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.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
