Mr Prechtl has stated as recently as three weeks ago that he has NO involvement with the current Rigby firm. All actions for these rifles are made by the current Mauser Group. He has also stated that he has never made an action for a .350 Rigby

Mauser does not manufacture their actions.Prechlt actions are made by GOLmatic. Mauser used the Prechlt-GOLmatic action as well until they recently switched to FZH.

Since this is a 98 clone I believe that standard bolt sleeve and wing safety can be adapted to fit with small modification to bolt.I have seen this. How a proper 98 should look in a vintage rifle.

Rigby has supplied me with a whole bunch of photos of their London gunroom workshop, which I still have to download and post. In answer to the quite silly comments on a thread saying something like "do they even make anything" or other words to that effect.

I have to say they were quite incredulous of the idea they are not making their London Best models in their own workshop. Easy to find out by just asking them direct or visiting ... I doubt I will be forwarding such silly posts again in the future as it makes NE looks ridiculous.

Good to see the confirmation re the Prechlt Mauser action information as well.

PS I did keep a copy of the original post on the other thread, which was removed. More stuff on that removed post, than was later reposted by the member ... probably will repost it all and answer the stuff when I have time to waste ...

On the latest under wild skies, Corbett's .275 and 450/400 take a trip back to thier old hunting grounds. Well worth watching.
