Safari Big Five Express rifle




Express Rifle




Double Trigger


Side by Side, rifled


Straight, pistol grip

Sabatti Safari Big Five big game hunting double rifle of absolutely traditional style.

The design, the profile, the dimensions are those of all “Express” rifles – side-by-side double rifles – built for big game hunting, specifically for the African Big Five: elephant, cape buffalo, rhino, lion, and leopard.

The Safari Big Five double rifle is built on a boxlock-type Anson Deeley design completely engineered by Sabatti, featuring finely engraved side plates, and specifically designed to withstand perfectly ever the most powerful loads.

The use of high-quality special steel, the cold-hammer forged barrels and their rigorous hand coupling and convergence, all match to guarantee the sturdiness, accuracy and reliability that all Sabatti firearms are known for.

At the same time, the quality of the finish on all metal surfaces, of the selected walnut stock, the cheekpiece, the hand-checkered handguard and grip, and the oil treatment of all the wooden components contribute to turn this double rifle into an extremely elegant item.

The Sabatti Big Five EDL Express rifle is available with a double trigger and manual extractors; a single trigger system and automatic extractors are available upon request.
