Welcome!!! :)
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 !

You will find we are not so bad as Mike says ;)

Welcome to AH

I am sure that there will be more members along to ask some questions.
Welcome to AH. I just received my DSB Big Game last week. Having the scope put on, and will take it out for a test drive as soon as the snow clears. I'll let you know what I think!
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.
Cheers and welcome to AH!
Hello David and welcome to AH!

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
in-between all the bush fire, hunting and work on the hunting area its hard to find time for fishing as well
