Whitworth; Zastava built gun and imported by Interarms. (Same action and manufacturer as Remington 798)

Blueing and metal is in good shape. There are a few stock dings; I'm second owner and I think the first just liked to show off his elephant gun. Missing sight hood. Original whitworth recoil pad. 13 5/8" trigger to pad. Holds 3 in magazine; I've never tried "snapping" the extractor over one in chamber. Trigger bow release. 8 1/4 lbs on my scale for just rifle.

$725 plus shipping. Postal money order.

If I weren’t already 2/3 the way through a 416 build I’d snatch this up in a heartbeat...

My original plan was to build a 458... but I got a deal on a 416 Taylor barrel that I couldn’t refuse.. so I went that direction...

I made a good deal on this a while ago; shot a few boxes of factory ammo through it to fool around a bit, and now sending it along.

I have decided to sell a few things that I'm just not going to use anytime in the near future in the field.

I also have a set of used RCBS dies I bought but have not used that could go along for additional $25. I'd send brass too, but have sold that local.

Anyone halfway serious about this rifle better buy it before you-know-who sees it!

Few marks, front of trigger bow has marks (shooting rest maybe?), small scuff at pencil point, a few dings on comb area of stock. I think my description of good condition is accurate; its not pristine, but I don't think it would disappoint anyone for the price that I think is fair.

Hello,
Do the serial numbers on the rifle and bolt match? Is this an adjustable trigger? What would shipping be to 8530?
Thank you

Surprised this hasn't sold.

The market has definitely shifted.

Solid rifle, good name, CRF, large bore at 2/3 the price of five years ago.

As far as I know its all original......I think these have adjustment for weight, but I have never had it out of stock.....maybe someone can comment who has one.

Theres only 4 digits of a zip code in your post but assuming 85301 as a basis....shipping is going to be around $45-50 to your FFL from individual.

If it needs to go FFL to FFL, then I think a shop near my charges $25 for his service.

I hate to mention, but did you notice that the stock is cracked on both side of the rear tang screw? This is fairly classic with "industrial grade" inletting of large caliber mauser actions...

The gun can still be made into a 'bomb-proof' DG gun with a Bell & Carlson stock (https://www.bellandcarlson.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_ID=1106) and a 3-position safety retrofit (Dakota, Pacific Tool & Gauge, Gentry, Brownells, etc.). Willing to bet that the action is long enough to allow the chamber to be open for .458 Lott.

I noticed that too, wondered if anyone else did. These rifles are bedded pretty well in two places, at least my .375 is. Trigger is fully and easily adjustable.

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!
