Made in consultation with Professional Hunters in Africa, the ‘PH’ version of the multi-award-winning Big Game rifle has been designed as a utilitarian, hardwearing gun for the field with a price point that is considerably lower than the standard Big Game rifle.
The ‘PH’ Big Game rifle does not feature colour hardening or flame bluing, but comes with a grade 2 wooden stock and hand chequered single panel bolt handle. It has a robust, ergonomic stock shape with higher comb for better fit and absorption of recoil, plasma nitride finish to all metal surfaces resulting in a resilient, anti-glare and rust-resistant finish, Rigby express sights dovetailed directly onto the rib with a single fixed V and 2 folding leaves zeroed at 65, 150 and 250 yards and Rigby pattern magazine floor plate. With hand engraved finishing touches, case hardened recoil bars and heat-blued extractor, this exceptional value rifle is a landmark in modern sporting firearms manufacturing.
The Single Square Bridge model is available in .416” and .450” Rigby calibres, and is designed for use with express sights only. The action is fitted with the classic three-position flag safety and choice of either a 22" stepped barrel or a 24” lightweight barrel. Overall weight, unloaded, with 22” barrel is 10lb 8oz, and 10lb with the 24” barrel. Stock length is 14 ½ ” including a red rubber recoil pad.
The Double Square Bridge model is produced in .375” H&H and .416” Rigby calibres and with a 24” lightweight barrel this rifle is ideally suited for use with a telescopic sight. The Winchester style safety is in the horizontal position to facilitate the fitting of a variety of mounting systems on the machined bridges. The weight of the rifle unloaded is 10lb and stock length 14½” including red rubber recoil pad.
