my 404 Jeffery - finally

The rifle is STUNNING mate.. And a fantastic calibre. I would love to build myself a custom 404j, was thinking about it today actually. Was pretty happy to come across yours. Well done.
 
so I've been holding out on posting this until I received the license in my hands.

I FINALLY found and purchased a 404 Jeffery CZ550 safari classic to match my 416 Rigby and 375 h&h also in CZ550.

.
Hello , why to match .416Rigby , .375H&H and .404 Jeffery ?
Would have you not to prefer to acquire a 500 Jeffery or 505 Gibbs , the upper level .. ?

I have a 470 NE double and that is pretty much as big a caliber as I am happy and comfortable with for now , my next double that I am busy with is a 450/400

I am more than confident that all of my large and dangerous game can and will be taken with these calibers.
 
if I wasn't a gun nut then I would only own two rifles. a 30-06 for small and medium game and a 416 RM for large and dangerous game. with this two gun combo I wouldn't feel under gunned hunting anything on the planet.

Very nice I like the wood. Going to re-barrel my Ruger 375 RSM into 404 jeff, it is one of the big bores I have wanted for a long time. Thanks for the motivation(y)
Matt if I had to stick with bolt guns a 7x57, 9.3x62, and a 404 Jeff would cover my needs. Thank goodness we can have a few more in the safe.
 
Cutting the barrel?!?!?! Blasphemy!:eek: How much? I left mine at 24". Going to scope it?
I sure like the way a .404 shoots.
My 404 will not have a barrel any longer than 22 inch and maybe 21 in with at least a number five contour Barrel but maybe a five and a half barrel Contour. Rifle weighing at least Ten pounds maybe 10 and a half. Quarter rib Express sights.
 
i think i should revive this old thread of mine , i never posted the pictures of the 3 lever safety and a few years later i had a new stock made .
in the coming days i will post new pictures .

Just like the inception of this thread. Promises of future pictures. :)

Looking forward to them.
 
This new stock and 3 lever safety was completed a few years ago , I actually forgot about this post and @rnovi comments .
i was tinkering about with my 404 and thought I would post on it again.
i am located in South Africa and I am not aware of any other CZ550 404’s that came out of the USA custom shop in SA.

I would like to know if there are any others around in SA ?

The photos taken don’t do it justice, I will take some proper photos outside in the sun to really show the rifle.
