I have taken the plunge and am purchasing my first (and I suppose 2nd - LOL) double!

I have found a great deal on a 3 x barrel set Krieghoff! (didnt even know you could get 3 x barrel sets!)

its got:
- .470NE
- 9.3x74R
- 20 gauge

Test fired it over the weekend and what a beaut! The original owner had to sell it as he was getting divorced (sounds like a good reason to hang onto it..................... but hey?!)

cant wait to have it in my safe............will post some pics when it arrives!
:cool:

Bloody nice set. In fact to me the perfect set for Africa or Tropical Australia.

Outstanding. I am bitterly jealous about the 20 bore barrels.:) I have a Blaser S2 with .416, .375, and 30-06 barrels. Very cool versatility. Is your Krieghoff OU or SxS configuration?

Thanks for the comments guys

Red Leg, your Blaser is in some nice calibres! I must say I would have preferred the 9.3 barrels to have been 375H&H, but I suppose the 9.3 is a lighter version for PG.

Must agree having a shotgun setup included is a real treat! Never had a 20g shotgun before always been a 12g guy.........but getting used to a double as a shotgun can only make you more comfy with the .470NE when it comes time for quick shooting!

Others seem to be able to deal with it but IMO that manual cocking set up needs to be a learned proposition. I'm not sure I could adapt since I'm used to regular auto cocked rifles.. Maybe I don't know.
Get lots'a shooting in to get the muscle memory to be automatic.
They are supposed to be very well regulated and accurate and well built. I hope that it'll serve you well!!!

Hey Spike,

Thanks! So you know the one...............

Well, I was thinking about a place a little birdy told me about near Mpongwe.................but seems quite steep for a local............:(
Was thinking that those 9.3x74R barrels could be nice for a little waterbuck or similar..................:cool:

I will be negotiating.................

the 9.3x74r would be perfect for everything we have. shoot something for meat , get hold of peteG on here he has been out a few times and shot animals for meat , :)

Nice going Jumbo, that is a fine rifle.
I think a little excursion to mpongwe definitely needs to be on the cards, gotta convince spiket to donate a nice animal to test the 9,3 barrels!!
enjoy it!!!

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
