H. Mahillon 416 Rigby
      #345289 - 24/09/20 10:55 AM

I just took delivery of this H. Mahillon 416.
A few years ago, I sold a Mahillon 416 Rigby that was a pre war gun built on an original square bridge magnum Mauser action.
I really liked that rifle but it did have some little things that I wish it hadnít. The forend was quite thick, the bolt knob rested right up against the wood and it honestly belted me much harder than I liked. The stocking looked and felt proper but that one for some reason really packed a wollop!
Still, I kinda wished I had held onto it.

A year or so ago I came across another Mahillon, this one a post war rifle built on an FN action in 9.3X62. I really like that rifle - shoots great and has many high end features although it is a bit rough.

To my surprise, this most recent rifle, the second 416 Iíve had, is just two serial numbers away from the 9.3 and also built on a standard length FN action. A perfect Safari pair!
The work done to fit the 416 cartridges is quite slick and very well executed. Holds four down and one in the spout too!
Just mounting and swinging this rifle, itís easy to see why Selby liked his 416 so much!

Will post pics soon

I've found Imgur works great.

Still working on it...

Does anyone here have info on the H. Mahillon numbering? Would like to know when this rifle was made. My guess is early to mid Ď50s.

Still no dice with PB or Flickr
I did post photos on the NitroExpress Facebook page so if someone would copy them here, that would be great!

Huvius,

Are you able to post pics of both the 9.3 and the 416 side by side for us as a comparison.

Thanks

I will once I get set up for posting pictures again.
They are similar. The 416 is really a great rifle!
