That rifle has been on Ralph’s site for a while. Looks as if it has some rust and imperfections along the left rib, minor handling marks on the stock. Could probably get it a little cheaper than 21k Canadian. That’s just 17386 USI will share a link, it is around 21,000 Canadian so probably 5000 usd lol

They have a bunch of nice doubles on that site. Many in 500, so that made me a bit cautious about buying a 500 . I was tempted by the Kreighoff in 500/416.
When I did see the 470 I did buy on another site I just fell in love with the wood, couldn't pass it up and the price was very fair. That Heym will stay in my memory for a long time.
So 9-10 months delivery time? That’s pretty good. Is that standard or did you get a rush put on it because of an upcoming hunt?
I bet the wait was painful. That must be what @Kevin Peacocke is going through right now.It’s my understanding that they already had an unclaimed 450/400 action in process so that expedited things a bit. I was told 6-7 months from start to finish. I’d of had it far earlier as the gun was finished in March; however, delays by the shipping brokers and customs set delivery back over two months.
Did you order the ghost ring sight as discussed?It is likely I will have to learn to love an RMR in the future, but I will put it off as long as I can. The look down that landing strip with the bold V and the dot is almost worth it even if you can't see what you are shooting at as well!
I am pleased you liked it, which one was best? We like Vumba. When you get back IvW maybe we go and see Andrew, I need to handle a Heym once more before I head back to Zim, it will be for a long stretch.The Zim coffee is great by the way...many thanks...
I am off on a meat hunt expedition from tuesday...freezers are running low
Here is a short review of mine.It is likely I will have to learn to love an RMR in the future, but I will put it off as long as I can. The look down that landing strip with the bold V and the dot is almost worth it even if you can't see what you are shooting at as well!
