Good Lord, I didn't know that it had ever been done. They should issue an antitank gun carriage with the purchase on which to mount it. Would love to look at that action - it seems awfully "normal" looking. And scoped!?!

Cem, I just did a quick search of their importer's website. Their list of available calibers did NOT include 600NE. You might try sending Heym an email to see if they build them on a special order basis.

Makes you wonder if it was someone's project. And scoped!?!

I had one years ago in 500 NE......I know they also did 600 ...Possibly 577 but not sure....think it was only for a short period of time..... Could be wrong but don't think they make them anymore....

Just took a closer look at the 1996 Gun Digest...says it weighs about 9.9#.
Not having a big bore or ever even shot one myself, I have no real understanding of how that would go over in a 600NE.
Does that seem light to anyone else?

154lbs of recoil in a 12lb gun is about 180lbs of recoil in a 10lb gun. I know of no scope or mounts that can withstand that recoil. It’s over 150% the recoil of a 4-bore.

Exactly. Needs that antitank gun carriage. I dare say the bore is in pristine condition.

Reminds me of the half dozen boxes of 460weatherby ammo I’ve purchased at flea markets. Always 19 rounds in the box!

The only easier I way I know of to loose an eye is to look down the barrel of a loaded gun.

600 NE from a 10 pound gun... NOPE! but i really doubt that weight is for the 600 NE gun.

be neat to get a bolt gun in 577 NE though.

Appreciate your info and feedback, I looked at some European websites to try and get info on the value of this particular Steyr. Further input from you on it's value would be appreciated as you have a bunch of them. I assume you collect the Steyr Luxus for a reason ---they are a finely built rifle.
I’ll never hunt Africa, but give me please a Jack O’Connor hunt up high in the Canadian Rockies!
Just came from a hunt and already longing for the bush
