Just wondering if anyone has built a 416 Rigby on a Brno ZKK 602 action (originally 375 H&H or 416 RM). Was there any difficult/expensive gunsmithing required? Feed issues? How many in std Mag box? etc.
That was my understanding as well, though you forgot the .300 Win mag, I had one once, wish I still did. The owner above (may) have one that has a 550 barrel screwed onto it. I have never seen reference to an early one like his with the rear peep, chambered in the Rigby. Nothing is impossible I guess but it seems highly unlikely.Hi Warren,
The .416 Rigby was never a factory offering in a 602 like yours.
The chamberings in these first BRNO ZKK 602 were: .358 NORMA, .375 H&H and .458 Winchester Magnum.
Brno have always stamped the caliber on the barrel. It would be clear signs if it was altered.
Remember, Brno supplied Rigby with actions or maybe even barrelled actions. I think we have the story behind the rifle there.
Anyways, Brno had skilled workforce in this period. Easy for them to eventually make a "one off".
