Bruce,
I’m a M70 fan but I would trade any of my custom M70’s for that Rigby. I guess I’m just a sentimental fool. And as to new rifles of that ilk, I am a huge fan of the Rigby Highland stalker and have no plans to ever part with ours.

Yeah but the 9.3x62 needs a baby brother in 275.....

Spike was right on in his comments about a lot of the 275s being built for ladies of the day. I can’t believe the super fast reply I got from Rigby’s—here follows the ledger records they provided:


We have now examined our ledgers for 5434 and find the following :-

Rigby Rifle No. 5434.

Action Number 66919

Entered in Ledger 26th November 1929

A .275 “ Mauser Sptg H.V.”

Sold to Mrs. W.M. Hammay for Miss P.H.Hodge

Weight 7 ¼ lbs.

Barrel 24”

Stock Length 14 ¼”

Sighting – “ Ivory bead std & 2lvs 1.3.400 No.2v”

Oval PHH Nov 1929

We hope this information is of interest to you.

Yours sincerely

Interesting how LOP is 14.25 and it was created for a lady. Nowadays it seems standard on many is 13.5 which is way too short for me. Beautiful rifle. Cheers

I wonder what adventures it's played a part in over the past 92 years?

My 275 Rigby I traded in was regulated for 175grn...140grn the usual weight shot high when I tried them...didnt get chance to use it apart from once at the range having a play with my rifles he had in storage for me... as was stored at Paul's...my bell replica I told him to sight with 175grn....

I wonder if they would on request?

If you look under their “London Best” it shows a picture of a rifle mounted with one. But it doesn’t show in the Highland Stalker configurations. Although, like most desires in life, money talks.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
