Been looking for a 275 Rigby Hawkeye African for some time. This one popped up on Gunbroker today and I couldn’t resist. I’ll post pics and report on how it shoots when it gets here.

I wasn't going to bid anyway, just watching it, nice rifle. I have a No. 1 .275 that shoots great and just as rare as the Hawkeye, maybe more so.

Regulated?o_O Its not a double rifle.;) If you mean its twist, it will handle any weight or length of bullet within reason.:D

Apologies :) When l visited John Rigby and Co. , They were telling me that their High land Stalker in .275 Rigby is " regulated " for the 140 gr bullet . So l used the word " regulated " :p . Something to do with twist and chamber throat , if l recall correctly.

That’s exactly what happened! Took one look and BAM!
Gun broker is a dangerous and powerful weapon! I was stuck in Hawaii once for about 6 months and returned home to about 8 new guns all bought off gunbroker!

I can’t use the overseas and bored excuse anymore. I’m back home for good as of August 22. In fact I had to have Gunbroker reset my account before I started to use VPN, they wouldn’t let me buy from Saudi because of the url address.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
