    For doubles for me, it is only pre war doubles from the UK.
    If I was to venture to a new production double, VC would win hands down as the best value combination of quality and price and reliability. I've shot them all--VC is top choice.

    they are in business. the name is owned by tom friedkin who has TGT safaris amongst other things. cant remember the name of the person who he has licensed to build them these days , but i have seen their stuff at sci and very nice. only thing is some of the photos he uses on the display are of my 9.4x74r double jeffery, but it was built by paul when he was using the name after he sorted the purchase of the jeffery name for tom friedkin. i mentioned it to the guy when i was on the stand and said you owe me some advertising money....but just got a funny look....:D

    I have just returned from France. I visited VC again. There is just something about those VC's that the German doubles don't have. My opinion off course.

    The new Sabatti's imported by IFG and sold by Wholesale Hunter are the best value double you can fine. I own 3 of them in .500 NE, 450/400 NE and 9.3X74R all regulate invincible well. I was hunting with Craig Boddington in Mozambique where I used my 450/400 3" NE to take a buffalo at 70 yards with one shot. Later in the hunt Craig asked me if he could borrow the rifle to shoot his 100th buffalo which he did. If Craig chose a Sabatti to shoot his historic 100th buffalo, that says a lot about his confidence in the gun. I use my 9.3X74R for deer hunting out to 200 yards with a scope. The gun is light and short making it easy to handle in a deer blind.
