This is an outstanding piece and reportedly the last Rigby bolt rifle made in London prior to their move to California and their current London reincarnation. I like California girls but I prefer my Rigby's to come from London. This gun remains in near new condition with light stock marks from hunting use. Rigby is absolutely one of the most prestigious gunmaking firms of all time.
