This rifle started its life as a Saur 12g shotgun but has been converted by a gunsmith to 450 3.25" NE. I purchased this rifle at one of the shoots in AK from another forum member and shot a box of Hornady factory loads threw it then lost interest (I prefer larger guns). the action is strong and locks up tight and in general the gun is well built. I haven't played too much with finding an ideal regulating load but Hornady factory ammunition would be suitable for hunting. its a very nice double considering its cost but I feel its important to mention the gun is fairly muzzle heavy (the weight is in the barrels). the rifle does have some minor surface rust spots on the action (pic 5) and some damage to the rear sight (last picture). all in all this would make an excellent working rifle or a hunting rifle that you don't need to worry about dragging around in the bush.

weight: 11 pounds 1 ounce
LOP: 15"
barrel length: 24"
extractors

im asking $4100.00 + shipping for the rifle. this is what I have into it, so im afraid im not taking any lower offers. feel free to ask question and more pictures can be taken upon request.













thank you
-Matt

Not bad, comparable to the Sabatti in cost.

Bro if I had the $$$$ right now I'd jump all over this as it's the only double I'd be able to afford in a caliber I really like.

I got a better idea, you should buy it from me. it would make an outstanding hog cannon that would be inexpensive enough for you not to worry about using it in the field.

I hear those TX pigs can be real nasty, especially when you find a sow with piglets.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
