Yep my 416 is a M77 guide gun in 416 Ruger. The model one was made in a 416 Rigby at one point. A friend here on AH just bought one of those from another member!

I remember when it (M77) was available in Rigby and a friend had one and I think his son has it now. M77 is a pretty rifle but I'm partial to M70 and I think they do have it in Remington's 416 which I have no interest in.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
