Hi everyone.
I bought a a-bolt in 375 and took it to the range.
I mounted a leopolt 3-9x 40 scope.
Excellent grouping.
I had it on a rest and in my haste to test the rifle had it wrong on the rest,
After 5 shots the recoil broke the trigger guard, it cracked.
Does anyone know where I can find a new guard in South Africa?

With all the PHs and associated people working the shows here in the USA and Canada, someone should be able to secure one and take it to you. NOTHING illegal about it, it's a piece of metal.

Replace it before you break the trigger as well. I know a guy who fell off a bluff, breaking the trigger guard and trigger of his A-Bolt in one go. End of hunt for him and a nice dent in his hunting budget!

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!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
