The Safari Classics line from CZ-USA features the CZ single set trigger system set up to your specifications gloss blue finish on metal parts, #1 Fancy grade American Walnut stock with dual crossbolts and straight comb, glass bedded to the individual action, and a barrel band sling mount.
This modern rifle brings new life to the .500 Jeffery cartridge. Hand loads can push a 600gr bullet over 2400 fps exceeding even the power of a .460 Weatherby.
I recently hunted elephant in Zimbabwe and used this caliber on two elephants. One head shot through very heavy brush the missed the brain but the elephant went down anyway and another elephant at 100 yards with a heart shot that knocked the 8,000 lbs beast off his feet.
The rifle has excellent express sights with build in scope base. But I recommend caution if you intend to use a scope. Be sure you have plenty of eye relieve and hold on tight.
The rifles chambered in .500 Jeffery include a mercury recoil reducer installed in the stock as well.
