Progress double rifles have been designed and are manufactured to exacting standards to accommodate the most powerful modern cartridges one needs to use in Africa. Many prominent trophy hunters have adopted these highly reliable rifles, which are fast becoming the world’s best-selling gun in this category after having met with enormous success in America. Year after year, a growing number of Professional Hunters and Safari Guides who operate in some of the best hunting territories of the Black Continent purchase Chapuis Armes Progress rifles as their « charge stopping rifle ». Wild temperature or humidity changes or the omnipresent dust have no effect on Progress Dangerous Game Rifle performance. The rifles simply remain reliable in all conditions, at all times, exhibiting a remarkable ruggedness. The actions of these double rifles are machined from specially forged hightensile steel ingots. Compared to their more mundane standard-caliber European cousins, the Progress dangerous game action sports very heavy walls, futher reinforced by solid integral side ribs. Our Progress action will withstand the highest pressures that can result from a long exposure of cartridges to tropical sun and heat. The demi-bloc barrels are soldered to a unique, fully machined monobloc carrying the familiar Chapuis Armes double parallel lumps. A full-length solid jointing rib makes the barrels extraordinarily stable shot after shot. An elevated quarter-rib sighting plane is machined integral with the jointing rib and receives a classic folding-leaves rear sight, while the front sight pedestal is also an integral part of the rib. A typical Chapuis Armes Dangerous Game Rifle will put two bullets within one and a half inch of each other at 50 meters, which is quite unusual in this class of firearm.
