Hailed as a traditional deerstalking rifle, the new Highland Stalker is inspired by the same smaller calibre rifles Rigby produced at the turn of the 20th century that were used by iconic British adventurers such as Karamojo Bell and Jim Corbett. Rigby regards the Scottish Highlands as the birthplace of stalking and the title befitting the rifle.
Available in both men’s and ladies’ versions, the rifle took three years to develop with Rigby’s historic partner Mauser and features grade five wood as standard, traditional Rigby pattern iron sights regulated for 65, 150 and 250 yards, an ambidextrous stock, rounded grip shape, hand-finished chequering and original-style engraving. Weighing 7.8lb with a barrel length of 22”, the rifle’s magazine holds either 5+1 or 4+1 depending on calibre. Of course, numerous upgrades are available to any specification.
Available in .275, .308, .30-06, 8x57, 9.3x62
