I'm certainly looking forward to seeing this & congrats! Out of Curiosity, if I'm reading this correct, the 89b in 577 is built on the "Gross Box only"?I ordered an 89b in 577 from Chris in March...hoping to get it by Christmas, but that would be on the early end of the delivery window. I’ll be sure to post pics and video as soon as it arrives.
Also, I asked Chris about “progress” photos, and he seemed to think Heym doesn’t do that anymore. I think the reason being is an decent backlog, and busy shop!

It's from Heym's non-usa page, just translated.I’m right there with you Daniel. They’ve moved me past my “but do I need it?” mentality. I believe one is in my future in the next year or so.
To that end I’m playing the new or used game. If new, I probably need to get moving on a trip to Dallas in the next 6 months. Anyone got an English language version of the current (or recent) price structure for new Heym doubles? I’ll probably call Mr Sells if not. Seeing those will give me a better idea of if the used price overcomes my interest in ordering a new one
Thanks! You can get the .577 in two frame sizes, the gross (large) box, or the jumbo. The jumbo is a slightly heavier (13.2 pounds compared to 13), but WAY more expensive, I believe you can only get the jumbo frame with sidelocks. That being said, I think the 89b looks better anyways. I paid $30k for mine, with a few upgrades, including case color hardening and some bling (gold) on both sides and bottom of the action. They indeed have an upcharge for shorter barrels, but I stuck with the standard 26" for retaining as much weight as possible.I'm certainly looking forward to seeing this & congrats!

Addl, there's an upcharge for 24" barrels?
Many thanks! if you care to comment ..
That is some beautiful wood Daniel.Ok, love the darker wood grains without the red Hughes. "Chocolate" i suppose. Not particularly partial or a fan of the lighter blonde tones. "Blank 379"
Grade 2 engraving, or possibly better yet, standard border engraving. Unadorned as Kevin stated once, "Art Deco" hit home. A pistol grip cap & that's it.

"That's It"! .. It's certainly become a narrow fixation, as most believe I've become peculiar anymore.
Lowdi, if I can ask, What frame was your 450-400 built on?"That's It"! .. It's certainly become a narrow fixation, as most believe I've become peculiar anymore.
None the less, thank you, as I've seen the top photo just browsing google/yahoo? And I say 577 facetiously as I'd like to just see it. 450-400 would be ideal.
Beautiful build Lowdi!, Thank You for the incentive ;
