Hello Everyone,
I am new to AH and I am very glad to be here. I have been going thru the site and I find everything so interesting.
I have not had the good fortune to hunt in Africa but it is a dream I am going to pursue.
I have a home in California and Alaska. I have been hunting my entire life but only North American animals.
What ultimately brought me here was I was looking at some of the forums a few weeks ago and saw where a member was going to sell a gun on GB and another member said give us a look first, so that is what I decided to do.
I have had the good fortune to be able to collect guns most of my life but now I need to get rid of some of them.
I am not a dealer but just someone who has more than they need, if that is possible.
I'm going to spend the next few days creating threads for each gun. Probably going to take longer than that since I have never posted online before.
Here is a list of what I am about to offer, hope some of you may have a need and be able to enjoy other than being stuffed in a safe.

1. M. Thy's Double Rifle 470 Nitro Express
2. Westley Richards Bolt Action 458 Mag
3. Westley Richards Bolt Action 375 H&H Mag
4. 2 338 Winchester Model 70 Custom Super Grades NIB
5. 375 H&H Mag. Winchester Model 70 Custom Super Grade Express NIB
6. 416 Rem. Mag. Winchester Model 70 Custom Super Grade Express NIB
7. 450 Win Mag, Win. Mod 70 Custom Super Grade Express NIB
8. 470 Chapstick Win Mod 70 Custom Express NIB

You can see I have a few. All the model 70 have the original receipts and Custom Shop paperwork and I purchased them between 1991 and 1996 they are all control feed.

This is not the complete list but enough for an introduction.

Wish me luck on getting them posted with pictures.

Thank you,

Wclint.

I'm looking forward to Hunting Africa. It would be a dream of a lifetime. I am keeping plenty of caliber of guns in order to do that with me my wife and my son. These are and the others I will post are just some I do not need. They are all amazing and need to be in the field.
I will create a post with pictures for each as I read that is what I should per another post.
Been spending the day taking photos of some. I will try and start posting tomorrow.

470 Chapstick... Pretty sure that should be 470 Capstick.
But I'm not complaining or criticizing, Tink Nathan actually said he called Peter Capstick 'Chapstick' for a long time and he never corrected him.

Welcome to our forum Wclint. Good luck selling your firearms on the site. Members here do it all of the time. And good luck on your first upcoming safari. If you have been hunting Alaska for many years, you already good hunting stories and photos to post when you have time!

Hi Wclint,

Welcome to the greatest forum in the world.

What part of CA and AK do you occupy ?

Yours truly was born in Los Angeles but lived in Central CA after about age 15, through my late 20's.

At which point, I finally made good my long standing threat to escape from CA and settle in AK (specifically Anchorage, all these many years).

If Africa is a dream (you have mentioned, "are going to pursue"), I'd guess that by the fact you already own two WR rifles and a Marcel Thys large bore double, money is not the issue.

Well anyway, this forum is the right place to shop for safaris.

Do very thorough research on whichever safari company you narrow your focus on, before plopping your money down and you will be happy you did.

If in Anchorage and you happen to get bored, send me a PM, I will buy the first round.

Regards,
Velo Dog.

That is an impressive list of firearms, I for one will be taking a look at those photos when they show up!

Welcome aboard. You certainly have some nice toys. Looking forward to seeing the pictures. Too bad you don't have a 404 Jeffery for sale, I've been contemplating buying one.
