    Hard to see in the picture. Looks like it could be a 416 rigby. That rifle looks like it has seen better days.

    The cartidges look like .375 H&H to me. Not the best choice for elephant, but would work. Poachers aren't picky... they often use Mosins and Enfields and 8mm Mausers.

    The rifle--- I donno. The way the trigger guard detaches from the rest of the action indicates that it's not a German Mauser design or the Winchester model 70 variant of that design.
