Built to specifications taken from pre-1940s models in the firm’s London museum, the ‘Vintage’ edition of the multi-award-winning Big Game rifle has been designed to capture the spirit and style of the renowned Rigbys of the past.
The Vintage edition is available as a Single Square Bridge model in .416” Rigby, and is designed for use with traditional express sights only. The action is fitted with the classic three-position flag safety and a 24" lightweight barrel. The overall weight, unloaded, is 10lb, and stock length is 14½” including a red rubber recoil pad.
The Vintage edition Big Game rifle features a historic stock shape taken from pre-1940s models in Rigby’s museum, with no cheek piece and features traditional pattern hand chequering. The stock is made from specially selected grade 5 Turkish walnut and given a Rigby oil finish. The recoil bar and grip cap are colour case hardened.
As with the other Big Game models, the Vintage Edition has Rigby express sights dovetailed directly onto the rib, with a single fixed V and two folding leaves regulated at 65, 150 and 250 yards, and a Rigby pattern magazine floor plate that allows it to hold four rounds in the magazine and another in the chamber. With its high quality classic features, this rifle harnesses the spirit of Rigby’s past.
