Up for sale is a Model 1999 in 505 Gibbs. I bought this gun from a fellow member on this site. Not sure about the round count, as I only shot about 10 rounds before I realized what kind of beast this gun is. Its way too much recoil for me. I took close pics of some dings on the stock. Other then the dings in the pics the rifle is overall good condition with no feeding issues. Price is $4500 and buyer pays for shipping. I do have dies and a lot of reloading components which I will list separately.

Very nice rifle I am having one built now but have not gotten the reloading items yet if you do want to get rid of some please let me know thanks Jeff
I am definitely gonna be jealous of who ever ends up with this. If it was not for the fact I'm 75 days out from my hunt and I need trophy fee money more than a new rifle right now I would be scooping this up. The 505 is one I have not yet owned. Beautiful rig man and good luck with the sale. Someone will enjoy this very much.
I have two, I particularly like the 525 grain TSX load clocking about 2350 fps. Flat shooting for that big a caliber and hits with real authority and makes a massive wound channel. Recoil is very manageable in the right set up;)
Have the same rifle, love it. I shot it yesterday. Great price. Backyardsmiper you can use mine.
Will be interested in the reloading components.
Thanks for the interest in the components but I do not want to part with the components unless rifle is sold. With all the love this rifle is getting I am getting kind of jealous and might keep it lol. Seeing some great deals on elephant hunts might keep this for next years hunt.
Any idea where I can get another stock for this thing ?
What did you decide?

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
