John Rigby & Co. Big Game Professional Hunter .375 H&H
A century and more ago, Mauser made barreled bolt-actions for Rigby and shipped them to London, where they were assembled, finished and proofed by Rigby craftsmen. Today, in an echo of halcyon days before the Great War, they have resumed this arrangement with Mauser for Rigby & Co’ new range of Big Game rifles, making aspirational but affordable rifles for use around the world.
In its plant in Isny, Mauser is again building its much-copied but never bettered original Magnum bolt action, which it originally created in 1899 specifically for John Rigby. Today, just as was done a century ago, barrelled actions are supplied by Mauser, then assembled into superb hand-finished rifles by master craftsmen at the Rigby workshop in London. Like the originals, these rifles carry London proof marks. Many aspects of the original rifle, including the much admired and copied extractor and the three-position flag safety, have been retained.
These outstanding rifles have classic Rigby design features, plus a robust, ergonomic stock shape with a higher comb for better fit and absorption of recoil. They also feature plasma nitriding on all exposed metal surfaces for a tough but attractive anti-glare and rust-resistant finish. The Rigby express sights have a single fixed V and two folding leaves (sighted for 65, 150 and 250 yards) dovetailed into the quarter-rib. With original pattern engraving, case-hardened recoil bars and a heat-blued extractor, these rifles represent exceptional value and are a benchmark in modern sporting firearms manufacturing.
