Just in case you have all forgotten, herewith the latest on my firearm I bought last year Oct 2007.
 
The rifle arrived in South Africa Feb 2008 from the States. I applied for my lic 11 March 2008. The latest info from our Central Firearms Registry is that my application is " Final stage for approval".
I have been in contact with one of the higher ranking police officers who have moved my file along. Hopefully another week?????
 
In the meanwhile I had a gunsmith work on the stock. He removed the palm swellings (ambidextrous palm swellings on a exclusive left hand rifle????), I replaced the recoil pad, bedded the action and had it camo painted.
Unfortunately he made an absolute hash of the camo work.
I now have the stock at a proffesional spraypainter buddy of mine who is doing the below digital pattern. I will show pics when I get it back in about a week.

WOW, Wouter, what a nightmare!  I can't believe you've had to endure such an ordeal just to buy a bolt action hunting rifle!  I hope this eventually has a happy ending for you!

Yes. Hopefully, for America, Obama will move to South Africa and become the Minister of the South African Police.   Shocked

Stuff Obama, we have enough this side allready! And if he hopes to become minister of police he has to have a criminal record or links to organised crime. Otherwise he will not cut the mustard.
Ask our suspended chief of police Jacki Selebi!!
