Very impressive!

I'm not convinced that I can justify this, but it is very interesting.

Free bump for the "ultimate rifle".

I am a huge fan of anything Rigby, and this is indeed a very fine rifle. But if were to come into the money to buy this I would have to send it to Karnis to have that Rollover Monte Carlo Cheekpiece carved DOWN a bunch and re shaped to a more classic stylization and lines.

Anyone else notice that glaring need?

respect your opinion safari man, but I don't think I could let anyone, even an artist like Karnis touch it with rasp and sandpaper.....

Free Bump with a question....Why does the wrist look so long....It looks like a 98 but the wrist just seems too long to my eyes.

Beautiful Rifle regardless.

Why are you guys publicly knocking this guys post. Send him a PM with your concerns about it, especially if you aren't even interested in buying it.

...and why did they box it in red? That shade of red doesn't go with that high cheekpiece and long wrist.

Cool gun. You don't see these very often. I'd like to see bigger and more detailed pics, with any history on the rifle.

That seems like a low price for a Rigby of that caliber and condition.

Travis, if Spanky wasn't such a cheapskate he would buy it and then give it to either you or me. Me preferred, but he's just too cheap.
