Whitworth Express Rifle .375H&H

I have decided to go with .416Rigby for an up coming water buffalo hunt so for sale we have this rifle which I purchased in September and I have learned loads about Whitworth rifles and this one in particular.

Markings show it to be a 1975 production- apparently the previous owner likes to get rifles and have his gunsmith do them up right and then move onto the next project.

$975.00 Cash only, located in Texas and willing to ship but not to California. Contact by PM ONLY!

Took it to the range one last time today, this group was standing, 50yds with open sights; ammo was 350gr Woodleigh SP loaded with RL22 powder.

1 Standing V & 2 folding leaf sights, original front sight hood, Birmingham proof marks, LOP 14", Pachmeyer Decelorator recoil pad, excellent trigger, pillar and glass bedded action and bottom metal, and I believe the for end has a rod epoxied in it and whoever did the bedding job apparently went all out with both the action and bottom metal, tang relieved and bedded, cross bolt added before the grip and epoxied in a + configuration with the vertical pillars.

I commend you on the detailed description of the rifle. I wish all sellers took the time to describe their rifles as you have. Good job.

Seller and I conversed at length about this rifle, an early British made one. Has proper proof marks on the underside of the barrel, early front sight, early swivel style, early markings which varied by vintage. It is an Interarms import and has the castle marking on the barrel, not often seen.
With all the upgrades it should be a great rifle.
GLWS!
My avatar rifle is a .375 Whitworth.

I learned some things about these rifles by seeing yours. If things go well I should have another one next week and will post about it.

I hate being broke. That is a deal everyday.

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.
