A removable joint pin is also fitted to help re-jointing and is available in different sizes so that any future tightening can be done with ease anywhere in the world.

  The action has a head design suitable to fit side plates should they be desired, either with or without a detachable pin.

  The large trigger plate conceals two simple firing mechanisms powered by unbreakable coil springs for safety, internal safes include hammer block and rebounding hammers, trigger pulls are set on the high side for safety.

  Barrels are chrome molly and target quality fitted to a mono-block system, this means that any tubes may be fitted. Normal caliber is .470 NE but 375 H&H, 416 Rigby etc. are no problem. They may even be fitted with a shotgun barrels in 20 or 16 bore should this option be desired. They are zeroed in at 60 yards, barrels are normally 24 inches long.

Epitome

 

                                                                          There was a little man and he had a little gun,

                                                                                  He killed his sitters very dead, dead, dead,

                                                                                            But he stopped in his swing when the birds were on the wing

                                                                                                             So he never hit the damn things in the head, head, head
