer with it! I just like big fat heavy bullets and if your ranges are under 150 this is fine..longer ranges the 375 ...Oh yes I have taken 458s to Africa and took my first few Buff wirh one and several one shot kills with Barnes 450 X bullets and some came out the other side! I just love "horsepower" lol (I use
.600s now) I also have a Win 70 .375HH in push feed i may sell...message me if interested..Happy Trails
I am sorely tempted, but the forum here talked me into starting with a 375H&H...Might hold out for a Kimber Caprivi...I am sure this will sell though!

My original plan was to go straight for the big bore 458. Cooler heads prevailed and the ammo (while still expensive) is more affordable for the 375.

@SAFARIKIDD (or anyone else who knows) - do you happen to know if this rifle weighs the same (9.0 lbs) as the current production Mod. 70 Safari Express rifles?

This is a current production
Thank you. I understand the Portugal Model 70's are from 2018 forward, so I knew it was fairly recent manufacture and NIB (just wasn't sure which of those years it was actually manufactured), I just wasn't sure if the weight was the same each year or if they had changed it (or not) between 2018 and now for some reason.

I'll assume since it's the same model and the same manufacture that it's also the same weight for each year.

Thanks again.

wonderful rifle. With the demand so high i imagine many big bores will be getting a premium on the used market.

Actually, the market in big bores is moving in the opposite direction - has been for a little while now.

Hmm interesting . Almost all distributers are out of stock from what I can see. But that is most guns, not just big bores

I'm certainly no expert, but they may be out of stock due to reduced manufacturing rather than increased demand. If they've reduced manufacturing to a couple runs a year, it could conceivably be fairly easy for inventory to stay low / sold out.

I think you have the right of it. CZ rep told me they stopped the Safari because there was not enough interest. Everyone is into tacticool guns now

Tacticool.....:Vomit:
Not me brother. Give me walnut and blue over anything resembling tacticool any day. :D Beers:

But then again, there's no arguing personal taste I suppose.

Most likely the case. Every other firearm is in the highest demand. My company is seeing gun manufacturing go in 7th gear .

The young kids have been raised by their moms and babysat by video games. It's no wonder the world and guns are going to sh@t. Lol!

That too.

In addition to the slow decline in demand for everything that doesn't look like an AR, there are fewer and fewer opportunities that actually require a rifle in .40+ caliber. And judging by the number of pristine used ones in the market, the charm of using a .416, .458 et al as a fun plinker seems to wear off pretty quickly.

G’day Geoff,
Mate, I noticed you purchased a rifle from overseas.... can you tell me the procedure of importing a rifle to Australia from a private seller?
Cheers
AGNK
I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
