    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.

    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.
