    I did this , but I just went and got a Kreiger barrel, and had a good gunsmith machine and attach , match, the quarter rib & sights.

    That is a copy of a standard John Rigby Sling. It just doesn't have the stamped Rigby name on each end.

    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.

    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..
