So the .400 and .465 Holland & Holland are GONE already? If so, are they still proprietary cartridges?

So much for bespoke. Offering but a single cartridge to me sounds more like a semi-custom “we’ll cut the stock to your LOP only” deal.

Must be missing something.

interesting. I thought they used Prechtl. But haven’t been paying that close attention recently.
George Gibbs, Westley Richards and James Purdey use Mayfair Engineering Magnum Mauser actions. John Rigby uses Blaser Magnum Mauser actions.

You can also convert it to side safety. I recently did this to a M98 actioned Musgrave in .375. And a Mahillon in 9.3x62 with an FN action. Makes for snappy shooting when the debt collector comes charging!

Considering how much money the hopefully former social media team and their marketing turne into a luxury boutique its understandable its presumably for a while until they are getting back up again.
I certainly hope so, Per. That said. My personal favorite English gun maker will always be Westley Richards, however. Just a preference.

Seriously, the original poster asked a question about a critical safety issue.

Id bet worn sear or trigger adjusted way down??? That can be spooky and dangerous when that type of thing happens! YIKES! I had it happen on a pre war model 70 in 270 win. Took the safety off and it went BOOM! That was a different issue but same surprising OH CHIT! type of situation!

I've got a couple of hundred dollars in my wallet if you're dying to get rid of it :)

I'll take a H and H in .465 with a critical safety issue? But, nobody on AH or anywhere else has even seen a .465 cartridge, let alone an actual rifle in that cartridge, so carry on. LOL

I would strongly recommend sending it to J.J. Perodeau in Tulsa. He is an expert on these guns. My other thought if it is a real Holland & Holland with a dangerous flaw why not call them?
