    New from Wales, United Kingdom

    It’s a stunning place. Went to uni at Bangor and then hunted a lot near Beddgelert a decade or so ago. Moved to New Zealand’s South Island and that’s even more impressive scenery.

    Trophy Shiping Costs, Turkiye ( Turkey ) to USA

    He’s really helpful. Tried really hard when MPI impounded my axis cape in March. I’ll give him a bell and see what he thinks. If it’s got to be sea freighted from Aussie that’s not too bad. Banteng should be superb friends who’ve hunted them a lot tell me it’s a great hunt. I did water buff...

    416 Rigby take-down

    Exactly Yes I had Charles Lancaster build me a 375 and it’s an absolutely stunning rifle. In my opinion well surpasses the quality of the Rigbys of modern times.

    What do you think of the new Rigby Shikari?

    With the volume, they have allegedly taken, orders for I’d be surprised if there was enough talent in the uk gun trade to be able to produce them in the quoted timescales…

    Most Iconic Animal of Oceania?

    Tough question. I’ve hunted a lot of them on that list - I’ll be missing three or four of them by the end of this year. I lived for foot hunting of tahr and I’d place that as the most iconic - but of course you can hunt them elsewhere in the world. Most enjoyable was probably last years water...

    Any Aussies had a 425 WR built?

    I’ve got the same thoughts. Even harder to get stuff in NZ. Do I go an easier route and get a 404j or do I go for the 425…

    Would you recommend one over a 404j ? Thinking about another buff rifle when my 470 has been completed and I can’t choose between a 404j and a 425. Thank you

    Westley Richards Retail Customer Service (UK)

    Just had similar excellent service with them. Their courier company managed to not believe my address was real and sat on a parcel for quite some time. WR were excellent at following up and getting it delivered.

    What do you think of the new Rigby Shikari?

    If they took 78 orders at last years show's and i'm assuming a lot at this years (so far) when they had the prototype then I'm guessint that the wait time must be bumping out quite a lot... There just aren't that many working in the UK who can produce a quality double are there? Did anyone who...

    Charles Lancaster 375

    Around 18 months ago now I was looking to buy a ‘lifetime’ .375. Intention was to get something that I and then my children would enjoy. I’d been looking at Heym and Rigby.
