Makes sense. I put talley quick release mounts on all my rifles. I've never done a Bongo, or forest buffalo hunt - not sure how similar my Mozambique experience would be to one of those hunts.If you prefer having a telescopic sight on hand, then I highly recommend quick release detachable scope mounts.
For jungle use, most shots are taken at close range because of low visibility situations in the dense foliage. Game present themselves in such scenarios that you need a rifle setup which you can simply snap up to your shoulder, instinctively line up your sights and pull the trigger.
That's a good point - those jungle hunts are expensiveRifle wise?
If you can afford a firest jungle hunt you can afford above....
Other option would be a O/U double 9.3x74R one barrel quality expander the other a quality solid brass bullet....I would fit a ghost ring rear sight....
For illustration , many many hours in rainforestI have lived in Gabon for 39 years (tropical forest or jungle as you say).
I've been hunting there since I lived there.
In my humble opinion, the best weapon for this type of biotope is the Winchester Super Express in 458 MAG, believe me. She is short (therefore easy to handle in the forest), does not need a scope given the short shooting distances, the ammunition is easily found if needed and it is not expensive (the weapon).
I also have an HK 940 in 7.64, a 375HH as well as an Express in 500 nitro.
