Rigby Highland Stalker .275 vs 30-06

If they made the Rigby in left handed, I would figure out a way to own one in 275 Rigby.
 
Showed up today.

Dude that is awesome! Nice sling as well. Instead of knotting the leather thong, I lashed mine with wax coated cord. It works better and looks awesome.
 
I’m sure you know this, but the studs will only work with a thonged sling. They will not work properly with sling swivels.

I appreciate it! Do you happen to have a pic of your sling? I am messing around with it a bit tonight. The rifle is definitely a lot slimmer and lighter than I thought it would be. Very well balanced.

Mine works perfectly with sling swivels. :unsure:

‘fish hook swivels would be the original method as well and will work. Now that Mauser owns rigby it could be they went to EU sling eyes. (Smaller than uncle Mike’s, $40 at NECG)

Exactly

I will send you a pic.

Interesting. The stud hole on mine is far too large for normal sling swivels. It is definitely set up for the Rigby silent sling.
 

Actually the holes on mine are much larger than standard studs. Would this match the fish hook swivels you mention? I’m not familiar with them.
 
Though a classic Winchester version, this is what they look like. I am not a fan.


My rifle with a Trader Keith Sling and swivels - not sure the actual brand.
Hill Country Ten Point and Rigby .275

Google Winchester or Parker hale fish hook swivels. Expect to pay $80-$150 a pair. It’s 100% what that was intended to use. I use English swivel eyes on restorations for fish hook use.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
