Hi all, I’m thinking of selling my .404 Jeff to help fund my next hunting trip, any advise on what it might be worth and if anyone might be interested PM me.

It was made by Robert (Bob) Harvey who was an amazing gun maker and smith, it was made on a Mauser 98 action, case colour hardened tastefully with some gold inlay and minor engraving. It feeds and shoots amazingly well, never been further than the range as far as I know, the grouping with irons is perfect if I do say so my self. Have have some ammo, dies and new brass for it as well.

It’s a classic English rifle in every way and I will be sad to see it go but I will just never use it. Any thoughts or interest feel free to share.
I will post some pictures soon as I get in later.
P.S. I’m the U.K. not U.S.A

Fully agree with the above post that there will be Americans interested. But in addition to the photos, ask your dealer in the UK who they recommend to use as an exported to the U.S. The export from the UK and import to the US will be a major expense for the buyer in addition to what you sell it for.

I have looked at this before and it wasn't cheap but that was a while ago so I could ask again and get an up to date quote

That is an incredible
Rifle. You need to rethink this sale. There has to be another way!

May I ask why you think you will never use it? Plains Game only??

British Sporting Arms (BSA) will get this rifle to the US, no problem. They are very good at what they do.

I understand shipping but what’s your asking price?

Count me amongst those that say you'll regret selling this rifle! Find another way to finance that next trip.

Nice rifle.
I support the idea of spending more time hunting. Experiences and Memories are more valuable, so if between the rifle and a hunt... sell the rifle! But, there are always ways to trim the budget.
