HEYM MAGNUM MAUSER EXPRESS BY MARTINI DANGEROUS GAME RIFLE WITH SWAROVSKI Z8i SCOPE.
Cal. 416 Rigby
This well thought out dangerous game rifle is built by Heym in conjunction with Ralf Martini with a 24″ roto-forged medium weight barrel fitted with sleeved on base for one standing, one folding leaf express sight; sling loop and front sight ramp which holds gold bead. Top of barrel is marked “HEYM Express by Martini”. Magnum length Mauser inspired action has many improvements over the old 98 with integral scope mounts, solid side wall, .785 diameter bolt, gas vent on right side, model 70 type safety and improved trigger. Action is marked “Heym” (trademark) and “GERMANY” on left sidewall. Drop box bottom metal has classic release button in trigger guard bow for hinged floorplate. Bolt handle has low profile and is longer than the 98 but retains classic pear shaped knob. These rifles are custom stocked by the noted Ralf Martini. This rifle features a capped pistol grip stock made of an exceptional piece of wildly figured and brown marbled Turkish walnut and measures 14-1/2″ over a red solid Universal pad. Stock is classically styled with shadow line right hand cheekpiece, point pattern checkering, recoil bolt and ebony forend tip. These rifles presently retail with a base price of $13,000. Rifle is fitted with Swarovski Z8i 1-8X24 30mm scope with lighted reticle in Tally QD rings. This truly exceptional dangerous game scope retails at over $3,000.
