    I have a 375 RUM for sale. This gun was built for an African safari where it was used by my dad to kill a Lion, a Leopard, a Cape Buff, and a host of plains game. It proved to be very deadly. However, now that the safari is over, the gun is not getting used, so he wants to sell it. The gun was built by Kirby Allen of Allen Precision Shooting.

    The specs are listed below.

    375 RUM
    -Lawton 7000 receiver
    -Holland Comp recoil lug
    -Gret Tan striker assembly
    -Lilja #7 fluted barrel 26"
    -HS Precision Detachable magazine system
    -Defensive Edge Muzzle Brake
    -McMilland BDL stock, pillar bedded -- 80% medium tan, 10%black, 10% medium brown
    -Lawton base
    -All metal teflon coated Black
    -Rifles Basix trigger set at 3 lbs

    This rifle is the perfect match for accuracy and smooth feeding. It has 120 rounds through it.

    I will take $2600 for the rifle shipped. I have pics that I can e-mail if interested. I don't know how to post them. E-mail is jedlowe1@yahoo.com

    PRICE HAS BEEN REDUCED TO $2400.

    Pics sent. This gun has very impressive knock down power. I only shot the 300 gr. A-Square bullets which are a rounded tip and not known to be the most accurate bullets out there. It still put them in a 1" group at 100 yards. It should do a lot better with ballistically better bullets. With new bullets coming out for the 375, I imagine it could give this beauty some long range potential.

    ss7mm,

    Thanks for offering to post the pics. I tried to find your e-mail address on your profile but couldn't find it. I am probably looking in the wrong spot. Would you mind PM'ing me your e-mail address.

    Thanks,
    Jed

    My scale shows the rifle weighing in at right around 9 lbs.

    A lot of interest has been generated, but no takers. This is an APS work of art. Someone who needs a real hammer should jump on this.
