Lol!!! I did! Bought the Rigby in 275 Rigby then the Mauser in 375 H&HHa, yessir! Actually I did that… 8mm M98 and .275 Rigby.
Both are great guns. Forced to choose just one… I’d pick the Rigby. The refinements in the stock finish and traditional shape are wonderful.
They are both owned by L&O Holding GmbH and yes the rifles are made in the same plant with finishing done at Rigby in London. They also own Blaser, JP Sauer & Sohn and SIG.I believe Mauser makes the barreled actions for Rigby…and maybe machine inlets the stocks with Rigby doing final finish.
So, they are very similar.
Brno 602s also they used for a while.They are both owned by L&O Holding GmbH and yes the rifles are made in the same plant with finishing done at Rigby in London. They also own Blaser, JP Sauer & Sohn and SIG.
Also, Rigby has a long tradition of using actions from another manufacturer for their rifles. I know they were using CZ550 actions on their rifels, including the London Best for quite a while. Of course they were hand worked by the shop in London, but the raw action was the same as a CZ.
The current production Rigby rifles have it as well.I dont understand why a new production Mauser would have stripper clip notches...a mounted scope would render them unusable. Perhaps Mauser is just using the same machine set up for hunting rifles as they may for a historic version?
