View Full Version : Searcy/Krieghoff/Heym near Wash DC?

I am down to wanting either a Searcy PH or Krieghoff Big Five. Any Se or Kr double owners near DC? I'm planning a trip to PA to Krieghoff Int'l. to check out the guns coming back from SCI. I'd like to view a Searcy as well, if there is anyone nearby DC who would be willing.

Also, looking for approximate prices for Heyms (new), specifically the 88B/Safari. The pics on the Heym website appear to show a lot more drop of comb than, say, the Krieghoff. Thanks.

Congrats to your choice. The Safari is probably one of the best rifles (much) money can buy. I visited the Heym factory some years ago and was impressed by the craftsmanship of their gunsmiths. Please don't humiliate the Safari with a cheapo scope. IMO it would be best to get the rifle+scope+mount in Europe and the VAT refunded. Saves you 20%.
