The newer american owners of John Rigby and Co have sold the company to Blaser , who also own Mauser and JP Sauer. they are moving the Rigby operation back to london with a workshop and showroom. Blaser is also constructing a new factory for Mauser, and will be manufacturing the Mauser 98 action and will supply Rigbys with barreled actions, so it has gone full circle from when Rigbys were the original uk agents for mauser. Marc Newton who used to work for Paul Roberts has moved to Rigbys, and has been appointed director and will be running the operation. they have acquired the historical company records as well as company memorabilia from the last two centuries . so should be worth a visit when they are up and running.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
