I liked the Merkel the best. It is thinner through the stock wrist and seemed to fit me better. Both the Chapuis and Merkel would work for me and I’d probably never have any issue with either.
I will say that there are several members who have the Merkel as well as Chapuis. I’ve personally...
Yes it does reduce felt recoil. I’m uncertain as to the degree of reduction. It’s certainly not like a muzzle brake where everyone around is deafened or stunned by the blast. We have rifles with brakes and there is a significant difference in a Magnaported and muzzle brake.
For sale is my Ruger RSM 416 Rigby. The rifle is near mint minus two safe dings. Rifle has a Pachmayr recoil pad and has been magnaported (previous owner). Feeds and functions well, never jammed or failed an extraction. $3200 obo plus shipping.
I’m unloading all of my 416 Rigby ammo and components. I would prefer to sell as a package however, individual prices are listed below.
Lyman 416 dies $30
Lee factory crimp die brand new, never used $50
45 Woodleigh solids 410 grain $45
+- 40 Barnes banded solids $40
Most of you know about my previous 404 saga and the outcome of that. After selling the rifle, I sold ll of my 404 ammo and components. I now have AHR building a new rifle for me and would like to acquire a couple boxes of ammo as well as few pieces of brass to get things going.
If you can spare...
I have zero idea what this guns value is but it looks nice, has a greener cross bolt. Maybe @rookhawk could weigh in.
