I am considering purchasing the synthetic detachable magazine model in 30-06 for my father as a Christmas gift.
I am in canada and can pick one up for fairly cheap compared to other brands just wondering if anyone has any experience with them I can find very little information about them in English.
Thank you

NZ Rod & Rifle and NZ Guns & Hunting have done at least one test between them. Australian Sporting Shooter has also published at least one review over the years.

Hi
I have a 300wm in Sabatti Rover 870, wooden stock.
I am no expert at any stretch of the imagination but my rifle has been good to me. Has a decent action shoots straight.

Should be no problem...all the Sabbatis I am aquatinted with in RSA perform well and are very accurate. My son has one in 25-06. No issues with it.

MPD61 My Sabatti 300 Win Mag just gets better.
Shooting 180gr Rhino - I am no expert or marksman but my rifle is very accurate and I have had no issues at all.
Cheers

I'd like to kick-start this...........
I am looking at a wood with sights 870 Rover in .222 Rem. Seems like a good rifle.
Any further thoughts?

I had a Sabbati rover in 223 a beautiful little rifle very accurate. In my stupidity I sold it to finance a custom rifle. The only problem I had was a loose magazine, easy fix fill the hole with devcon and redrill it. Problems solved.
Cheers Bob.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
