WRT Zastava rifles;
An oufitter friend bought a Zastava in 375 mag and used it for bullet testing and for loaning to Africa bound clients and one of them liked it so much that he bought the rifle after using it to shoot his Cape buff.
I know both guys and the buyer does like his Zastava rifle and he offered it to me for a trip, but I already have a .405 and .458 and chose to use mine.
Conclusion ? Zastava sounds OK from here on the sidelines and the price seems unbeatable.
PS, If you pass through Dallas, I ma be able to arrange for you to shoot the Z.458.
Well it's a conundrum. Sometimes we like to bring up something from an old thread that we found in a search. If there were locked archives, this would not happen and would instead appear as a new thread catching an equal amount of hell in the different form of "we've already covered this..."
I say hooray for using the search function and who can blame him...he believes a lever action can kill an elephant...
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.
also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
