The .416 Rigby Big Game rifle is available on a double square bridge action, and offers professional and sporting hunters a more moderately priced alternative to our London Best custom rifles.
The Double Square Bridge model is available in .375 H&H or .416 Rigby calibres. With its lightweight 24-inch barrel, this rifle is ideally suited for a telescopic sight. The horizontal Winchester-style safety catch accommodates a variety of scope-mounting systems on the machined action bridges. The weight of this rifle is 10 pounds, unloaded, and the length of pull, including the red rubber recoil pad, is 14½”.
A century and more ago, Mauser made barreled bolt-actions for us 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, we have resumed this arrangement with Mauser for our new range of Big Game rifles, making beautiful yet 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 more than 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.
