I have 2 African safaris back to back this year, one in S.Africa again for plains and Cape buffalo, and another in the Selous in Tanzania for 2 more Dugga boy Cape Buffs, Hippo, Croc. I have a .416 custom bolt gun but need a double rifle for the arsenal..well I don't need, but I want!!;)

I am looking for a used Heym Double Rifle chambered in any of these calibers .450/400, .450 NE, .470NE or .500NE. I have a 5 digit budget$$ for the right gun. I prefer the .450/400NE or the .470NE Let me know if you have something or no someone who has one they want to part with.

I have a Heym 88B PH 450/400, 26" Barrels, Upgraded "Safari" wood, ivory front bead
standard dimensions. As new-unfired (other than factory regulation). I bought this several years ago for a safari and ended up using another rifle. PM me if you are interested in making an offer. Asking $12,500.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

A high level of quality both in production and in service. Read More

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
