In short, with a year's out build time out of the equation, I regret the opportunity to purchase an 89 that was readily available, to a point. There were some spec's that didn't appeal?!? ..

I was curious 89 owner's POV's, pics "if you care to share", etc. &..
their 577. I've seen receiver sizes up to 500 N.E. in the 89, however how much difference is in the receiver, is it strengthened/Bolstered when built for the 577?
Many Thanks! They are Beautiful!

The frame sizes have not changed between the 88B and 89B as I have been told. Below is a picture. Note that you can have a .577 in either a large frame or a jumbo frame with corresponding weight and cost increase.

https://www.ziegenhahn.de/ Thank You Chris.

With respect to the particular 28 I had the opportunity to handle, it was a breed apart .. respectfully so considering the above. I'm sure their rifles out of the equation, for me at least.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
