Being a magnificent side-by-side rifle for big game hunting, the Maxim Express is made by an enthusiast for enthusiasts. The extremely accurate chopper lump barrels are made of Böhler Rasant steel with a length of 24 inches.
The barrels carry a full length hand filed rib with a fixed sight regulated for 50 meters and folding sights for 75, 100 and 125 meters. On demand we can also install a quick detachable optical sight adjusted to the customers wishes. The range of calibers for the Maxim are 375 H&H Magnum, 458 Winchester Magnum, 458 Lott and perhaps the best for dangerous game, the 470 Nitro Express.
Calibers of such large size demand the up most in strength so we use the triple bite Purdey locking system with locking bolt under lugs and completethe ensemble with a Greener top lock.
The entire action is made of hot forged hardened steel and finished by hand. The Maxim is only available with articulated double triggers so to protect the second finger on the shooters hand as he fires the second barrel. The pistol grip stock with cheekpiece and non-slip butt pad are made of only the finest walnut chosen for both its good looks and superior strength.
We use a beaver tail forend and checker both to perfection and finish with an oil or gloss finish. A 24 karat gold shield is inlayed in the stock for the owner initials. Acclaimed as one of the finest double rifles available the Maxim is renowned for itsperfect balance and pointability. Add to this the many custom options available and it is easy to understand why. Options like handgame scene engravings by master engravers and you have a one of a kind masterpiece like the one pictured on these pages. This gun, engraved by Angelo Galeazzi with gold inalys, was produced for Safari Club International at their convention in Reno - Nevada
