Really beautiful - there is nothing more elegant than a prince of Wales grip IMO.

Beautiful rifle. Odd bit of trivia: certain municipalities restrict us to. 275 cal or less. When I checked with the authorities I was advised that the 275 Rigby is legal but the 7x57 is not. So, beautiful rifle and legal everywhere in Ontario.(y)

Unfortunately this happens more often than we would think. People making rules, policies and even laws about things they know little or nothing about.

Rifle is done!
Quite impressive. Most of the old craftsmen may be gone, but their craft lives on.

I managed to latch onto on of the Ruger M77 Africans in 6.5X55. One of the classiest features of this rifle and the Rigbys is the tapered barrel. Always knew what I wanted but couldn't put it into words. Here is a picture of it. Yeah, mighty impressive.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
