HEYM 88 Professional Hunter - .470 Nitro Express with extractors

Listing for an elderly friend that is hanging up his safari spurs; this rifle was ordered and while waiting for it to be delivered medical issues arose and he decided to leave it in unfired new in box condition.

Comes with Heym factory hard case, regulation target & blank warranty registration card.

$18K Firm(what he has in it) - 3 Day (NON-FIRING & doesn't leave FFL) inspection period, serious inquiries only and all questions/contact through PRIVATE MESSAGE.

Forgive the picture quality, we took them outside for natural light.

Thank you all for the kind words - If I didn't already have a .470 that I bought from this same man & being 60 days into starting a new business I would have bought this rifle myself in a heart beat.

PARA45 - He's already fully recovered and doing well; he just decided that he wants to see parts of his collection go to people who will enjoy and use them while he's still around.

Dazzled by the speed at which the as-new rifle sold for as-new price. With extractors no less! Shows how good Heyms actually are and how much demand there is for high quality guns that take awhile to special order.

Congrats to the seller and buyer.

Is it sold to the forum or a wholesale offer (or both)?

Not really sure exactly what the question is here.... Are you curious as to the purchaser being a private individual or a dealer?

The PENDING sale is to a private individual who is a forum member.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
