    Its the same thing just other name. Rimless is for use in bolt action rifles and rimmed version was for use in double rifles.

    Thanks Roan, I thought that might be the case, just didn't want to take the time to "look it up."

    They are the same. The .375 Rimmed or Flanged is for double rifles.

    I like the looks of the rifle, except the recoil pad just doesn't look right to me, could just be the pictures but it looks like there is a gap on the right side and the toe line doesn't look correct. At that price I could overlook a few things though!

    That is the first thing I noticed. Made me immediately think the pad has been replaced.

    I would have never guessed you could find a functioning H&H Magnum Mauser for this kind of money.

    Not sure if the recoil pad has been replaced but it has definitely been damaged

    Hope this works

    I wouldn't let the recoil pad effect my decision. They can be replaced and no one will ever know. One thing for sure, you are unlikely to find another one in this overall condition at a similar price. My "vote," BUY IT!!

    I am leaning that way but am waiting to hear back from Holland and Holland on the serial number and anything they may be able to add. as well I wouldn't mind an opinion from @rookhawk

    If I had such a possibility, I would buy this rifle immediately.

    No, it's on the other side of the country, I have family that are close that will help me out once the owner gets back from a moose hunt.

    Yea, the OP is in Alberta, so I figure the rifle is in Canada too. If it were in the U.S. and I knew where, I would already have been tempted in driving or flying there to see it and shoot it! Although if I bought it, that would pretty much guarantee to cancel any African or Canadian hunts I might pull off for next year.

    Only Americans get worked up over this % of original condition nonsense. British owners regularly sent rifles and shotguns back to the gunmaker for repair/ refurbishment as needed. A rifle like this may have been re-rust blued two or three times. Simply means it was well cared for. Only Collectors here treat hunting rifles like rare coins (Winchester’s and Colts are the worst). The English and Continental market is very different. If you don’t want it, please PM me with contact information.

    If I bought this rifle it would go straight back to Holland & Holland for service and repair. Their work is impeccable. Did I mention that you don’t want this rifle? Please fwd the seller contact info!
