Heres a nice example of a M98 1920 build by William Evans. .318 Westley Richards. Had it for a while and gets a little use on game. Pretty handy calibre with great penetration from the woodleigh 250RNSP and solids.
Came with leupold 7/8 inch tube 4 power leupold. Mounted high. Hard to get a good Cheek weld but still shootable. Tip off mounts for access to the iron sights which are shooting high so needs do something with the front sight. Nice flip up moonlight bead, at the front sight.
Easy to load for with trimmed 30-06 cases necked to .330, 2209 and a 250 RNSP.
Handles like a English sporting rifle should....................
Heres few pics cheers Mick

Mick you must be very happy to have such a fine rifle, if only it could talk the see Tories it could tell.

Very nice! Would it be sacrilege to get some lower scope mounts put on?

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.
