The Making Of A Masterpiece Rigby Rifle


In 2015, Rigby built a rifle the SCI World Heritage Rifle honoring hunting in Asia that its Managing Director, Marc Newton, called “the best .275 bolt rifle Rigby has ever made.”  The gun realized $250,000 at auction during the 2016 Safari Club International convention and the funds will be used to support conservation efforts and hunting as a scientifically proven method of responsible wildlife management.  The rifle, styled after a similar rifle owned by famed hunter Jim Corbett, commemorates Corbett’s ending the carnage of mankillers throughout Asia. This video shows just some of the attention to detail that went into making this exceptional rifle.
