Rigby Offers Sneak Peek at 2016 World Heritage Rifle


World-Heritage-Rifle-Rigby-stock-grainThe World Heritage Rifle for the 2016 SCI Convention is a Corbett-style .275 Rigby honoring hunting in Asia. Rigby’s Managing Director, Marc Newton, was kind enough to give us a sneak peek at how the project is progressing. We knew from the blank that the wood Rigby selected was going to be the best, but now that we can really see the figure we can appreciate how exquisite the wood is, and the care in its selection.

The World Heritage Rifle Series began last year when John Bolliger Sr. and Jr. created the Africa rifle that brought $140,000 at auction during the 2015 SCI Convention.
