    $11,500 (cash or check) and doesn't include shipping. Wonder if it comes in a cardboard box.

    Beautiful piece of wood on that gun.

    Is the scout mounted scope there so that if it shears off from recoil you have a better shot at dodging it before it cuts your forehead? Don :supergrin:

    First on the left is the .50 S&W then the Winchester .45-70 followed by the .700 Nitro Express, and finally the super massive 2 bore.

    Yeah, I've seen pics of the 2 bore before. Black powder or not, that thing is nuts.

    I like how it had the scout scope setup. Yah, like I'd be interested carrying that over a mountain or two.

    I think I remember reading about a 1 bore magnum somebody was custom building in Europe. You know, in case the 2 bore isn't big enough.
    It would be like loading a coke can in there.

    If my 416 isn't big enough, I'm shooting at a tank, and thus using a rocket.

    Gorgeous rifle.

    Yes, it's big, but if I had a wounded cape buffalo bearing down on me, I'd want something that big.

    And for that kind of money, that quarter rib better be integral.

    Cool that it's built on a CZ 550 action, always liked CZ rifles.
