Many years ago I went to ShotShow in Melbourne, Australia and had the privilege to meet Jerome from VC (now at Rigby) and was lucky enough to fondle a beautiful VC in 600NE. This started my love of doubles and big bores and now own a few of my own. It recently came to my attention that the 600NE I fondled all those years back was available. After a few calls and a bit of a wait she has arrived, and as beautiful as I remember. I now need the most locked down city in the world to open up so I can let it breathe some fire. Enjoy the pix and I'll provide an update once free.

Gorgeous looking rifle and, in 600NE, certainly falls into the realms of 'shoulder mounted artillery piece'!

Excellent addition. Seems like it was meant to be after all those years. Definitely makes me want to expand my collection

Congrats @DEFYET!! That’s a beauty. I really like the lumber on it along with everything else about It. My VC Azur Imperial is almost identical except it is in 450 NE.

Hopefully you will get your hands on it soon.

So sad that the idiotic government ensured that the rifles chambered in 600 Nitro are banned in Canada as they exceeds the government's maximum energy limits.

I can imagine how many gangs would rush out to commit crimes with such guns.


577 still good to go though!

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
