1) l am currently based in London, U.K.
2) Having done my RESEARCH (thanx to Africa Hunting Forums), found that the Safari Rifle ideal for me now is a CZ550 Safari Magnum chambered in .375 H & H or .404 Jeffery ?
3) Availability & Reasonable Pricing CZ550 Safari Magnum Rifle (DG) is virtually non-existent in London, U.K. (exception being H & H), (In U.S.A), CZ is well established. Here there's nothing. Closest CZ Rifle Shop is in Prague.
4) If l was to purchase the Rifles from U.S.A. / Prague, importing them, tax duty e.t.c. would be a nightmare l believe for me.
5) URGENTLY NEED HELP & ADVISE - It seems that the CZ Rifle is readily available in Zimbabwe / South Africa.
6) How are the Hunters & P.H.'s able to obtain these guns there? Who are the dealers?

Please help me or lead me in the right direction.
Your Sincerely,

Jake.:confused:

I'm not sure a non-citizen can purchase a rifle in either of those countries but I really don't know. Good question for sure. I'm sure someone will hop on and clear it up.

First of all am I sure about that you will at least be able to buy the gun in Germany and I would also guess you can buy it in France too.
Since you live in UK, I don't think you will need to pay much tax duty e.t.c. if any at all since Germany, France and the Czech Republic also are members of the EU if you import it from there.

Don't know about Zim but in SA you can't buy a gun without a specific license. You can't get a license unless you are a citizen or perm. resident.

I have about 3 clients that I know off from the UK that has bougth themselves CZ rifles in 550 one a 458 Lott I'm sure if you look around and ask around a bit more you will find the correct details and I'm sure there is a CZ agent in the UK. I remeber something like that vaguely when I was in the UK for marketing and have been on some of the shows.

Hi, you can't buy the gun in Zim without exporting it directly! You may as well just order it from CZ direct! I suspect getting the import permit and licencing for the UK may prove the biggest challenge!
Come on splash out a little and buy from H&H!!:)

Gents... Dit klink net... Toe maar... I myself would not entertain any response or commentary on this thread at all, perhaps because im not qualified or experienced enough, maar lees net tussen die lyne.

Cheers,

Buy it in UE!
You will be able to find it on the internet in France, then have it shipped to the UK. It may require a bit of paperwork (such as a UE gun passport) but it is achievable. Another option is to identify the gun in France/Germany, then have a UK gun dealer buy it for you and take care of import.

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!
