I have paid for one in full and its inbound from Italy!! After reading this I'm getting slightly concerned.
ive posted this pic twice or more but cant find it,im sure folks are tired of seeing it but i have to stick up for my sabatti double in 9,3x74r,im not a rifle person but bought this gun in 2012 just to have a rifle in case i ever wanted to go to namibia where they dont allow handguns.i had to use it in 2014 in africa as the airlines we flew stopped transporting handguns from joberg to final destinations so the sabatti.i did ok,got a hippo,sable and cape buff bull.on the bad side,heavy triggers,hard to open.on the good side,the target speaks for itself.the stiffness and trigers can and will be taken care of if i ever decide to use it again.i do love my handguns.target is 50 yards.the shots touching the red are the hornady ammo the gun was regulated with,the wider shots are the woodleigh hydro solids i shoot in my scope sighted encore in 9.3x74r.
New ones should be great. The bad ones were made for a sporting goods store in the USA called Cabela's. Sabatti took shortcuts to fill the order and problems came out of that production run. I hear good things about them now.Im in Norfolk. Im getting it directly from the importers so if theres anything wrong with it when I go to pick it up its not coming home with me
Well once I have shot it I'll let you guys know how I got on with it. Any one know what the recoil pads on them are like? Any good or about as much use as tits on a fish?New ones should be great.

What you dont realise is just how small I'am!! Id say I'm about a 1/4 of a Pieter so I think I need to be slightly concerned about the recoil. On the flip side I have read that little people take recoil better.A man that buys a 416 double should not worry about recoil. Will push your shoulder like a fly.
does anyone know the address or phone number of whos importing sabattis now in the usa?name of who and phone number would be great.
