I don't believe Ralf Martini would engage in pranks via his website.

Dang, that is nice enough to make me reach for my checkbook . . . . almost.

I'll swap a roll of toilet paper, 100 rounds of 9mm, and a small bottle of hand sanitizer for it. I can also offer a container of Clorox bleach wipes if they're good on hand sanitizer.

Just got off the phone with Ralf. Rifle sold yesterday to a gentleman from Ontario.

I'm second in line if the sale falls through.

If I had the money, I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

I'm not optimistic at that price.

That was a great price on a great rifle. It also shows how soft the market has become.
Last fall my son found an original 1903 vintage Rigby 7x57 ( they were called the 275 until later) at a local gun show for $3500.

Anyone who claims the 30-06 is not effective has either not used one, or else is unwittingly commenting on their marksmanship.

Absolutely gorgeous rifle! Someone got a smoking deal at $4500. Wish it was me, but hey, one can dream.

I owned Rigby .275 for nearly 20 years and it was a terrific rifle and very accurate, never needed re-sighting with different bullets over the years but My current Model 70 Super Grade is a more accurate rifle even though that accuracy differential is inconsequential under field use. Also had a double made in 1912 that put 6 shots (3 from each) into 1 5/8" at 50 yards which was unbelievably balances and a joy to carry if not overly practical for the hunting I was doing. A Rigby is something special.
