They sell prettier rifles. Just not for $10k.
Youre right! $13k plus wood upgrades. If I can get the above rifle for a deal I’ll buy but won’t be spending new $ on a used rifle.

I totally agree; however, I find myself drawn to the rifle you posted. If I weren’t going you know where soon I might be a player on it.

How much is the seller asking? For 10k you can get a new one from Chris and pick your wood. Beautiful wood definitely adds to the enjoyment of hunting with a fine rifle. That having been said, I think the pictures still don’t do it justice. Lighting is better but it’s still somewhat low resolution making the wood look grainy. Bet you it looks much better in person.

No sir you can’t..... Spoke to Chris regarding just that. It’s 13 plus wood upgrade.
The rifle the way I want is $13800 but for that I’d buy a double.
Or join @JHT soon!

I do agree though that the lighting is killing the pictures and making it look worse.

It is also my understanding that $10k won’t touch a new one from Chris although he does have a surplus I’m told.

True. He is down on 404s but does have a surplus of 416s. He told me that he may offer something like a “discount” soon.

The PH model went for $10K when I bought mine in 2020. They have plain wood, much like this rifle. I paid $12K for mine with upgraded wood. It was beautiful.

Yes yours was gorgeous!! I should have bought it!
If I could buy a rifle like yours new for I would be showing everyone pictures!

Unfortunately I’m only looking for a 404 in the express or 450-400 /450 NE double.

I haven’t bought one in a few years so I’m probably a little behind on the price. They usually have a DSC show special that cuts the price a bit or throws in a scope. 12k with upgraded wood sounds about right.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
