Handled one of your .416s at Lance Hendershot's. What a wonderful rifle! I am hoping he gets one of the 7mm's (excuse me :) .275's) in the near future. I covet one of those. Wishing you every kind of success.

Welcome to the site! I met Marc at DSC last January along with another gentleman of which I can't recall the name. I have wanted a Rigby rifle for 20 plus years, but never as much as after talking to these two professionals about the company and single and double square bridge Mauser actions. Your re-creation of the Big Game a couple of years ago made ownership of a Rigby closer to reality for many of us. I hope you learn as much from some of the great hunters and shooters on this forum as we learn from you!

Welcome to AH David.

Mike Taylor hooked me up with Marc last summer and he gave me a tour of your new digs. Really enjoyed it. Not sure if you were there and if we met or not.

If anyone is traveling through London, it is well worth the visit. They will even give you a choice of coffee if your not big on tea.

Watching the USD/Euro exchange rate, sure makes me wish you guys had gone Euro.:D

All the best.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
