Yes, there is no doubt about it. Heym rifles rate right up there as a true work of art. In another thread, a member whom I have come to respect through his posts made an off the cuff comment about when comparing Heym doubles to Merkel doubles, didn't see the value in popping the extra dough on the Heym. I have both and externally, they are both beautiful and well made. The difference can be seen when one looks deeper inside where prying eyes don't normally fall, and the Heym really shines brightly.....

The Heym is like a very fine watch internally, where the user can't see - serious high end watch collectors will know what I mean. Chambers are perfectly machined and bores are finely polished and mechanical function is as smooth as butter. Deep inside the action, there are no rough end mill machining marks, and the wood work is meticulous with no roughness internally. These are areas where only a gunsmith would get a look at upon deep disassembly, but the care in craftsmanship on the Heym goes right to the core. Is this totally necessary for a beautifully functioning and accurate rifle? Certainly not, but it is true craftsmanship of the highest order and this my dear esteemed forum members is what makes the Heym rifles more expensive and in my eye the better made rifle when compared to its contemporary competitive brands.

I will post some pics of my Heym(s) in a couple of weeks when I return home........

Mate, thanks for posting. Keep posting any that you come across. I was just admiring my Heym pin the other day, still wondering what to stick it on.

Eine Empfehlung (alle Waffen von meiner Lieblingsfirma H.) für Afrika:


1 x Leichte Repetierbüchse, mit langem 65 cm Lauf, in .300 Pegasus Magnum, für weite Schüsse in der Steppe, auf Antilopen
Mit dem günstigen Leica ZF, das meiner Meinung nach das "Beste" im Bereich "Preis-/Leistung" ist

1 x Doppelbüchse in .450/400 NE mit ZF für mittlere Distanzen auf Großkatzen, mit ZF von Swaro (Super Augenabstand)

(26 Inch Lauf), mit Wechsellauf in .500 NE (24 Inch Lauf) zur Nachsuche oder im Dickbusch, sowie mit Wechsellauf in einem Schrotkaliber (28 Zoll) der Wahl, (beide in dem Lederkoffer in der Kabine) zur Duicker-Lockjagd oder zur Vogelpirsch

1 x Schwere Repetierbüchse (hier ein besondere, die waren einem berühmten PH, der den Schaft kürzen lies, weil er "so klein war" - Kenner wissen wer gemeint war -) in 505 Gibbs mit ZF (hier ein "Prototyp" von Zeiss, der ähnlich eines jagdlichen Aimpoints ist) für Dickhäuter im Bereich 30 - 60 Meter


In dem Auto war noch (auch von H.):

1 x 577 NE Doppelbüchse, Boxlock (24 Inch) für Elefant und Hippo on dry land

1 x 460 Weatherby mit neuem Schaft aus SA, deswegen nur zu 70% von H. (27 Inch) als back up für die Hippos, mit ZF von Nickel

Trotz Rückstoßbremse ein Ungetüm, man kann es schießen, "Spaß" macht es keinen und man muss höllisch aufpassen das man bei dem ZF den richtigen Augenabstand hat (und das ist bei dem billig Ding nicht einfach)

The owner of Heym in Africa in the summer of 2016, with three Heym rifles (one double, two bolt actions).

Nice old bull taken by a Texan hunter with a Heym in 416 Rigby. One of the most impressive modern bolt guns I have had the pleasure to use. Everything about it felt "right".
