Thanks for the comments. I’m fortunate to be the custodian of this fine rifle. I lucked into it a couple of years ago when I was visiting George Caswell at Champlin’s. He had just gotten it in but hadn’t listed it yet and I made a deal for it.
I have some of the history he provided but can’t put my finger on it at the moment. I’m pretty sure this came out of a long time collection in Montana. Believe the guy had designed a bunch of PGA golf courses and heirs were selling off his large collection after he died. I am not sure about this rifle but as happened with a lot of these sporting rifles, the original owners were killed in the wars and their families held onto the rifles for a couple of generations. Many probably didn’t see the light of day for decades
I haven’t had time to shoot this one yet but will. The bore is absolutely as new and the Rigby diopter sight is fantastic and so precisely machined and positive in use.
