The latest edition to the John Rigby & Co. line-up, Rigby proudly introduces the Big Game Lightweight rifle to its renowned Big Game series. The lightweight model pays homage to the classic pre-war safari expedition rifles, being based on those models housed in the Rigby Museum.

This beautiful example features and upgraded Grade 6 Turkish Walnut stock which brings the rifle to life. 

Chambered in .350 Rigby Magnum, a beloved classic calibre known for its stopping power and mild recoil, it is the ideal choice for hunting African plains game or North American big game. Built on a Mauser M98 magnum double square bridge action, the rifle features a three-position side safety and has capacity for holding five cartridges in the magazine box, plus one in the chamber.

The new slim profile 24-inch barrel is engraved with the maker's name, 'J. Rigby & Co. London England,' in old English font, and is fitted with a barrel band with swivels for sling attachment. Express island style sights are fitted to the rifle, featuring a ramp front sight with an elevation-adjustable yellow bead and a rear sight with one fixed blade for 65 yards, plus two folding blades for 150 and 250 yards, complete with windage adjustments.

The stock profile has been reproduced to mirror the vintage pre-war models, with no cheek piece and larger hand-chequered panels, offering a timeless aesthetic. With a stock length of 14 and a half-inches, it is beautifully oil-finished and fitted with a classic style red rubber recoil pad. Weighing in at just 4.26kg, it weighs 430grams less than the Rigby Big Game. 

The rifle's finishing touches include a colour case hardened recoil bar and grip cap, while the new flat, slimmed profile magazine floorplate is engraved with the Rigby ‘double R’ logo.
