Chapuis AGEX "Jungle" Double Rifle

From the "African Express" model range, this is the intermediate grade gun with sideplates providing a larger canvas for the superb hand-cut African game scene and bold foliate scroll engraving. The caliber is 375 Flanged Magnum, providing the same ballistics as the more familiar belted round but with more reliable ejection. Belying the "Sunday Gun" good looks, this is a tough working rifle designed to withstand the heaviest of modern nitro calibers (also offered in 300 Win Mag, 375 H&H, 416 Rigby and 470 NE). Actions are machined from high-tensile steel forgings, not investment castings. Side walls are beefy and the actions are reinforced at the critical junction of breech and bar. The ribs are one piece "I beam" sections further stiffening the barrels. There are two parallel barrel lumps providing greater bearing surface and firmer lockup. The express rib and the front ramp are integral with the main barrel rib. Made to exacting tolerances in a shop combining the best of modern machine-tool technology with time-proven hand fitting and finishing, these rifles are superb value for money.
