Went with @Kevin Peacocke to Andrew Tonkin today....well I can just say the meeting was brief but the Heym 89B is a masterpiece of practical and efficient design....problem is when you pick it up you don't want to put it down....absolutely the best doubles available here.

Now to get organized and get the tom sorted out....
3 barrel set is my dream
500NE
375 Flanged Magnum
20ga or 12ga

Andrew will see if they can supply a 12ga on the Gross action otherwise it will be a 20ga on an African action....
I might add my eyes kept going back to the 135lb(I am sure that's what he said), 20 and a half inch lip set of elephant tusks.....
Our meeting was a bit short but Andrew had a personal problem to attend to.

Forget about selling Heym doubles, Andrew could charge people to just come and fondle those things.

Although the action is wider, the firing pin centers aren't far enough apart for the 12ga.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
