Introducing the Rigby Mopani .450 Rigby Bolt Action Rifle. This is a limited edition rifle released by Rigby in a series of 12 rifles. This is 3/12 of the series. Designed to celebrate Africa, it is aptly named after one of the continent’s most distinctive and well-known trees, the mopani.
In dedication, a mopani leaf is inlaid in gold on the bolt handle and engraved onto the recoil bar, plus “The Mopani Rifle” and series number is inlaid in gold into each magazine floor plate. Adding to its aesthetics, Rigby engraver Geoffrey Lignon, who’s passionate about African animals, has attractively engraved an elephant on the floor plate.
Manufactured in .450 Rigby, the 12 rifles are built around the standard length Mauser 98 single square bridge action. Each featuring a 22-inch barrel with a special plasma nitride finish, a front foresight with a removable protector hood and a fixed rear sight regulated at 65 yards, with two folding leaf sights regulated at 150 and 250 yards.
These stunning rifles have hand-selected deluxe grade walnut stocks with Rigby oil finish. They come complete in a limited edition canvas case, with faux elephant leather trim and cleaning accessories.
