The fellows at Rigby asked if I would mind sending them a report of my .275's maiden hunt here in Texas. It has been posted on their site, and I thought some of you might get a kick out of it. https://www.johnrigbyandco.com/texashillcountry/

As some of you may remember, I posted a brief review here last summer about the lovely little thing.

That is a nice or should I say classic looking rifle. Whether it is called a 275 Rigby or a 7 x 57 that caliber has earned its' stripes in the hunting fields of the world. This post cleared up a mystery for me, I wondered why Von Gruff called one of his newer offerings The JT Ranger. Now we know.

Great article and beautiful rifle. I guess many of us here are dreaming of such a rifle, so please keep the stories pertaining to this rifle coming.

That little rifle is going gain the exceptional desirability of the original as it becomes more widely distributed. A very worthwhile reintroduction.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
