That's a cool sling! Who is the maker?
That is a copy of a standard John Rigby Sling. It just doesn't have the stamped Rigby name on each end.

Beautiful rifle, excellent condition!
Have put 30-40 rounds through it since the pics were made. Lots of fun to shoot....steel plates at 200 and 300 yds for me. My son can reach out there to 500 on a good day! Never been hunted though and no scope ever mounted.

If I could handle a 416 Rigby, I’d get this. Unfortunately I didn’t do well with the ones I have tried including an RSM. Just too wimpy I guess:(.
These are very nice guns!
Sierraone has a beautiful rifle for sale. I was just curious as to the recoil of the Rigby, having never shot one. My CZ .458 WM’s recoil isn’t bad at all to ME, but I’ve read here on AH that the Rigby’s recoil is very sharp? Thanks!

I find a 416 rigby easier to shoot than a 458WM... a lot depends on the rifle though (weight, stock design, recoil pad, etc.)

Chuck Hawks recoil table shows both recoil energy and recoil velocity to be lower in the Rigby..

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
