You stated it has seen no use, is the factory red colored grease cleaned off? Do you have the box and paperwork? Authenticity letter?

Oh I know what the rifle is, no question there. They are beautiful guns and I know them fairly well. However part of the value is having the original box and paperwork, how much of the value I am not sure, I suppose it depends upon an individuals opinion.

Good luck selling it.

It was a .470 Capstick in the Rhino not a Nitro Express. There was a full set not to long ago on GI for 15k I believe. I thought that was a fine buy.
Beautiful rifle. Why can't you take it to Iceland?

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there
